This I believe:5. God, where would we be without Hiroki Kuroda? He's started 22 games, and kept us in all but a few. I cannot help but think we would have lost 15 to 20 of those games. (He's 11-6.) Spin eight wins into eight losses, and we would be with Minnesota, Chicago and Houston, among the worst teams in baseball. This would have been the year of Chris Bootcheck. Instead, we're just three games out from chasing Bud's fake carrot.6. Once this A-Rod thing finally passes through the snake, I'd really like to see David Adams get another shot at playing 3B every day. Considering the backwash of tackling dummies we have thrown into that black hole, he's the only one with a ceiling that might actually make it in the long haul. Yeah, I know he was only hitting .198, but seriously, folks, was there ever any point to Luis Cruz. Brent Lillbridge and Alberto Gonzalez?  Do they really expect us to get giddy about the return of Jayson Nix?
