    Another nice start for LeCure. I’m sure Burton will be in St Louis today to take Stormy’s place in the pen.

    I know I’ve said it b4, but I’ve got a mancrush on Billy Hamilton. I’m excited to follow his career as he ascends through the minors.

    BP did a little piece on prospects who had to switch positions. They mention Frazier and the possibility he could develop into a “Jeff Kent” style second baseman.

    I could live with that.
