DateQuestionAnswer
2009-09-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Giants win the WildCard with Adam Dunn (or Bobby Abreu) and Orlando Hudson?
(kmdarcy from Portland, Oregon)
That certainly looks like enough of an upgrade given how wretched the performances they've gotten out of their 2B (.242/.289/.345), LF (.261/.331/.410) and 1B (.274/.323/.419) players. Take Hudson away from the Dodgers and you start to close the gap in the NL West as well. For want of a nail...

Other thought about Villalona - it might be time for somebody to revisit the career of Cesar Cedeno, who was involved in a shooting early in his career and never was the same player. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)All right, Steve, what is your forecast for the St. Louis Cardinals from here until their season ends, whenever that may be?
(Jake from St. Louis)
I think they're going to hold on and win the division, and their pitching is strong enough that they could surprise in the playoffs. I'm also fascinated by Matt Holliday's post-acquisition hot streak, which is now over 80 PAs, shades of Cesar Cedeno in 1985. I do worry about the pitch-to-contact propensities of everyone except Wainwright and Carpenter if forced to face a superior offense, and you'd like to see them heat up one more bat, but it doesn't seem like that's going to happen at this late date. Losing Glaus has really hurt - .222/.291/.376 from Cards' 3Bmen this year. (Steven Goldman)
