St. Louis is now 6 1/2 back in WC. The Cards are probably playing their best baseball of the year, and are 7-3 in their last 10. The Braves are 3-7 in their last 10 games. I’m really nervous about this WC race being a lot closer on Monday morning with most of our starting pitching either struggling or on the DL.
I was thinking that yesterday… especially how Chipper is batting w/ runners in scoring position… However, I wonder if this will negate Bourn’s speed… Is Chipper going to take pitches to give Bourn a chance to steal? He certainly WON’T be called on to bunt him over… something you wouldn’t hesitate to do w/ Prado (until you watched him try to do it – sorry, that was ugly…)
