Shawn Chacon looks to earn his 1st win of the season today against the St. Louis Cardinals. Scratch that... Shawn Chacon has earned multiple wins this season, but unfortunately has been able to record one in the standings. Hopefully that changes tonight.
Pence has been doing well lately... I wonder how long until he finds himself hitting 6th... or do you think Cooper would be afraid to move him since he has been doing good lately? I say move him up... no reason he should be hitting behind Blum.
Astros have won 5 straight and look to do some damage to the Cardinals who sit in 2nd place behind the Cubbies. The Astros are only 3 games back from the Cardinals... and start a 3 game series tonight with the Cards... so needless to say, this series could be really productive if the Astros can continue their current mini-streak.
