    Ahh... but I used the qualifier SOLID lefty. What we have is not at all solid... they are horrible.

    I'm not far off of saying that myself. It is sad in a 2-2 game... in the 5th, you have almost NO chance of winning. Today... right now is a perfect example. If the Cardinals don't have a lead half...

    As of last night's game, our relievers are 8-18.... Our offense is actually above average at everything... except scoring runs. Our starters are still one of the best rotations in baseball.......

    Also... on top of that, when a pitcher blows the lead... you pull him.

    Just when I was starting to have a little bit of faith in Cecil. We need a closer. This pen is responsible for WAY too many losses this year.

    While I understand he doesn't fit in the outfield... I'm thinking lineup wise. We need the bat.

    This (in my opinion) was the absolute best thing that could happen for us. Quintana is a very good pitcher... is he elite? No. He's a solid #2 guy in my opinion. The cubs gave up an absolute boat...

    Yepez plays almost exclusively at first base now. In 2015-2016... he played 67 games at first compared with 10 games at 3rd.

    Yeah, I kind of wonder the same thing. Carp could have moved back to 3rd, but then do you put Gyrko at SS? Obviously once Wong goes down, you could put either Carp or Gyrko at 2nd. I'm ok with...

    Not much accomplished, that's for sure. I agree it would have been nice to get a scorer, but they did add 25 goals with Brayden Schenn. If Fabbri comes back healthy, we should be in a decent spot...

    Great win... and the right move for once by Matheny. He almost waited too long, but a win is a win. I just can't understand how he doesn't realize when his guys "have it" and when they don't.

    I'm perfectly fine with giving him spot starts. After tonight's performance, he deserves another start. Start him until he cools off. I'm a big fan of playing the best player available.

    I would assume that they know by watching BP. Give Mejia 10 AB's... 20 AB's... 100 AB's... it still doesn't tell you what he is. He could be hot, he could be slumping, he could be lucky or unlucky.
