If it is me, Reyes would be on the roster now instead of Marquis.
I mean what purpose does Marquis serve? If he actually starts another game I will think TLR has lost his mind. And I wouldn't bring him in a pressure situation. So he is there to mop up?

teams get tired from running around the bases and accustomed to see fat pitches over the strike zone and are unable to adjust the next day.
marquis gives up 7 runs to the nationals on april 28. the nationals only manage one run the next day.
marquis blows up against white sox on june 21. anthony reyes one hits the chisox on june 22.
marquis gives up 7 runs to the indians on june 26. indians only manage to score three runs the next day.
marquis gives up 12 runs to the braves on july 18. cards beat braves 8-3 on july 19.
so basically, if a game is already lost marquis will come in and give up 12 runs in an inning thereby reducing that team's ability to score runs the next day.

Rolen feels better after a couple of days off.
Had a good workout ... took some good cuts in the batting cage.
La Russa indicated that Rolen will be in there against Glavine; wouldn't confirm.
Rolen is very adamant that he's OK to play, and wants to play.
La Russa playing top secret on Game 4 starter ...
But talking to Duncan and others -- the strong hunch is Reyes will get the call.
We'll know tomorrow; the guy who doesn't get the Game 4 start is unlikely to be on the roster.
Word from the Mets camp is Dave WIlliams will start Game 4.
Cardinals worked out already and most have left Shea Stadium. They're staying in a nice hotel near Times Square.
Mets are on the field now.
I may be adding stuff later after I get the transcripts from the interview room.
