I told my 10 yr old son, who is a HUGE Heyward fan, about the trade today. He said, "Well, I guess I'm a Cardinals fan now."

Lester is either going to boston or cubs. Too old and expensive for us. He is meeting with the team though

We will prob make a run at volquez for a 5th starter. Lot of rumbling that we are going after Saunders in Seattle. And there's also a rumor deal in play with bj going to the cubs for Edwin Jackson

Our pitching wasn't the problem, but we still had to replace Santana/ Harangutan. Neither will be in the rotation next year.

No way do we get Lester, though, and honestly I'd rather search for a big bat and just get like a No. 4 or 5 type starter. I think Teheran, Miller, Wood and Minor is a very strong rotation by itself.

I want Edison as our #5

Pena and venters gone

@@UAdan we added Jose peraza to the 40 man. Looks like we are hoping he can contribute this year. Had the tools to be a great leadoff hitter.

Neither will be ready until summer. And nobody knows how they will come back.

If they come back in full form, we could potentially have the best 7 man rotation in history...lol

It's depressing how thin our farm system has gotten. We used top have a top 5 system every year.

Peraza is the sole reason I'm not upset over losing TLS, even though I was a TLS fanboy over the summer. Peraza has Rafael Furcal written all over him.

Probably only as a bullpen/long relief arm. There's no guarantee either will pitch next year.

Medlen and Beachy are the most popular useless arms we'll ever have, unfortunately.

Rumors are that we're in it for Lester. If we were able to get him or Scherzer, this team would be insane.

Don't see him in STL. Most likely Boston. Braves are "in it" for Lester too, I think they're hoping he will take less for the ability to be at home all the time because he lives in ATL (why? I have no clue because he's not from GA).

      It will trickle back into the economy. I told her to spend it on herself whether is $50 or saved up more but to spend it cause that helps the economy. She loved my idea of doing her part to help.

      Nobody has a problem with fully auto being banned. I personally have no problem with a 21 age limit. Not because I’m over a hundred but because if they didn’t have a Dad that could teach them how to handle a gun then they got learning to do. Folks argue the military allows 18 with a gun but they are getting training. To end on this the ar is not an assault weapon and in its bought condition is no more deadly than any other gun.
