I haven’t heard much about Allen Craig recently. What is the latest on his diagnosis, prognosis and when he might return to playing? Is he running, throwing or taking batting practice yet? If so, how is he doing?

Of course, you are right, I must have just missed it—too bad about Craig—he deserved the opportunity to be in the playoffs this year, and the Cardinals would not have made them without him. Have always enjoyed your column. Go Redbirds!

Craig started for the Red Sox last week against the Yanks……… hits.Hard to imagine but it looks like he’s through.

What happened to your band?

The 2014 draft order was released today and I noticed that the Cards have the last pick which tells me that we won whatever tie-breaker is used to determine that. Do you know how MLB decided on who had the best record this year between two teams that did not play each other?

It goes back to the record of both teams from the previous year.
