From Jonah Keri (who I've already mentioned twice today) about Pujols' "struggles":He's also swinging at more pitches out of the strike zone. Indeed, his O-Swing percentage has nearly doubled in the past seven years: Pujols swung at 15.7 percent of pitches out of the zone in 2004, versus 29.7 percent today.1Now here's that footnote:1That same year, Barry Bonds swung at a microscopic 8.8 percent of pitches outside the strike zone. Think about that. Bonds led the league with a .538 wOBA that year, in one of the most potent offensive seasons in baseball history. He almost never got a pitch to hit. But rather than hacking at a pitch out of the zone and rolling a grounder to second, he waited for that one pitch he could hammer. Bonds walked 232 times in 2004 (120 intentional, many more semi-intentional) and struck out just 41 times.
yea he was sick, it is a shame he was such a scum bag.BTW i think we can officially call the Braves dead - they needed to sweep this series if they had any small chance to catch up. Also up 10 games in the loss column to Milwaukee...with 20 odd games left I don't see any way that gap can be made up...the road to the WS is going through South Philly again this fall!! That is huge when you look at Milwaukee's home record!!!
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

the plan must be to win 3 games a week with Doc, Cole and Cliff going 8 plus the closer...the rest of the pen scares anyone. Kendrick needs to take a bigger role or get traded for usable parts. if he isn't a starter lets see if he can do the job as a set up man.
