Listen To Your Mama

OK, everyone else in the world has said it, but just in case the Reds management has been waiting for me to make the final call, here it is:

Adam Dunn should be hitting higher in the order, at the very, very least ahead of Wily Mo Peña.

Let's try to get that right tomorrow, huh?

I'm going to bed.

Pujols Causes Panic With Claim of Falling Sky

ST. LOUIS, MO -- Minor panic erupted in the Cardinals' clubhouse this afternoon when first baseman Albert Pujols ran into the room hysterically screaming that the sky was falling.

Little Albie, as he's popularly called, told his teammates that he'd heard the sound of something shattering and had felt things falling on his head. Ol' Bert, the facilities manager, was called to inspect the overhead lights, but the lights were in working order. He then checked the windows, but found them intact. He even checked the television, but there was no evidence of anything having broken. That's when Ol' Bert remembered the high post-season hopes.

“I checked 'em out, and sure 'nuff, they were caving in faster'n you can say 'early-season aberration',” said Ol' Bert.

With the mystery solved, calm returned to the clubhouse and the Cardinals went back to preparing to get trounced by the Reds.
