  • If Williams can't pitch

    Alan Benes.

    Per KFNS this morning

    Unfortunately, this is not a joke.

    His Cubs tenure was not memorable, so he is out to prove something this time and will impress.

    You hope.

      In related news, the Astros and Cubs have officially conceded the NL Central to the Cards for the next 2 decades sighting the competetive disadvantage they're at because of the Cards outstanding starting pitching and baseball's best fans.

          I heard that last night (or what was a hint to it) on KMOV. He said he had nothing to lose.

            I thought I read yesterday that Simo was back. He's starting one of the Spring training games.

            Alan Benes????

              We don't have a better option than Benes? That's fucking sad.

                Woody had returned to average journeyman Woody by the end of last season anyway, so it isn't that huge a loss.

                  No problem. Didn't Woody teach Andy how to throw the splitter and salvage '02?

                    You know, Alan Benes has probably been one of my favorite Cardinals over the last decade or so. It's a shame what happened to him on July 31, 1997, when his shoulder exploded on him. The guy was a stud in 1997 before that, on his way to being a bona fide No. 1.

                    I hope he finds a way to carve out some sort of his productive career from here on out.

                        That would be Finley teaching his older brother Andy the splitter.

                            I agree

                            But, that was then and this is now.
