As long as he has options he's in play for not being in it. That's the truth. And you wanted the truth. So now don't tell me you can't handle the truth.
They're humans. They don't have leashes.
Welcome to the mix, Mysterio. Eager to see Spidey make the neighborhood international.
Adding a pitcher, most likely a reliever.
It can be both. He also had a personal tragedy last season that he was candid talking about -- eventually -- and one of the things he told me for that story was how being in and out of the hospital to support his wife and her family meant that he had little time and little venue for workouts, and that was costly for him on the field but necessary for him to be there for family.
How do you check on a friend's health by swinging my and seeing them in person? Same thing.
John Brebbia was already adored by his teammates. He had standing.
Depends entirely on playing time. I wouldn't put him as a leader at this point because his at-bats are in question. There are four, five favorites ahead of him who will get more playing time.
Spring training is important to these two players. They must perform well.
Hence the importance of spring training. He knows it.
He's in the mix for sure.Jose Martinez also plays for the Cardinals.
There is. As could Webb. And eventually Cabrera. Same thing goes for the bullpen that is in play for the rotation, with a twist. There is obviously a need to have at least one lefty in the bullpen and likely two, but beyond that the Cardinals are going with best over handedness.
Of course they would. And he might. And they'd be OK with that.
The Cardinals traded from areas of depth and didn't miss any of those players and they acquired the kind of player they didn't have handy. That's a good trade.
Fourth outfielder. Ozuna could stay and he'd get that chance, too. He's competing with the Thomas, Garcia, Williams group for that foothold on the roster.
Millennials these days. Have completely forgot the art of in-person communication. Maybe he could Snapchat him or hit him up with some DMs on the 'Gram. Sheesh.
I'm not sure I get it. It's not the mustache. Guess I'll have to see Gallegos pitch more.
His role is wherever the Cardinals need him. Could see him as this year's Brebbia. Bouncing back and forth and providing everything they need when called upon -- and, oh, he can also start. That's a valuable role, and Ponce de Leon is set to thrive in it.
Greg Garcia had a quiet role in it. So they'll have that spot to fill. Jack Flaherty does more than usual for a player of his age. Bud Norris had a part, and now you'll see Andrew Miller change the dynamic of how leadership is done in the bullpen. Matt Carpenter sets a tone by deed and he's worked on finding his voice as a leader on the team.
Have to step aside briefly here to complete a task. Will return shortly.
Yadier Molina is at the podium. I will return after that presser.
