Makes a lot of sense. Absolutely.
I'm in this camp: World Series makes it all worth it. They're rare. They're hard. And to win one makes it all worth it.
Teams like their players. Teams like their prospects. All teams think the same these days with analytics. All teams now overvalue their prospects. It's creating so so so many staring contests. This is why.
I wasn't aware he had said that. Honest mistake. I should have put quotes around it. My fault, and I apologize.
Don't need to. He'll likely be on the bench. He's the 26th man. Enjoy.
No clue. I think it would be wise for the Brewers to get the return they can.
They already got it. It's the competitive balance pick they got. Those can be traded. Those are the picks that can be traded in baseball.
Since when? I'll steer you toward StlToday.com where I posted a story at lunch time. If you mean since then, since about 3 hours ago, I'm not sure it has changed. I've been chatting with you guys.
The Cardinals have said this winter that Harrison Bader is the incumbent in center field and they expect him to return and start there. That said, they're going to throw up the outfield for competition, and it has been made clear that Bader has to win his job, win his playing time, and there is a contender or two for that job in center.
I cannot. The Cardinals, at last check, have not had any action on Carlos Martinez. And that makes sense. He's not a certainty. His health is in question. He has yet to throw a pitch since he had a medical procedure for a sore, troublesome, nagging shoulder, and he's owed bank for a few more years.
Why Lane Thomas or Dylan Carlson could be, of course.
OK, I'll bite because I dig this sort of thing, and we were talking about it at the office earlier today. It would be the best infield defense I've seen in what about ... well, I'm thinking that 2004 Cardinals team. It could be one of the best infields the NL has seen since a certain third baseman named Robin Ventura played for the Mets.
Rockies trading Arenado to a division rival seems unlikely.
If Daniel Radcliffe plays him time is a flat circle.
Not unless there's reason. Part of Goldschmidt's strength is Goldschmidt plays. He's durable. He's poised for a strong, monster season.
