Not today, he's not. Gregerson pitched well at Disney.
What are the opposite of rumblings? White noise. Hearing nothing on Holland. As covered before, the Cardinals interest in the closers this past offseason was tepid. I was told they explored Holland, or considered Holland, but that there was no movement on Holland, as they figured, like Davis, they would be paying for past saves, not future ones.
Consider the horse kicked, the drum beat, and the quota filled.
You'd think. The Caridnals were positioned as well as any team in baseball when it came to money they had to spend and prospects they had to deal, and they did use some of that to get Ozuna, and a little of that to get Mikolas, Norris, and Gregerson, and still they could have gone out there and spent more of either asset on certainty, and chose against it. This is a path we've lollygagged down before.
Tell me where the Cardinals are in the standings, and I'll have a better feel. But until then, keep him, get the pick. Or, and I know this would be a revolutionary thought, if you like him try and sign him as a free agent.
Nothing substantive, no. Again. The same. Maybe some conversation today, but no one expects much traction at this point.
Maybe 20 years ago. Baseball has gotten wise.
Not a lock. He has a guaranteed contract, but Cardinals can bow out of it if they don't think he'll make it.
Avalanche-Red Wings was pretty bloody. Reds-Cardinals and Cardinals-Brewers got bruising. I'm not sure what you mean by fierce, but if it means anger and fighting and shouting at each other than probably Avalanche-Red Wings.
Off to the clubhouse. Will report from there.
Cardinals win, 2-1. First home win of spring for Cardinals in a brisk 2 hours, 19 minutes.
From clubhouse: "I'm betting on myself. I'm from Vegas. I'm a betting man," says Pham. Who had discussed a two/year with #cardinals. Didn't happen, obviously. Was renewed.
Some news to track down. Will return shortly, for your questions.
With a machine, sure. I did mend a tear in my khakis by hand already this spring.
(There is a bulldog wandering around the real estate office/media workroom. I'll see if I can get him to answer a question.)
I would imagine at least one would not sign, maybe two. Depends on injuries elsewhere. There's movement on Arrieta it seems recently, but not sure which of the suitors will move first. Milwaukee is in need of a starter.
That is correct. Some of the questions that point out Piscotty's contract also ask about Munoz making the team. So, there's a conflict there. I think it is worth pointing out that the Cardinals felt compelled to move those deals -- so they committed and then moved on. That says two things: One they were able to take a contract of their making and get something for it. That something was not the player they originally felt was worthy of that commitment. Jaime Garcia's deal worked. Wong's is going well. Matt Carpenter's has been good. But the fact that half of the deals have been finished elsewhere -- and toss in Mike Leake -- speaks to the Cardinals ability to make a deal that they later don't want and try to make most of by moving the player.
I was a Boy Scout, Austin. You learn things.
There is none. Which is why we don't talk about them. Wins are a better narrative stat than a predictive or qualitative stat, and in spring training they are a lousy narrative stat. They have zero value.
