Yep. That will have to happen. Don’t know who will get cut. Neither do Cardinals. An injury elsewhere might make that decision for them.
As of today, a 4. I reserve the right to bump that up to a 6 after the season and the market begins to take shape.
Despite the peppiness of my writing in this chat, I have not, no. I have visited the garden.
No, because that would be wrong. I stand by the 4, and just request the readers to understand that, you know, things can change at the end of a season and a team’s plan can gain new info, new direction, and that a 4 on Aug. 13 can be a 6 on Nov. 14 because ... things change.
Not at this point. He's going to have to go gonzo during the playing time he gets to force his way ahead of Jose Martinez and Jedd Gyorko in that rotation at the corners. All righthanded bats.

Nope. It's Nike. It's A-OK.
Gyorko by the numbers. A wash by the eye test.
That is true. And it has nothing to do with their ages. It has to do with the offers.
Possibly. There is not a minimum number of games, no.
Alright. Give me a moment. I have to relocate to the ballpark. Then we'll pick up speed there.
Agree on Iglesias. He’s in the conversation. Viva run prevention.
Only if that is subsequently negotiated.
If players vote for him to get one.
That would be a weird way to do it. So, no.
As needed. Often these decisions are made for them by injuries or performance. Would wrong the hands or gnash the teeth too much about the chemistry. Winning makes that these days.
Urban legend. Hitters hit. His hot streak began when he was hitting second. Shildt has said he intends to keep Carpenter at leadoff this season and any conversation will take place after the season’s end.
