Again, I must apologize for my absence. i have been, as Bill Murray would put it, Army training SIR! Anywho, I'll probably be laid up for a while cuz of a busted up hand. No big loss. As long as I can still swing a bat and catch a ball, I'm good to go.

But on to bigger and bette things.

There was a news blurb on Baseball tonight a few months back about El Hombre's contract. I think John Kruk first brought it up. I think what he said reigns true. The Cardinals had better sign him to an ARod type contract. He is, by far, the best 1st Baseman that I have seen since......And it would be a shame to the Cardnation if Moz let El Hombre go. If that happens, heaven help Moz.

As far as signing Hallady, good freaking job.

Next on the agenda, pitching. I liked Joel Pinero. It was kind of sad to see him go, but I am glad he is going to a contender. I think, as well as the other Cardinal faitful will agree, pitching is probably the utmost of all our concerns and we need to address any and all possibilities for starters, middles and relief pitchers. One pitcher that I would like to see come back, aside from the regulars (adam, carp, etc) is John Smoltz. He still has more left on his plate and I would love to see him retire in a Cardinal uniform and most importantly, get some more hardware if you get my drift.

There may be more come from this, but want to leave you with this parting shot. What will Albert Pujols do for an encore performance since winning his second straight MVP (3rd Overall)? How about this...


THE FIRST TRIPLE CROWN WINNER SINCE THE STONE AGES!

He has the clout to pull it off.

Pain meds are calling my name so, to all the redbird faithful, I bid you farewell til next time.
