*Third base. I’m talking about third base. However the Dowd has nothing against any sexual orientation. Got to try the whole menu before you find out what “the usual” is going to be.

The Cardinals’ season hinged on two things: Lance Berkman’s phenomenal comeback year and the Atlanta Braves September collapse. Both are unlikely to completely replicate, as Berkman’s fielding enters whatever the opposite of black hole is territory and the Braves’ young pitchers are only getting stronger. The best method is Pujolsian transplants for all players. The procedure, performed by Dr. James Andrews, will take some of Prince Albert’s blood and infuse it into the body’s of the other players. Perhaps they will take it a step further and use bone marrow; needless to say, this should be done before free agency begins and Pujols potentially leaves.
