Athletics-Cardinals preview

ST. LOUIS -- On paper, the Oakland Athletics are the kind of team the St. Louis Cardinals should beat.

At 55-72, Oakland is 19 1/2 games out of first place in the American League West and going nowhere fast.

However, the games aren't played on 8 1/2-by-11 sheets of paper, and the way St. Louis continues to struggle at Busch Stadium, the Athletics look like a threat to play a spoiler's role in a three-game weekend series that starts Friday night at Busch Stadium.
