Sorry man, until they can get a left handed bat and a leadoff hitter your boys are screwed.

Miles and Bradley add that left handed bat, the leadoff hitter I would possibly agree with, there are potential leadoff hitters in that lineup, they just need some playing time to find the best fit

Both are switch hitters, but to call Miles much of a hitter at all is a stretch. He's no where close to being a force like DeRosa was, and he's only average defensively. Good luck with that.

yeah, baseball is great ... but my man V-Dub is out for spring .. and it will be interesting to watch the yanks this year, considering they signed the entire league over the winter ...

he is a decent average hitter....315 last year, and like .290 liftetime, he just doesn't hit for power, he fits nicely how we need to use him, it just wasn't the right fit for him in the STL lineup as it could be in the Cubs lineup, Fontenot is also a lefty who can get good time at second base

While he hits for a decent average but doesn't get on base a ton and has no power. None much. He's versatile, white, and hustles, which generally allows for overvaluing, especially in Cardinalville.

I'm still in Basketball mode, which I got into late this year because the Cardinals went to the Super Bowl, but I'm not sure that the Bulls or the Suns will be making much of a run at the playoffs this season so I will probably get into Baseball mode a little earlier this year.

Either way, GO WHITE SOX!

Yeah, I gotta admit, I'm a little disappointed by the Suns. I thought that once we got Shaq to combat The Admiral, we'd be able to sail through the Play-Offs & get us a title. Turns out, not so much.
