I have some inside information that the Braves are bringing back Dan
Kolb to play third.Most people don't know this but he played at lot of
third base for the Daytona Cubs minor league team when I lived in
Daytona Beach. Ronald Emerson.

What have we told you about the needless profanity in this group?

Because Johnson and Wainwright have been silly good?

They _are_ better, but not _that_ better.
FWIW - WAR ranking
The next is Livan Hernandez (!) with 3.9, so the top 5 is separated from
If Wainwright is close enough to Johnson, then Hudson is close enough to
Wainwright. All of them should be in running. Even good ol' W/L record
(OK, I know it's meaningless, but the voters don't - at least not all of
them) shows similar story:
Wainwright 17-6 (.739)
Hudson 13-5 (.722)
Johnson 10-4 (.714)
And where is Halladay? He has ungodly 168:22 SO:BB ratio, the most
complete games (8), the most shutouts (3), the most IP (185).

He's consistently gotten on base all year, and he's been hitting lately
when others have not. He's had a 907 OPS since June 15, carrying the
load since Glaus stopped hitting. It's not undoable for the Braves to
overcome this, but they desperately need offense from 1B and CF, neither
of which appear likely right now.
