I'm not sure if the Cardinals are selling a lot of season tickets just yet, box seat or otherwise, unsure of how many folks they can have in the stadium and when they can have them.
Molina is not going to play as many games as he has been used to playing in his healthiest of seasons. He will play the majority of games but the club has to find out sometime about Knizner.
I do not see Edmundo Sosa as a regular player this year but I do see him as a bench player. The Cardinals' bench could be pretty good if a healthy and productive Carpenter is on it and if Lane Thomas, say, becomes a good fourth outfielder.
I do not sanction such an action. Just don't send it back at all and then nobody gets hurt.
I don't think most teams care a lot about from which side their backup middle infielders hit. Szczur, by the way, is a corner outfielder. And Moroff is a switch hitter.
Thompson is 23 and I expect to see him in the majors at some point this season.
I don't want to predict the Cardinals' strategy for the future. They wanted to do the best thing they could do this year and I'm sure they thought they did. One year at a time, in these times. .
Of course, but can we play this season first?
Because they want more money or years than teams are willing to give.
The fields are not open to fans although you can line up against the back fence behind the back fields and see what you can see. Season ticketholders are given first shot at seats for games here with crowds maybe at 1,000 or so.
Yes, but the Buckeyes beat the Illini, right?
First day. Way too early to tell. Games start on Sunday.
I've always liked Ortega. Big, strong, has power and a good arm. He also can run a little.
Arenado or DeJong will lead in homers. Good stat on the homers on the road but the Cardinals play 30 or so road games in hitters' parks like Chicago, Milwaukee and Cincinnati.
I would think almost all, if not all, of the games will be broadcast on radio and many on television, since there are eight night games.
Don't know about Mikolas. He says he is healthy and he has won 18 games in a season although that was three years ago. He's a big key and he's signed through 2023 at a goodly sum.
I didn't necessarily see that major transformation other than Carlson played with more confidence when he came back. He still hit only .200 so there's more to be had there.
Steal more bases. Hit and run more. Anything that put a defense on its collective heels.
