Seriously, though...all of the Cards are great buy lows right now, save Edmonds. Ummm...pretty much just Rolen and Pujols....maybe Ankiel!

Naw, prob. not

how is Nelly's centerfield defense? At this point I'd rather he be in the lineup instead of Edmonds to protect Pujols.

And what about Delgado? The guy has been consistent for a heck of a long time. The batting average will be godawful but the power (or at least some of it) should still be there at the end of the year... right? :-o :-?

Figgins hit in 2-spot last night. Another 0-fer but he's not permanently in the 9-spot by any means. He'll play the great majority of games in the top-half from here out.

He hit 2nd b/c Vlad had the night off and O-Cab hit 3rd. Until he gets hot he'll be hitting 9th. At that point they could move him up and let Vlad hit 4th I guess.

Carlos Zambrano numbers don't look that good, but he's pitched better lately. You might be able to get him a little less than you normally would.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

First, I don't think there are many Pujols owners willing to sell him at a discount. But he is probably more attainable if someone makes a strong offer. I am going back and forth on whether he should be targetted. If he's healthy, it's only a matter of time until he starts mashing. But he and La Russa both said recently that his hamstring and knee are bothering him. He's not running out ground balls ... bad sign. And his protection is so bad that when/if he heats up there really is no reason to pitch to him. There is some risk with Pujols right now.

Other buy lows:

Dave Bush -- His peripheral numbers are so much better than his ERA. It's been like this for a long time, so maybe he's just an unusual statisitical case, but I still think he's likely to put together a strong stretch.

Nick Markakis -- The window for buying may be closing.

Brad Lidge -- I just think he's more likely than not to get another chance to close this year. He'll come so cheap and the upside is so huge.

Randy Johnson -- Not sure if there's any discount, but I would buy if there is.

Henry Owens -- I think the job is still his when he returns.

Adrian Gonzalez -- His average has been in free fall, but I still think he could be a bigtime 1B when all is said and done.

Kinsler -- He's in a bad funk, but I still believe.

Brian McCann -- Only three HR's, but lots of doubles.

Konerko -- Pretty obvious.

Delgado --- Same as Konerko only age makes him a scarier proposition.

Sexon -- If you can afford to be patient.

Adam Laroche -- Not this bad.
