An earlier post I said I wanted Boston’s Christain Sanchez as the next Yadi. It should have been Christain Vasquez. Sorry gang, but I still want him as a Cardinal.
Those MLB leading 28 errors are killing us. We’re a 500 team and the Phillies are 4 games over 500,who’d have thunk it?

Wong’s first extra base hit of the year. Too bad it took 25 games and how many errors at second to get it.
