St. Louis Cardinal reliever Steve Kline's status for the rest of the National League championship series was in doubt Friday after he traveled to Indianapolis to see a hand specialist.

No. 1 draft choices are made, not born, but don't try convincing the man who had the very first scouting report on new Houston Astro Phil Nevin.
