....Along with my excitement over the Canes' Stanley Cup hopes comes the Reds' six-game winning streak against their toughest division opponents, the Astros and the Cardinals.

Last night, the Reds got a great performance from Eric Milton. Note Milton's 2005 stats: 8-15, whopping 6.47 ERA, even-more-whopping 40 home runs allowed.

Milton's 2006 numbers (4-2, 4.14 ERA) are, needless to say, a vast improvement. But there's this perspective from Cardinals Jadier Molina, who knows a thing or two about pitchers:

"I think every time we were looking for a fastball he threw a changeup, and every time we were looking for a changeup, he threw a fastball. He's a great pitcher, one of the best in the National League."

This is very encouraging.
