    Is it too soon to start complaining about the lack of Frazier?

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Brewers have been hit hard by injuries

    They just announced today Alex Gonzalez has a torn ACL. Add to that Carlos Gonmez went on the DL yesterday with a hamstring injury and they already had Mat Gamel out with a torn ACL and Narvesson is lost for the year with a torn rotator cuff

    Heisey seems to be getting most of the playing time in LF recently.

    I don't really see Ludwick's role on this team.

    Well, he isn't doing much with it, thus the keeping of Ludwick around.

    Heisey at .220/.270/.592
    Ludwick at .185/.264/.633

    I'm sick of seeing BP in the cleanup spot.

    Stubbs batting 2nd? Dumb.

    Geez. When do we hire Tony Larussa?

    I thought we were facing Gallardo?

    Braun's been gimpy lately too. Hamstring IIRC.
    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

    You really need to learn about the effects of line-up construction. Suggesting that Stubbs batting second is "dumb" is actually quite an ignorant comment. It may not be the optimal choice in some people's opinions, however, it's not without merit, nor is it likely to have a significant impact either way. It's not like the team is full of .360 OBP guys that are getting pushed back.

    Can Arroyo stick one in Brauns ribcage just based on principal? Show him we don't take kindly to cheaters.

    Chat, anyone?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
