That's right Homey....Like La Russa, Baker did not know how to use RL....I told you guys the minute Lud hit Cincy that it was a MONSTER aquisition. I recall predicting that batting behind Votto he would bat .270, get 30 HR's and 90+ RBI. Very few believed me. But if he had played every day he would have exeeded all those numbers.
Due to Votto's down time, and the fact that JC is a pitcher, I would call it a dead heat between Ludstick and BP.
