I feel so much better about picking the Cardinals for 4th place....

As I write this the Mets are up on the Cardinals in the 8th inning 5-1, but the bases are loaded with one out for Scott Rolen. If Rolen doesn't come through, it goes to the Cardinals #5 batter, Yadier Molina. To me that's all the proof I need that the Cardinals are going nowhere. Yes, batting 5th they have a catcher who had a .595 OPS last season, in 129 games.

Maybe it's because Glavine is on the mound and he hits better against southpaws, as he clubbed lefties for a .603 OPS.

Well, Molina never got a chance to fail as Rolen grounded into a double play.
