    Yep...it's harder than it looks though. Last year with the Giants should be evidence enough. The Giants were on the hottest pitching the league had seen in like 80 years. I told you Philly homers not to take that lightly and got slammed for it. ;)

    Maybe the Yanks got it right for about 7 years ....but those teams had few big "stars" and more chemistry. As the Phils and Yanks can see this decade, stars don't guarantee victory. Go ask the 1990s Braves teams, with arguably one of the greatest pitching rotations in history, what they think about having everything you want and how that tranlates into rings.

    It's like saying the Squeelers are going to make it back to the Super Bowl and win it after effectively getting crushed by the Packers

    I'm going to wait and see first because we don't know how this is going to affect Pence. Some trades work, others don't. The other thing is if this works out, it will be a boon to Howard who's had no one hitting behind him all season. When healthy, it's a lineup I wouldn't want to face.

    Well, so far tonight, that "stiff" is 4-4 with a HR and 2 doubles.
