Because, thanks to the Cubs, the division is still in there for the win. I find it interesting that you're ready to assume that the Cubs are going to make a move and have it work out -- and, sure that's possible -- but not also recognize the same about the Cardinals. Because the Cubs added Chapman at the deadline last year and the Cardinals added Duke that seems to give this notion legs, right?
By far the best DC movie of this current group, and every bit as good as the Superman of Reeves. Wonder Woman is a welcome and needed addition to the genre. In so many ways. It was moving. It was a good story. It was complicated, and the hero was complicated. And Chris Pine's character was excellent -- in many ways the Black Widow to Wonder Woman's Captain America. Gal Gadot is a godsend for that movie and that character, no pun intended.
Yes. Every team but Boston does.
I voted for Edmonds. So my chance is clear.
Abso-flipping-lutely. Just don't ever touch his hat on his plaque.
Now you're talking. And thanks for the reminder. Yes, Hudson would also fit in the Top 100 conversation. If the Cardinals have a third guy in the list, it would Hudson or Perez or Alcantara depending on who you're talking to and what you want to use as a measure for the better prospect.
I never ever mentioned he was Mike Trout. Mike Trout would require a package of prospects the Cardinals just don't have to give. He's under control and he's the best player in the game. Yelich is an ascending player and under control through 2022. He's not Mike Trout. He's also not Adam Eaton. Do the math.
They do not. I am where I am in part because I started a blog and wrote it for many years and continue to write it today for StlToday.com. Bird Land was one of the first newspaper-based blogs around, and I recognize that it helped me learn the game, learn how to write the game, and explore areas of the game that -- back in 2004 and 2005 -- had not found there way into the paper. I like to think that the stories that I write now for the Sunday paper have their roots in what I learned doing the deep dives for the blog. So, to "look down" on bloggers would be to "look down" on part of my own career, part of my own job. That would be utterly absurd. Also, let's be honest, the advent of blogs and the coverage provided by some of them spur better coverage by other writers and journalists -- other is important there. Other. Look back on Larry Borowsky's work for Viva El Birdos. You're going to find some of the finest writing about the Cardinals from that time, and you can definitely see how it influences and inspired coverage elsewhere, including the paper. Look at The Purple Row, and how it's coverage of the Rockies minor league system was so good that it got the attention of the newspaper and has also influenced how newspapers go out and use the power of the web to do better work about the minors. Cardinals Nation has done the same locally. This is a golden age of baseball writing because of the "bloggers." Look down? Phsaw. It's more likely we look up.
Edmonds' candidacy was hurt by the fact that Ken Griffey Jr. was on the same ballot. If Edmonds had survived the year you'd see his total grow in year 2 because Griffey wouldn't be around.
Host a chat. And you will.
I heard Big Cookie was in the pocket of Big Raisin. That's why we can't have nice things.
They have not had the same success with first-round picks. They have had success that's in line with other teams. I looked into it. And, in all candor, I expected the Cardinals to have better success later in the draft than they did early in the draft. I was sure that the Ottavino, Cox, Wallace, Kozma, and so on would mean that the Cardinals were lagging behind with the first-round picks while scoring on the fourth, seven, 13th, and 23rd. I had formulated this theory based on interviews with scouts, my own memory, and interviews with current and former Cardinals' officials. The research, however, when I sat down to do it, didn't prove that. In fact, with the article in the paper, we ran a chart that illustrated that. It was all based on the research I did that looked at what the Cardinals did round by round. I can show you my notes on that so you can see the illustration, too, rather than re-type them all.
He did not at last check. He needed a break so that they could evaluate recovery and if treatment from this past weekend was taking hold. Tomorrow morning will be key, if not later this afternoon.
Honestly, I'm going by what Jose Oquendo has said: I don't see him coming back. For years he has talked about having the role that he has now. This role has long interested him. He has wanted to work with younger players, he told several us. Repeatedly. He wanted to be close to his Florida home. He told us. Repeatedly. In fact, there was some sense that when he got passed over for the manager job that he would take this job at that point. He stayed out of loyalty to the organization --- and to the players. Don't ignore that. He has a genuine loyalty to the players, even to this day where he's sitting in the stands in Miami to watch Aledmys Diaz play because he wants Aledmys Diaz to get better, just as he will with Delvin Perez and the other charges he has. Honestly, the happiest we all see Oquendo during spring is when he's on the field teaching and working with infielders, be they Matt Carpenter and Aledmys Diaz or Edmundo Sosa, Alvarez, and Perez. He's a natural teacher. He'll be this coming generation's George Kissell.
I have no idea. A lot could depend on what Lance Lynn hears in the coming month.
Holy Heartbreak, Chatters. He was the first Batman I knew. A must-see after-school show, right there alongside Doctor Who for me. His sense of humor and the self-deprecation he showed long after that show was so refreshing. I hope that people realize that is part of the Batman canon, too. It's not all dark tones and growling voices. It can be fun. A hoot. A farce.
Follow the talent, Bruce. They have it. They'll win.
If Mozeliak HAD offered it, he would have done it immediately. It was not offered. It won't be offered. I'm not sure what you want to hear from me here, folks. Bridge crossed. The organization made that decision many years ago.
