    I read that on Yahoo too. Molina is the one player the Cards can least afford to lose.

    Re: Scoreboard Watching 2013 (Part 2)

    we have really shot oursleves in the foot this past week...lots of room we could have made up, at least in that 1st wild card spot.....we need to get to 2nd place before we can take the division.....hopefully we can get it to within 2 games with that last 10 game stretch of the year....I know everyone will be happy to just make one of the wildcard spots but winning the central is huge, we need to win this div and give us some room for error..

    I am sitting on pins and needles today wondering if these past 5 games have maybe pushed Walt a little further to sweeten the pot on a deal? I know a smart GM would not make a decision based on 5 games, but it could make him open up just a little bit more if he is involved already in a deal that just hasnt gotten done yet.....Walt always seems to surprise us when we least expect it....stay tuned all day to RZ...I know i will

    Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Cards are looking for a catcher. Doesn't sound like they have a lot of faith in Molina coming back this year.

    No team goes with only ONE catcher. Yadi will be out for weeks. Descalso is the emergency catcher. I'm sure they would hate to resort to that.

    I think this is the longest losing streak since they lost 8 strait in Sept. when they had a 10 game lead. Won the 2nd to last game to win the Central and went on to get swept by the Dodgers in that game where Holliday tried to catch one with his nutz.

    Yesterday he was almost hit in the head by a ball he should have caught, and then he knocks one over the wall with his glove to blow the game! All this while striking out on balls in the dirt and GIDP's to pad his record in that category.

    But it ain't just him. NOBODY, I mean nobody is hitting. Carpenter, Beltran, Craig and even Molina are looking lost up there. Of course, it could be that the Bucs pitchers are hot...red effin' hot! Waino won't pitch a shutout tonite, so they will most likely lose #6.

    It looks like the Reds better start winning pretty soon or these Pirates will start believing in themselves and run away with it!

    You think the Cards are looking to make a trade for a catcher if they think Yadi is coming back in a couple of weeks?

    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    I'd be hugely surprised if they don't build into this run and acquire a noteworthy OF bat today.

    Washington down 5-1 against Detroit (Rock City!).
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    The Nats are a train wreck.

    Indeed. I think the only ones that are a bigger train wreck are last years World Series champs. They re-signed a bunch of their guys and they are reaaaaaaaalllly not doing so hot. Every year I find even less reason to pay attention to pre-season/spring training predictions.

    Well now, I can't say for sure....Cruz is solid on D, but bats near Mendoza. If there was a catcher in Memphis that was better, poor Cruz would be out already. So, a trade IS possible.

    Yadi's backups have been dumped every year (or crippled by cleats) so it is feasible to assume that Cruz's days are numbered as well next year. And who knows? Maybe they learned something about bringing guys back too soon...Carpenter, Garcia, Berkman come immediately to mind.
