When Votto and Bruce don't produce this offense is just awful. Catcher, Short, Third, Left are just not playoff quality. Choo is slumping, Phillips has slumped for a couple months. It's amazing this team is in playoff contention. Thank God for the pitching staff.
Cards 3 - 0 over Cubs, bot 1
seriously, you cannot let cedano have a two hit day against you...dude sucks...
2. Hanahan is having the exact year I expected from him based on age projection.
3. Choo was not an upgrade in Center. He's an upgrade in Left and an upgrade to the top of the order. Either sign only Choo, only Ludwick, or Ludwick to be the 4th Outfielder.
4. There's always a way to make a trade happen. Most players are available at the right price. There were three Cubs available (not Soriano) who would have helped greatly and cost little.
5. $2.5M more would have been available had Rick Sweet been Manager instead of Dusty.
6. For the record, I have yet to see a poster on this site who has supported Walt and the two previous G. M.'s as much or as well as I have, so you're suggestion that all things that happen will only generate a complaint from me is nothing but empty banter.
Just checked box score and saw Leake has our only hit of the day. Guess I haven't missed much.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Choo now 0-11 in the series.
