    Actually I first mentioned in in post 321 of this thread before Soriano got to the plate.

    I want Rolen back at 3rd base. I got used to not having to hold my breath on every throw to first, and I like it. Francisco has me spooked. I thought we traded Edwin...

    He's not a rookie, and he has done pretty okay against the Cardinals before.

    He pitched seven innings of shutout ball with 9 Ks and 0 BBs in his last AAA rehab start.

    I wouldn't mind that from the team if they went that route. I love what Leake has given the team this year (and when they needed it badly too, with EV out to start the year), but I fear Leake is at the wear-down point. I really don't like the match-up between him and that Cards line-up...

    Looks like I might've JUST missed my pregame call of 10-2. Darn. :O)

    Really nice to see Bruce get back on track. I love the day by Gomes. Janish continues to hit. And Wood was just filthy until the wheels came off at the end. Fun day.
    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

    Do you have a doctor's report that states that Bailey's injury was from pitching too many innings last year? Or is EVERY injury due to overuse in some sort of way?

    I suppose Cabrera's injury is from too many ABs this year, aka swinging too many times?

    Believe what you want, but these young arms are the window of opportunity for this team over the next several years. I'd err on the side of caution even if there is no conclusive evidence.

    And they're also the window of opportunity this year as well. Unless you go with a Arroyo-Harang-Volquez rotation in the playoffs.

    We'll agree to disagree.
