Eye of the beholder. I see on Twitter where they're too positive. Which is it? I do think there are a few teams where the broadcaster has been so dour about the team or the game experience that I wonder how ownership feels that sells tickets. That said, I see a lot more broadcasters who are telling the story of the players and calling the game and are fair to their audience more often than not. They call an error and error, if you will. And not everything is the umps fault, for goodness sake. I really hope that Bauer takes up McLaughlin's invitation to have a conversation this year. Would be a good talk I bet.
Because their motivation isn't to just dump salary, like the Marlins. That implies that their asking price will be different because their goal is.
They could all be in the rotation then, too. That is possible.
He is eligible for arbitration, for sure, after the coming season. Going into 2021.
I'm sorry again that it took me awhile to answer. It's a good question.
He, unlike some of the other players linked to steroids, did serve a suspension and then faced another one. There is action that kept him off the field. That has to be factored in just like any injury or any other violation that would limit a player.
That is exactly what I'm pointing out, yes. Anecdotal at this point, but it's got to be part of the conversation, part of the fallout from what's happened. He's a Hall of Famer, for sure, but maybe we need to take a look at the small sample judgments of his work in the postseason.
Been going there since the day before it opened. I second it. And check out the comic book shop the next block over. You're talking about my neighborhood.
I need to check back on this, but from what I've been told they're going to charge extra for batting practice before games on the main field. The implication is that the back fields are still open to the public. There will be more details on spring training in the coming weeks. You ask a good question, and I need to get that clarified.
Scroll back in the chat. It's the lack of a guarantee. The Rays got the best known player in the group. The Cardinals got the upside and possible future. They've traded three outfielders already this winter and they've yet to get any help for the 2020 team.
Maybe. Entirely possible.
He was the last person off my ballot, the one that I spent the most time debating, and I'm still not sure I did it right. The punch was not the reason.
He's a candidate. I believe Trout was not available in the question. Tatis Jr. would also be in the discussion. Lindor, too. But Arenado ahead of that duo, for now. I also think Bellinger should not be ignored.
I don't share your opinion. Perhaps others do, so it's shared here for a sense of community.
Not relative to some of the new ones, no. Didn't say that.
That is incorrect though, so it's not a factor.
Great question. I am anti-tanking for the fans, for the cities, and for the game. But from management's perspective, I get the bottom-line idea that winning makes it worth it. I should have been clearer about that comment and made the point that I was responding to the question that was specifically about spending on players, and that the comment was related to that too.
I did not mean a six-man rotation. That's not had much traction with the Cardinals. I did mean that rotations are volatile, injuries happen, and while Flaherty and Mikolas seem like locks for the rotation, there are three spots that are up for grabs, and that I'd probably put Wainwright as the No. 3 for a spot before any of the other candidates, Hudson included.
