It was being explored, and they are trying to make it possible. No official word, except what Matheny said: "Moving pieces." I wanted to point out Sierra is nearest, most obvious choice. Bench is too short. Again.
Leake, Gyorko, Lynn possibly. Wacha could make a case. I honestly would be alright with Molina there. I think he's done enough and has the career to warrant that nod. Cardinals deserving of three spots as of today. That would be plenty.
Thanks. I am pro-honesty when it comes to comments, especially ones like that. If they are genuine they do no harm.
1, only because you didn't give me a zero option.
Sticking with the preseason prediction because why make them if you're only going to change them? Cardinals around 90 wins. Take the over. Cards vs Rockies in wild-card game.
It is completely backward. If the Cardinals were done with him and wanted to move him they would put him at Class AAA and let him rake and showcase him and see if they could move him. Or they would have just traded him. No, instead they put him at a place where the focus is work, where the focus is becoming an asset for them, not an asset t move.
Aren't you saying a lot of the same thing with just different phrases?
See immediately above this question.
Looks a lot like the Cardinals team as it was described. Yep. That was my read.
I believe they are trying.
They are the media entities that own the broadcast rights to the team's games. So, in St. Louis, Fox Sports Midwest and KMOX are the rightsholders. Nationally, there are rightsholders from MLB Network, ESPN, FS1, and Fox. That phrase is actually on their credentials. They have "rightsholder" as their pass.
It is not. It needs a thump.
It was reported in the Post-Dispatch that the coach made the wrong call.
He hasn't gone consistently, and neither have the Cardinals. Fowler and the team are not hiding from how these things are related. He knows his slow start as well as anyone.
It's better. It is built to cover innings. Colorado will need to make a move for a pitcher.
Gyorko can play several other positions. They'll be room for him.
Agreed. That was a good spot for the Cardinals to show they are going to use him in a leverage role.
I don't believe so, no. And also the clubhouse doesn't really break down veterans and non-veterans. That's not how Matheny, the Cardinals, or the players themselves view the hierarchy, even an informal one.
