    On a 1-1 count they decide to intentionally walk Pujols.

    1-1 count to Pujols and then they decide to IBB him. Odd.

    He's definitely had some bad luck. However, he's hit nearly four percent below the major league average for line drive percentage. He's had a lot of softy, lazy flies to the outfield also. His swing selection has a lot to do with it, IMHO.

    Personally, I think he's been closer to deserving of his current stats than unlucky. I concede it's in between, but he's got to be more patient and more selective.

    If you look at the entire season, yeah. But I was referring to more recently...since that short break Dusty gave him a while back in Houston.

    Ludwick strikes out swinging. A 30 pitch inning. 1-0 Cards after 3.

    31 pitch inning from Bronson there. It sure seemed like more. But regardless...another solid inning from Arroyo. He seems to have settled in nicely.

    ~or 30...I may have miscounted.

    Ramon with a nice single up the middle. First and third with no outs, got to get some runs here.

That's an amazing statement."

    Ramon gets lucky as Skip missed the tag.
