    He hasn't touched 90 yet. Hope he's real crafty.

    No runs.

    He got out of it. Well done. If he gets by with smoke and mirrors...I'm okay with that. Just keep us in the game big boy.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    If the Cubs can't beat our B team in the nightcap of a doubleheader, then I will feel excellent about the remaining two games of the series.

    Hopefully saving the curve and slider for the right time.

    Holmberg has to rely on his change because he doesn't have a fastball.

    So we've already decided Holmberg is a bad pitcher?

    We're going for the five game sweep. How often do you get to say that?

    With that long stride, I think the Reds will be active on the bases tonight.

    might work though with this rotation - different speed than anyone in the rotation., Leake is our soft tosser and he can dial it up to 93-94. Holmberg with his curves and changes is a different look.
