    another great inning for Leake

"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."

    Just going from casual observation, I think most of the seeing-eye and hard-hit grounders that were finding holes are now finding gloves, and this is the result.

    Yes, it definitely is. I said it the day they made the Snider trade, but I think parting with Brad Lincoln was a mistake.

    I agree. Even when we were "struggling" as a pitching staff, they were still throwing very well IMO.
    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

    Brad Lincoln just gave up a 5 spot to the White Sox. He's been bad in Toronto.

    Teams don't do that in the playoffs..I think it depends on the team and the success or lack of success our staff has had with that team

    I know they don't. But with this staff...I'd consider it. Seriously.

    Sure will miss Frazier being an everyday player when Votto is back.

    His first four appearances for Toronto were scoreless in six innings combined.

    It's only been the last two nights that he's struggled. Nonetheless, he has a 4-1 strikeout/walk ratio this year. He's been very good.
