Piscotty hasn't brought it up once when discussing his performance. Never.
You got it. Coming right up.
I'm not holding my breath on any deals between Houston and St. Louis. As for the Piscotty idea, I think he would resist that. He wants to be here, helping his team.
I did. That's my bad. Tried to cram as many in there as I could and forgot a good one. Dangers of running polls on the fly. And it won't even let me edit!
Word on the street is Jim Thomas just announced he's your new Blues beat writer. Lucky you.
I suppose there's a chance, sure. Just seems like there's a lot that would have to happen -- and not happen -- to lead to that point
Don't forget Brayan Pena played in St. Louis last season
Have not yet read up on that. I did appreciate that it was an actual fight, and not a glorified shoving match. If you're going to go, go. Much better to take a punch to the nose than a 100 mph fastball to the temple. Someone's gonna get killed out there.
My list of no-trade candidates for the Cardinals would be short. Carlos would be on it. Right at the top.
I've gotta think STL is one of the few places in the country where the Rule 5 draft is deemed exciting and something to look forward to. It shows the passion of Cardinals fans, no doubt. The Padres taught the Cardinals you better protect the players you liked but thought were safe due to age or inexperience. And perhaps those former Cardinals who are now Padres has some new folks paying attention to the Rule 5 and how it works.
Decrease a 30 percent strikeout rate.
Let me ask Commish and get back to you. He'd have a better answer.
There's a chance he's not on this team. Maybe Reyes. Alcantara? Tui -- though I'm becoming skeptical.
6/7 are lapping the field.
I mean big, as in telling. Big as in they are sliding and fans are becoming more and more vocal about their frustration. Big as in the answers, clearly, aren't on this team or in this organization at the moment. They might be coming down the line, but sitting and waiting won' mean winning. Not in this division, where the Cubs are going to attack weaknesses while their window is open. Big as in the current circumstances are forcing the Cardinals to change, or lose a track record of contention they hold dear and market well.
I've said for a while that Fowler needs to play a corner spot. Eye test and advanced stats say so.
And I enjoyed every moment of it. Thanks, folks, for stopping by. And thanks especially for those who agreed to donate to the Red Cross for relief efforts in Houston. We'll go on the honor system, but let me know when you pressed send. I'm on Twitter (@Ben_Fred). Cheers!
