Imagine Pujols gimpy at 1st base, and soaking up a lot of the Cardinals budget.

And Michael Wacha some other @#$%ing place than St. Louis.

Wacha was the Cardinals compensatory pick for the Angels signing Pujols.

Thanks so freaking much, Anaheim.

So ... freaking ... MUCH.

I didn't think about that angle of it.

During the game, I was thinking, 'We drafted a guy we couldn't even sign, and ten spots below us the Cards grab this guy. If Appel is better than Wacha he must be the new Walter Johnson.'

Wacha is a good pitcher.

But he has two pitches - a fastball that sits at 93-95 mph and a change.

I know the Pirates have trouble with the change, but for the love of God, a pitcher who throws 70% fastballs, at 93-95 mph???

Yeesh.

Yes, very good observation.

All the pieces matter.
