No, but you have to admit that the team has stepped up in his absence. Maybe putting Stubbs in the two hole and BP third helped, but they were playing the Brewers (44-52) and the Asrros (34-64). Also, it was the time that Ludwick looked like Ludwick and Frazier started to heat up. If Jay Bruce could get going...but we've been saying that forever it seems.
