Wow, team is collapsing - Gave up 4 runs in the eighth inning...Still two on with one out. Not going to watch the rest of the game...just hope they pull it out when I check later.

Cant believe we blew a 6 run lead but I cant believe Matt Kemp hit a Home Run! A game winning Home run!

2 games back of St Louis. Man, a wild card spot is going to be extremely difficult with them having most of their games against the scrub Cubs and Astros. Also, Milwaukee is 0.5 games behind us...Good chance they pass us.

More of a traditionalist when it comes to traditional Mexican music, so I'm a Mariachi guy. But it's not bad.

Gonzalez's Mariachi Loco tho>>>>>>

Us Zacatecanos love that tamborazo. Guess not so much in Jalisco?

yo.

Pretty much anything goes in Jalisco when it comes to music, i've seen norteño, banda, tamborazo, durangense, etc, all live.

But nothing compares to Mariachi. It's pretty much a given a mariachi will be present at any special occasion with my family. We love it. Nothing says Jalisco like tequila and mariachi music.

The management is proactive look for better starters and relief pitches to be added for 2013, next year's lineup should be great

LF Crawford
2B Luis Cruz
1B Gonzales
CF Kemp
3B Ramirez
C AJ Ellis
SS Dee Gordon
Pitcher

Bench: Mark Ellis, Jerry Hairston and whoever we can add

Looks great, but it's not so different from what we have now. I don't care about the talent, I just care about the players living up to their potential.

Cards got a huge break, in that they also play the Reds/Nats, except they have them as last games, when they're both going to be clinched, and not playing for anything.

Actually Kasten was on the radio and said he could be back for spring training and the entire staff expects him to be ready for the season.

He had Tommy John surgery but its not as big of an issue for an outfielder. But even if he misses spring training and the start of the season, he'll be back in May at the latest. That's not bad at all.

^ Sounds good, we'll see, but sorry to be negative again, but you've gotta' be realistic or at least consider all possibilities: even then, it's not a guarantee that whenever he does ultimately come back, he'll produce or be the player he once was, if not quickly, possibly not ever. Taking that much time off, the rust, the timing, the rhythm, the mental aspect. Baseball as you know better than just about anyone, can be extremely tricky & challenging, arguably more than most sports.

Oh I agree 100%.

Crawford's recovery is 6-8 months. When people hear Tommy John, they think the worst and feel players are out an entire year, but thats only for pitchers. Now you have to take into account setbacks but if everything goes well in rehab, he'll be lightly throwing and swinging in December then increase his activity in the weeks following.

Biggest thing will be getting back into a rhythm. Luckily his athleticism will be there which is a big part of his makeup as a ball player. Personally, I'd be shocked if he wasn't in the opening day lineup next season. But everything has to go well in his recovery and for as much as he's owed on the contract, if he's out a month into the season to be on the safe side, then so be it.
