Weekend Roundup

Big wins for the Padres this weekend, paired up with the not so hot play of the Cubbies and the Giants makes for a wild card run, which we all know is the preferred path to the post season. What this team does on the road is just not conceivable, who plays this style of baseball but us? I don't quite understand the inner workings of this team that makes for the anemic home play, followed by the output on the road offensively.

These next few contests make for some interesting season ramifications. There is a definite measuring stick element about to take place in the St. Louis area. I think we will see how this team matches up to a true first place, real baseball team. There is no doubt that the Cardinals and their offense are the real deal, and any combination of Edmonds, Rolen, Pujols and Walker is nothing short of frightening.

On another note, Barry Bonds is crushing the baseball right now. He hit two shots last night that just made me cringe. Absolute bombs. I have never seen a baseball in Atlanta fly as far as the ones he was launching last night. Good thing he is heating up right before we have to finish out the season battling for the wild card with the Giants and the division leading Dodgers. We had better be careful in those dealings with the likes of Barry and Beltre.

Off day today, 5 p.m. tomorrow in St. Louis. Brian Lawrence faces Woody Williams. Should be a good one...
