What is the inside scoop on Albert? Is he really a total jerk who pretends to be a nice guy? His arrogance and poutiness is getting old. I suppose it's from hanging out with LaRussa so much......

Here is the transcript from Ron Washington's pre-game news conference:

Q. In tonight's game, the stadium will go electric if we see Ogando pitching against Craig again. The flow of the game may determine this, but this matchup, do you seek it or do you avoid it?
RON WASHINGTON: I don't avoid any matchup in the course of a ballgame. If that situation dictates that I have to bring Ogando in and Craig is up there, it will happen.

Q. You needed improvement from your young pitchers to get to this point. Is it fair to them to expect that they'll continue to improve at the World Series level, Harrison, Holland, for example?
RON WASHINGTON: No doubt about it. They have no reason to doubt their ability. They've proved that already. So I mean, all we're asking for them to do is just go out there and do what they've been doing all year, keep the ball down, keep their team in the ballgame, execute their pitches, trust it, and that's why they've got defense behind them. You know, that type of expectation, to get that high, you have to learn within yourself to keep it to whatever minimum that you can handle it. We can talk about it, but the individual that's in it, he has to handle it, and I think they'll handle it to the best of their ability.

Q. You've seen Edwin Jackson in this league before. What are your impressions of him?
RON WASHINGTON: Power pitcher, good stuff. Every now and then he has command problems, but when he's not having command problems, he's a quality pitcher. Our hands will be full tomorrow. I think a lot just has to do with us trying to make sure that we keep him in the strike zone. If we go to chasing his slider and chasing his fastball up in the zone, it could be a long night. But if we make him come in the zone, I think we've got just as good a chance to get him as they would have to get Holland.

Q. I know you were settled on your lineup, but given Hamilton's condition, did you at all kick around using Chávez or whoever in the outfield, Murphy, and using a DH spot for Josh?
RON WASHINGTON: No, not at all. Hamilton is ready to play. As I keep saying, he's dealing with some nagging injuries, but they're not injuries that he can't play. He's out in center field tonight.

Q. Specifically with Derek Holland, talking to him, it sounds like he's got a lot of energy and he kind of gets wound up. For you, is that just something that's youthful exuberance that he'll grow out of, or is that something that you think would be good to contain sooner rather than later?
RON WASHINGTON: Well, I think it's something that he'll grow out of, and yes, I would like him to contain it sooner rather than later. But once again, that's growth, and he has to grow at his pace. All we can do is give him the opportunity to do it, and we are giving him the opportunity to do it. We expect him to go out there tomorrow and contain it and give us a great game, which we know he's capable of. It's in him; it's just a matter of Derek going out there and letting it happen.
And as I said, we're going to give him that opportunity. Where it goes, I don't know yet, because the only thing we're thinking about is today.

Q. Were you sorry you didn't get to play yourself in the movie Moneyball? And would you have done a better job?
RON WASHINGTON: Well, you know, earlier when they were talking about the production, they were going to use everyone that they could get. I had some time put away when we went out to Anaheim to film, but it just didn't happen.
The guy was matter of fact. As I always say, the only difference in he in that movie and myself, I never work on the sidelines, I work between the lines. So he was giving instruction from the sideline. That's not Ron Washington. Other than that, he did a great job.

Q. Last year's World Series, of the 29 total runs given up, 18 or so came in the 7th or later. So regarding pitching changes, what, if anything, did you learn from last year that you are applying this year?
RON WASHINGTON: Well, I learned from last year I didn't have the guys down in the bullpen that I had this year. As I said, the players make you look good or they make you look bad. You know, we just didn't have the bullpen that we have right now, and that's the difference. I have guys I can go to, and I have guys that I feel comfortable can go out there and execute and get outs. And there is a difference. That makes you comfortable as a manager, knowing that when you bring someone in that they more times than not will get the job done. And the time they don't get it done, we're all only human. There's no perfection in the game of baseball. Every now and then a pitcher throws a perfect game, but other than that, there's no perfection.

Q. There's a school of thought that maybe pitching changes in the AL can be more difficult because where a pitcher is at in the lineup doesn't dictate when you make a pitching change, and you really have to know your pitcher and what he's featuring on the mound that day. What's your take or your sense on that?
RON WASHINGTON: What he's featuring and where he is that day, as you said. Usually the bats will let you know when he's losing it, or you may get to a point in the ballgame where you feel like your starter has taken you as far as he needs to take you, and you know you have the bullets down there in the bullpen that can take it the rest of the way, without a doubt. So mainly in the American League all you're doing it watching the pitching. You know, you're checking the lineup to make sure if there's -- try to stay ahead to try to make sure if there's someplace that they may bring a guy out of the bullpen that you would like to see another guy go up against him. But other than that, you're constantly watching the pitching. Constantly watching the pitching. It just depends on where he is and what he's got going on that day when you make your move.

Here is the transcript from Tony La Russa's pre-game news conference:

Q. What role do you play in slowing or stopping, whatever the right word is, an opponent's running game in terms of calling slide steps, move to first, that kind of stuff?
TONY LA RUSSA: Well, we allow two independent decisions. If the pitcher -- if there isn't anything that we set up, if the pitcher sees something, he can throw over if he wants to. And more importantly, if Yadi, if he already gets a sign and a guy takes his lead and he sees something, Yadi can call a pitchout if he wants to.
But there's so much to be done with just trying to figure out how to pitch to a hitter that if you really want to put the burden on the pitching staff and the catcher every time you walk into a series, what's their tendency, so I think we do it the way everybody does it. You take that responsibility off them and you try to read the situation.
I said before, the way that game got away, strategy is strategy. Somebody else could have done something else with the pitching. I did what I felt was right. But I was upset that I didn't make another -- I threw over once, I didn't defend the running game better because in the end I was more concerned about Jason throwing strikes and getting the out that Andrus was trying to give us, and I didn't feel like Kinsler would try it. So that was my screw-up. It comes to the bench.

Q. Edwin said a little while ago he thought he was too tentative last Sunday when he got roughed up a little bit in Milwaukee. Would you agree with that?
TONY LA RUSSA: Yeah, probably, he was trying too hard. The thing you learn over and over again, human nature is such an important part of -- I don't care how great these guys are. He went out there and he tried to be perfect. It's hard to be perfect. I think it's a good experience for him, and he'll benefit tomorrow because of it.

Q. It seems like the two questions you'll have for your lineup for the most part are second base and kind of how you do Craig and the DH. One, what goes into Ryan being the guy today, particularly given that this guy doesn't have a real big split? And two, after today, how do you kind of envision getting Craig in there and working the DH?
TONY LA RUSSA: Well, I mean, I think -- have they announced Wilson for Game 5? I'm guessing -- if he is, the logical guy to get at-bats is Craig. Whether he plays right field or DH, we're going on a day-to-day basis, so that decision is going to be made. If it's a right-hander, yeah, I'm sure Schu would get at-bats.
As far as second base, Ryan has been an important part of how we got here, and he's had a really good postseason. It's a tough call when you've got to go Punto and Ryan, and we won the first game with Nick, stayed with him, and I'm just looking forward to Ryan being the American League second leadoff. He's hitting ninth at the top of our lineup.

Q. Aren't you being a little bit hard on yourself on that one play? Andrus is up there trying to bunt, and Kinsler was running on his own, it wasn't like -- it was kind of like a sequencing thing, you had to guess one way or the other and defend against one way or the other, you couldn't do both.
TONY LA RUSSA: Well, you could do both. Like I said, we knew what his time was; his time was a tick slow. He's got a faster one, but he was really concentrating. But if it comes up today, say it comes up to the bottom of the ninth today, it'll be harder to steal the base. He has a quicker time, and he also has a couple of different moves to first base that will cut down the lead.
In retrospect, I made a decision not to mess around with the runner because I wanted his concentration. So it wasn't like I walked around town for three hours kicking myself. But the way it was played, I know Kinsler has got the guts and the green light to try it, so I should have thrown it over again and I don't think he would have stolen successfully.

Q. It was also a spectacular slide, too.
TONY LA RUSSA: But it was a spectacular throw that made it close. Defending it better was my decision. I didn't defend it, and that's my fault.

Q. When y'all did the rookie thing, you said one of the voices that you relied on was Arthur's, and I wondered about the impression that he's made. You've often been very complimentary of him from afar, but when you have him in the room, and not just throwing but actually a presence in the room, what has that meant?
TONY LA RUSSA: I mean, I'm only sorry he was only with us two months. I hate to just keep dropping stuff but I like to do it because it's fair. Earl Weaver as a young manager said, pay attention to the guys on the other side and see how they fit in because someday you might have a chance. So for years we wanted Arthur in our ballclub, and it never worked. Now we've finally got him, and not only is he an effective pitcher, but he's got a dynamite presence, he's excited about competition, he's fun to be around. And we already had a really good situation and he added to it.

Q. Based on your many years of experience, what have you noticed in approaches to the ceremonial first pitch, how people throw it? What are some of the memorable ones you've seen? And what advice would you give to somebody making that first pitch?
TONY LA RUSSA: I'd probably give him a couple. Number one, I'd get short enough to where I wouldn't bounce it because the worst thing to do is bounce it, then you look like you don't belong. If you're going to make one of the mistakes, throw it over his head because then your arm is just strong, not weak. So I'd get like from here to Barry and I would make sure -- if I ever have to throw one, here, here it is. The farther you get back then you invoke the second rule, over, not under. Like Dirk, I think he can just take one big step and hand it from the mound. (Laughter).

Q. There's a school of thought that pitching changes in the American League games can be a bit more complicated because where the pitcher's spot in the lineup won't dictate the move. What's your take on that? What differences do you see in decisions on pitchers in American League games?
TONY LA RUSSA: I totally agree with you. I went over to the National League, and after two, three, four years, whatever it was, I realized, wow, and I said it and people looked at me -- most people looked at me like, you can't be serious. There's an assumption that somehow pitching in the National League is tougher. It's not, it's easier. It's never easy anyplace, and the reason it's tougher in the American League is every decision that you make about the pitcher is based on your evaluation of who should pitch, how long the guy in there should pitch and who you should bring in. There are times, a lot of times it's a really close call. You're splitting some really fine hairs. In the National League just enough times to make a difference, about the time, all right, what -- a spot comes up and you've got to hit, and you don't have to make that decision. You never have that decision taken away from you in the American League.
So I think it's -- and then if a guy is pitching really well, you've got to be really careful that you don't burn him out and hurt him because sometimes in the National League you may have Chris Carpenter in a Cy Young year and he'll pitch six or seven and you're down three to -- it's your chance to score and he doesn't pitch. American League, happens all the time. Handling pitching in the American League I think is tougher.

Q. It's been well documented about your friendships and relationships with some of the different coaches in the different sports. When you get to a stage like this, do you guys pick each other's brains about how you deal with
championship week and the stage and all the different distractions? And what have you been able to learn and share from some of these guys along the way?
TONY LA RUSSA: I mean, I've explained this, people who are around me, I think it's one of the neatest perks of the time I've been around is that I've established a relationship or a friendship with some of these guys. They're fascinating. They're so much different than they come across. We were talking about Belichick in the room. Bill gets in front of this, and he says, yes, no. If you get Bill in a social setting, he is charming, and we have the best time. Most of the time if you ever get to one of those dinners, they're talking and I'm listening because there's some good stuff.
I went to dinner with Rick Carlisle last night and I asked him about what we do to get an edge in this series, and he said, hand the ball to Dirk. And I said, I can't do that. (Laughter). He said, This is Dallas, I can't be telling the Cardinals how to beat the Rangers.
But I don't know how to describe it. It's fascinating stuff, and every once in a while somebody who's just visiting comes and you walk away just shaking your head. How neat these guys are, first, secondly, how interesting.
And in the end probably the most important play I could make, especially with a professional coach, and even in college because guys are already starting to get distracted with their futures, about me is me, but a lot of the conversations go to what each guy is doing to get guys' attention and bring him into the team instead of getting my minutes, getting my numbers, and everybody -- hey, this is what I do this works. And it's been a very helpful exchange over the years. I've learned a lot, and the next year I'll take it over and try to tweak it. But it's great. I mean, it's the most fun I have other than being with family is having time with these guys.

Q. What are some of those things that you learn from them, though?
TONY LA RUSSA: Well, you can learn how to keep your message fresh and keep guys from being distracted in a team sport. This is not golf or tennis. This is about our team. Guys listen to agents, family, friends. They've got ears, and when you stand up and talk about team, it's just a coach speaking. There are ways you've got to break through there, and I've gotten some really good tips over the years.

Q. With a fresh bullpen, how quick are you to the trigger bringing a guy like Westbrook into the game early? And how slow to the trigger would you be bringing him in in an open-ended extra-inning situation?
TONY LA RUSSA: Well, I think if it's a close game or they're scoring and you think it's time to get Kyle, if we're scoring, too, I think it's a bullpen game, not a Westbrook game. I don't think that's a good situation for him. If it's something other than that, I mean, he's definitely a weapon that we think we have, and we just -- it wouldn't be I don't think to come in in the middle of an inning. We've got a lot of depth in our relievers and we should handle it that way. There's two or three places that Jake would help, and we'll see if it comes up or not.

Q. From your very small sample of playing in this park, does it influence at all how you run a game?
TONY LA RUSSA: Yeah, you mean, you've got to factor it in. Just like playing at Wrigley and the wind blowing out, this is a big ballpark here. It does carry some, but one of the advantages is it's a big outfield, so you get bloopers that fall. You've got an edge offensively, and you don't want to give up outs. But if you're facing a guy that's just shutting you down, then the little ball is something that you can't get away from. I probably wouldn't do it today, but if Colby Lewis was pitching against us and Furcal lead off with a double in this ballpark, I'd probably bunt Jon Jay. If I get one shot then bunt. You just have to play the game in situations and trust your gut.

Q. You are something like 40-some odd regular season wins behind John McGraw. How much will that influence whether you come back to manage again next year?
TONY LA RUSSA: It's about 2012 -- we've got a deal with our club. We don't talk about anything beyond our season, and it's worked really well for our guys to concentrate, and I'm not going to upset them by breaking them. That was part of putting the rule in.

Here is the transcript from Edwin Jackson's pregame news conference:

Q. You talked about it when you arrived in St. Louis, you moved a lot, would love to get settled eventually with one team, but what does it mean to have one of these trades pay off where you're about to pitch in the World Series?
EDWIN JACKSON: It's definitely a good feeling. You know, it's not always the easiest being bounced around, but at the end of the day, you still have an opportunity to play. And most of my trades have been midseason where I have an opportunity to play for a team that has a chance to go to the championship. It didn't happen, but this time it did, and it definitely makes the trade worthwhile to me, to be able to have a chance to play in October and have a chance to play for a world championship.

Q. You were here in '08 with Tampa Bay and didn't get a chance to pitch. Can you talk a little bit about personally how much this means to you to actually get on the field now.
EDWIN JACKSON: I mean, it's a lot, man. This is my first time having a start in the World Series. I've pitched out of the bullpen before, and just to even have a chance to be in either one is definitely overwhelming, and it was definitely a lot of fun. I mean, we have guys in the locker room, 19, 17 years in who have never been to a World Series, and me even to have an opportunity to be twice is maybe something that will never happen again. So definitely to have a chance to start in a World Series game, I'm definitely going to take advantage of it and do my best and leave it on the field. And at the end of the day if it doesn't work I know I gave it 110 percent.

Q. How would you assess your last two postseason starts, which weren't nearly as long as the first one you made?
EDWIN JACKSON: The last one was just a matter of not being aggressive enough, you know, trying to pitch, and next thing you know you find yourself behind in the count, and I'm definitely not that type of pitcher. I'm a pitcher who's going to be aggressive, and if I make mistakes they're going to be aggressive mistakes. I was kind of tentative last game. Wasn't nervous or anything, it was just a matter of going out and staying relaxed but not being too relaxed.
So definitely I'll come out this game being aggressive from the first pitch. If it doesn't go the way I planned it, I'll definitely be 110 percent effort giving, and I plan on definitely not having a start like last time, and hopefully it goes well.

Q. Obviously they put up a lot of runs in this ballpark. You're familiar with this ballpark, obviously, this team. Just talk about the challenges going into tomorrow.
EDWIN JACKSON: I mean, at the end of the day, the park is the park. Both teams have to pitch in it. We get to hit in this park just like they do. You definitely can't pitch to a park. You have to go out and stick to your game plan and make pitches. I mean, as a pitcher you strive to keep the ball down anyways, regardless of what park you're in. If you go out and execute pitches, I mean, you might have some hits, there might be a routine fly ball somewhere that might turn into a double or a home run, but it's just part of the game. Both teams have opportunities to do the same thing.
So nobody is going out and trying to pitch different according to park. You're going to go out, stick to your game plan, and hopefully it works out.

Q. Nowitzki is throwing out the first pitch tonight. What are some of the memorable first pitches you've seen people throw? And what would be the key advice you would give to somebody throwing out first pitches?
EDWIN JACKSON: I've seen a few different first pitches. It is pretty fun watching President Obama throwing out a first pitch. You get to see the president on the pitcher's mound sharing the same spot that we work at and throws out the first pitch.
The only advice you can give is throw hard. If you miss, miss hard. Dirk has done it before and he has a second chance to do it. I'm sure this time will be a lot better than the first time. I want to say the first time he missed high, if I'm correct, but I'm sure he's got his practice in between then and now.

Q. You faced the Rangers earlier this year. What do you remember about that start? And how does having already faced them this year help in the preparation?
EDWIN JACKSON: I mean, this team is a team. They have a great team. They have speed, they have power, and they mix them in well. Those guys have been playing together for a while, and they're hungry just like we are, especially last year going to the World Series and not winning.
So they definitely have the experience, and they're not going to fold under pressure, but it's just a matter of execution at the end of the day. We know what they have, they know what we have. You know they're going to get on, they're going to run, they're going to hit and run, they're going to steal, they're going to bunt and then they are going to mix in power, as well. Hopefully it all goes well, you can keep everyone off the bases. It's not always that easy, but you just always have to mix them up, hold them a little bit, make them pause on the bases and not just let them get in a rhythm where they see the rhythm and they can run all over you.

Q. This is going to be the first start you get for the Cardinals where you don't get to bat. Are you going to miss that?
EDWIN JACKSON: It's a little different when you don't get to hit, but definitely I won't complain about having another bat in the lineup. You can have a Craig in the lineup, who's a guy who's been clutch for us this year, and you get to have an extra at-bat. I would definitely rather have him hit than myself. You know, he's going to drive in runs, and he's a great guy to have in there. So I definitely won't mind the extra help.

Q. To kind of follow on what you were just saying a minute ago, how big a part of controlling the running game are you as opposed to leaning on Yadi? And is there anything they emphasize or preach or do differently here than maybe other places as far as pitchers controlling the running game?
EDWIN JACKSON: A lot of times it's on the pitcher. You see guys get good reads off the pitcher. Yadi has one of the best arms in the game, you know. He's been known to throw runners out. But at the end of the day the pitcher has to give the catcher a chance. If you don't give the catcher a chance to throw a runner out, it doesn't matter how good his arm is. Those guys out there, they're studying, they're doing their homework, so they know bits and pieces about every pitcher. You just have to mix it up. The better you can mix it up, hold the ball here and there, throw over and slide steps in between. The better you can do your job as a pitcher of holding a runner, the better chance a catcher has of throwing the runner out.

Q. You mentioned mixing in the slide steps. How often do you feature that? And are you comfortable when you go to the slide steps?
EDWIN JACKSON: I mix in my slide steps. It's something that I'm real comfortable with. It's not a problem. Just have to take your time and still make a pitch after that. I mean, you see some pitchers, they get so worried about the running game that they forget about the hitter. At times it can be tough, but as a professional that's what we get paid to do. You have to be able to do both, worry about the runner and worry about the hitter at the same time.
It's just something that you practice on and you get ready for situations like these, especially against teams who are aggressive on the base paths.

Q. This series has two of the better pitching coaches in the game in Mike Maddux and Dave Duncan. What's it been like for you working under Dave Duncan? And how has he helped you progress as a pitcher?
EDWIN JACKSON: Dunc is a great guy. He's a man of few words, but when he does speak to you, you know there's definitely information that can help you. He's an open book. If you go up and ask him about anything, he definitely has answers for everything. He's been a great help. You know, he's changed some things mechanically when I was tipping or not. So we made a few adjustments, but Dunc is one of the best in the game. You have a lot of guys that have pitched under him that have great careers, and it's been a pleasure to work with him.

Gordo ... is Lohse the best choice to start tonight? Do you think Tony considered Westbrook and should he have in your opinion?

Jeff Gordon: 
Lohse was the better pitcher late, so he deserved the nod in the postseason. Westbrook could have value in long relief.

Do you like Theriot over Punto in this game?

Jeff Gordon: 
Like the bat, yes. We should seem some major run scoring tonight. Drop-off defensively, but this will be an AL-style game.
