Okay, I think it is time for Johnny Moz to step up and get this team the pieces it needs to stay in the race. There is a flatness to this team right now, as they have come out of the break losing 3 of 4.

Here's what I would like to see:

1) Get at least one lefthander for the bullpen that can get left-handed hitters out. Valdes doesn't look like he can get lefties out, so why is he here? Miller has been so-so all year. The bullpen desperately needs a top-flight situational lefty.

2) I'd like to see a starting pitcher added, and possibly move K-Mac back to the bullpen. Carpenter has been great lately, but it seems as though Westbrook, Lohse and McClellan have teetered between okay and mediocre over the last month or so. I think the rotation needs a shot in the arm.


That's it, in my opinion. The lineup is fine now that everyone is back and healthy.

I'm never one to be in favor of making a deadline trade just to make a trade, but the feeling I get of this team is that it needs one. They seem to be waiting for that shot of adrenaline that can come from a significant deal. Time to get busy, John.
