Around The NL Central In Six Sentences

In his last 22 appearances in 2007, the Brewers' Chris Capuano went 0-12 (a franchise record 12 losses in a row) with a 6.08 ERA, which explains why he only received a $500,000 raise for 2008.

Kip Wells, Troy Percival, David Eckstein, Scott Rolen, Gary Bennett, So Taguchi, Jim Edmonds, and Walt Jocketty may be gone from Saint Loo, but Yadier Molina isn’t going anywhere.

In this country the accused are innocent until proven guilty; in Houston, some are even invited to coach at a team’s mini-camp.

Sarasota, Florida and Goodyear, Arizona are vying to be the spring training home of the Cincinnati Reds, which is more interest than the Reds see from the people of Cincinnati all summer long.

In arguing that Freddy Sanchez should be compensated like the Major Leagues' other, top middle infielders, Sanchez’s agent forgets that his client doesn’t actually play for a Major League organization.

Finally, I’m not sure what it says about me that I agree with Jay Mariotti, but I do know that it doesn’t feel good.

  • any opponent preference for NLDS?

    Mets are down to 1 great pitcher instead of 4. Syndegaard may pitch Sunday which means if Mets win the WC game, he'd be set up for Game 1. There's a chance they clinch a spot by Sunday so he'd pitch the WC and then we'd probably get Colon for Game 1. They've certainly had the hottest bats over the last week and month out of the WC options.
