Not the Giants, they can't even hit against the poorer teams in the regular season. The team that could really challenge them is the Cards. They have 3 DOMINANT starters in Wainwright, Carpenter, and Pineiro, Ryan Franklin has suddenly become last year's Lidge, and they can sort of hit with Pujols and Holliday. I still think the Phillies will win, but they could make it interesting.

Yeah the Giants have seven important games comming up all against the Wild Card Leading Rockies but I don't think the Giants will make it they will lose the Wild Card to the Dodgers. Rockies will take the Division

It was Eric Bruntlett who was playing second base. Utley had the day off. I just watched Tulowitski's triple play, and I'm not sure how it's better at all. They both caught a line drive, tagged second, and then tagged the runner. Everything leading up to Bruntlett's play was amazing. He had already errored and made a bad play (that wasn't an error) that inning. It ended the game when the Mets had the winning run at the plate. A situation like that is why I love baseball. An unassisted triple play in itself (Tulowitzki) is amazing, but everything leading up to the play, and the fact that it ended the game made it incredible and more enjoyable to watch then Tulowitzki's.

And? I don't really see how that makes it better. Clearly, there's no answer and we're just choosing the player from the team that we like. However, people do usually improve in fielding throughout their career, but of the three (hitting, pitching, defense) I would say that any defensive feat is easiest for a rookie to do.

Eyeball did you see the winner for the Rockies? Adam Eaton :lol: . Wow he was bad, sorry you guys have him. He gave up 3 runs before Spliborgs hit the slam right? Phillies won again, and they get to sweep the Pirates this week.
