I wouldn't rule out Scherzer, who still wants to play here, I think. As for the rest, ask me at the end of the month when we're at the halfway point of the season instead of just one-third.
More than they used to, that's for sure. Look at the Yankees' lineup. They're contenders, aren't they?
I'm sure Coach Maddux is trying to make some of those points on a daily basis. It makes sense to me, too.
You are correct. But there are those times like last night when you say. . . hmmmm.
I should have mentioned Ponce de Leon, who figures into the potential starter mix besides Oviedo and maybe Woodford.
I'd rather see it be 15 days, like it used to be, and make it harder for front offices and staffs decide what they want to do. Anything to add more intrigue to the game.
As best I can determine, it is 7-13. But those are records of teams now, not necessarily when the Cardinals played them.
I do not remember him traveling or working out with the team during the playoffs. But that doesn't mean he wasn't around for part of them, at least.
He gets paid for days he's on the big-league roster. Sometimes, he has been on the club for more than one day when he is starting but even that one day is worth a lot more than a comparable day at the minor league level. And he has been on the taxi squad several times, meaning he would get big-league meal money also.
He's at $6 million this year. I don't know how the Rockies regard him for their future but I'd take a look. He might get a good free-agent deal.
I must admit. I kind of like that. But I'm a big fan of extra innings and strategy, as long as they're not on deadline.
I haven't heard that. Perhaps if he was a reliever, but most times those Tommy John guys need a whole year or more to recover.
I think the fix already is in on that one. But Flaherty's injury doesn't hurt the pro-DH crowd's argument.
Helsley's great stuff certainly hasn't been equated by his performance although, strangely, he has retired more first hitters he's faced than any other reliever on the staff. It's the second, third and fourth ones that have been the problem.
It probably does although Musgrove no-hit one team and it wasn't the Cardinals. I have to say that Wheeler and Woodruff were the most dominating of that group against the Cardinals.
I don't know the exact answer but what I do know is that he isn't getting many swings and misses and that often separates good from average.
Facially, yes. I must say, though, that I never thought Muncy would turn out to be this good of a player.
