    It's nice to see that there are other teams out there that value soft tossers like Jukich. I hope when he has to face the Reds that he will do fine job of getting his outs.

    You hope he has success against the Reds? I am all for hoping he does well against everyone else, but I hope he channels Eric Milton circa 2006 every time he toes the rubber against the Reds. Of course this all hinges on him making the Cardinals roster, which isn't something that is 100%.

    I've seen Jukich pitch seven or eight times and he's yet to break 88. He's the softest tosser I have ever seen and has NO margin for error in AAA, let alone the majors.

    Perhaps he's as good as DRH or has some seriously cool junk. I'm betting he's nothing more than flotsam.
