    Good to see Navarro coming up with some big hits the last few days.

    The Cards waste Molina's leadoff double, now up to 35 innings without an RBI lol

    Good bunt by Leake moves Navarro to 3rd.

    He's a perfectly solid backup backstop, I think, despite some of the gnashing on teeth here.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "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."

    Yeah I didn't understand the issues with bringing him up instead of Mesoraco. Mez was simply not hitting and not even playing well behind the plate.

    Did the Astros straight up change their uniforms mid season?
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Nah those are still the alternates, though they have started wearing them more than a regular alternate.

    Seems like it. I was going to say if they did, they literally can't do anything right, not even merchandising.
