You should be banned from using the "STL" name. We never say we like a baby bear, MAN WHATS WRONG WITH YOU???
It's like sibling rivalry. You fight tooth-and-nail against your own (in this case, the Cubbies), but when someone else jumps in, you have to defend them. So that means...
- I don't want Barrett to hit when he's playing our Cards,
- All other times he should swing for the fences, and
- I rooted for the Cubs in the playoffs. If it can't be us, I want it to be them.
But my point from the beginning is that I think Barrett is a legitimate hitter, if only for this year. I don't expect he's going to fade as the year goes on.
However, I do expect him to choke in the post-season. He wouldn't be a Cubbie if he didn't...
