Milestone watch:
Jim Edmonds needs 13 hits for 1,000 hits as a Cardinal.
Scott Spiezio needs 18 17 hits for 1,000 career hits.
Albert Pujols needs 5 4 RBI to tie Lou Brock for 9th all-time in Cardinal history with 814 RBI.
Scott Rolen needs 9 8 RBI for 1,000 career RBI.
Jason Isringhausen needs 9 saves for 200 Cardinal saves.

As we head in to the all-star break, the Cardinals have a 39-45 record which could possibly be 40-45 or 39-46 by day's end.

Kip Wells may have been the biggest bust since Walt Jocketty signed Junior Spivey to the Cardinals organization. Anthony Reyes lost his form in the off-season. I don't know what's going on with him. The MV3 are definitely not the same and as we found out, Albert Pujols is not Super-Man.

Rick Ankiel is getting back to his old form, well, save for the fact that it's as a hitter and not the top prospect pitcher he once was. In fact, here is the complete Ankiel timeline. I await the day that I see him in the majors once again.

Cardinals star outfielder Jim Edmonds' future is uncertain. Jim Edmonds is one of the best center-fielders of this generation. With as many gold gloves as he has, he should be elected on the first, second, or third ballot to the Hall of Fame.
