Post All Star Break notes

2
  1. Josh Kinney is not effective... ERA and FIP around 7 (does not included tonight's bases loaded walk)
  2. the second half could involve lots of injured Derosa and Glaus. plenty of interesting storylines to follow there. hopefully this means less Thursty
  3. Colby Rasmus is for real... .800 OPS for a rookie is very nice... 5.5 to 6 WAR player for a season is amazing (he's already around 3)... and he is already arguably the best defensive center fielder in the game
  4. Brendan Ryan on defense is a ton of fun to watch at shortstop, he is rivaled only by Jack Wilson and JJ Hardy in defense... and he is one of their highest ranked in Spd 6.4 at fangraphs
  5. who woulda thought our team's pitching would be lead by Adam Wainwright and .... Joel Pineiro? And Ryan Franklin being an elite closer? he sucks!

Springfield Cardinals.
