That thud you hear was Mr. Jackson's free agent stock taking a dive.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Now Carpenter almost hits a ball out.
Cards still leading 4-0 half way through this one.

Nationals blow bases loaded opportunity, still 4-0

Baltimore 2-1 in NY tonight, 2 outs to go. This Baltimore team is out of this worl........uh, tie game, nevermind.
Man I hate Raul Ibanez.
"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."
Oh of course, it's Ibanez, who I have not seen get an out in about 4 years. Every time I watch him he's hitting something far and important.
Johnson is torturing O's fans.
This day is a giant pile of suck.
"I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
Of course, the key to winning playoff games is to bring Andy Pettite out of retirement and to sign Raul Ibanez.
There is no God.
Oh and throw Chris Carpenter out there. He hasn't pitched since before taxes were due but he'll be Cy Young.
But for you Reds, your best pitcher wil pull an oblique on the fifth pitch...

And he was pinch-hitting for A-Rod, no less.
