"* A QUESTION: Are the Cardinals really that much better than the Reds?
What I mean is, is the 25-man roster there (or 40-man, makes no difference) really a full 10 games superior to the roster here?
You say Pujols, I say Votto. Berkman = Bruce. Their starting staff hasnt had its best pitcher all year. C. Carpenter chugs along, OK-ly. The rest is far from imposing. Jason Motte/Coco Cordero… who’d you rather have? Theriot or DatDude? Cards are clearly better at LF and C. Reds clearly superior at 2B. Reds have a slightly better bullpen. The rest is a wash. If you want to give Looie a slight edge in starting pitching, OK, but Westbrook, Lohse, Garcia isnt significantly better than Arroyo, Bailey, Leake. And Cueto is better than anyone St. Louis runs out there."
My Take: Does anyone else not sense the point the Doc is trying to make?
