    i agree. was talking to a couple of cardinal fans on my way back to the KC area. they were asking what i thought of rolen and i told them edwin who. without rolen this team is not a contender.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Just based upon shear lousy numbers/low point, Alex Rios has had a a huge turn around during the first half of the season.

    Anyone notice that Miguel Olivo has rubbed a magic lamp or something too?

    It will be interesting to see if Hudson can keep it up.
