Default When did this happen?

The Cardinals are TIED for the division lead with the Reds of all teams! Do they need Pujols or what? What a one-man team.

Easy there, you're talking about a team that won 100 games the last two years in a row, and won the NL pennant only 2 years ago. The Reds have quite a pitching staff, and are streaking now. The Cards are struggling a little without Pujols, but their pitching staff will get them through this. Certainly not a one-man team.

To me their pitching staff doesn't seem as strong as it has been in past years. Mulder is really struggling and I wouldn't trust Sidney Ponson at all.

The bright spot on their team right now is Scott Rolen, who is tearing up opposing pitchers with his .343 average. I think they will still easily win the division and that the Reds eventually won't be a factor, but for right now this should be big news.

Eckstein is also having a career-year average-wise (.319). Mulder will snap out of it tonight against Milwaukie, and anything we get out of Ponson is a bonus.

That said, the Reds are no joke. Bronson Arroyo was a huge pickup for them, and Aaron Harang is also having a great year. Follow that with Eric Milton, and a great lineup, and you got a pennant race. But, of course, the Cards will win the division.

Ponson is an asshat.

The "one-man team" is back in the division lead, by 3 games, without Pujols.

Scott Rolen is absolutely nailing the ball right now. I have him on my fantasy team...

and he' s hitting .358 currently!

He's really picking up the slack offensively. He's certainly not hitting homeruns the way Pujols was, but he's hitting doubles like they're going out of style. Plus, he's the best third baseman in the game defensively.
