I am impressed with Cardinal's reliever lefty Marc Rzepczynski' pitching. This guy comes in around the 8th inning usually and quietly snuffs out batters one after another. Then he is gone. Occasionally, a good batter can actually get a run on Marc, but not often. I call him the quiet man. I watched him fan Prince Fielder not once, but twice in a single game last season during the playoffs. The expression on Prince Fielder's face after Marc struck him out the 2'nd time in a single game was priceless. Afterwards, Marc quietly disappeared. Marc must have le ft Prince Fielder scratching his head and wondering who was that guy?
