The would prefer great. Like you, they are waiting on word from the other parties.
Anyone with an Internet connection. The Cardinals have one, at least check.
I was careful and respectful to use the terms that he did and that he described and to use the quote from him so those are his words. He should own them, I felt. It's only fair. That's why you'll see in the story how he had feelings of depression and feelings related to depression and that he, in quotes, talked about how he was depressed. People around the team and close to Fowler confirmed those descriptions and that he was dealing with feeling and symptoms related to depression.
Nah, much better than that. Let's go 8 to 1.
Going to have to be more specific. That's like asking me about Santa's reindeer. Which one?
I'm saying those comments were unfair. Mozeliak was trying to describe the team as a whole and his comments put the weight on one player. That's not fair. And if you think it was one player that deserved that criticism than you and I were watching a different Cardinals team. They were a mess at the time. Fowler acknowledges his role in it, and this past week offered insight into why. Mozeliak was quite clear and quite apologetic about singling out Fowler -- but he did not take back his general comments about the concern he had for the overall malaise of the team. He did not walk those comments back. He merely said he meant a more general term and not to single out a specific player. That, to me, seems honest and fair -- and pointed -- and in hindsight telling.
No, it speaks to his age and the concerns about his health. That's all. There is a lot of concern about his health and mileage and durability and a one-year deal at his age would allow him to enter the market again next year with a healthy year and a chance to take a swing at the big deal one more time.
They needed a lefthanded-hitting center fielder. Robinson is that, regardless of his level.
They also didn't have a right fielder named Carlos Beltran or a closer by the name of Jason Motte. I'm not sure that I would go so far as to connect these dots. That said, Austin Gomber has an edge when it comes to being in the rotation this coming year -- and his handedness will break all ties, and I wouldn't be shocked at all to find him in that rotation come opening day, out of handedness and out of winning a competition for the spot during spring training.
No. Tanking is the greater issue. Launch angle will evolve out of the game. Like shifts. Tanking is the plague on the game.
No he didn't. Not at all. He was joking. Joking. He said that so sarcastically to the host in New York. They had a chuckle. The world kept spinning.
That's why conversations haven't ceased. And it's why the Cubs like him, too.
No. They have a manager. He's signed for the next two years.
Sept. 1 callup seems a good bit. Injuries and poor performance could hasten his arrival, as always.
He could play first. He could learn the outfield. Anything is possible, within reason. They'd make it work. This is nothing to lose sleep or harangue on Twitter about.
Limited to pleasantries. If the Cardinals made a play for Brantley -- again -- it would come at the end of a series of moves that they don't see making at this point. That's how it's always been.
Not with the arrival of Robinson.
