Upper levels, outfielder. That type. Not Carlson. Arozarena? Maybe someone like him. Or a pitcher with a high floor.
All of the teams in the division are the competition. This is the one division that doesn't have a tanker. Keep that in mind. Going to be a hard division to win -- and an even harder division to score a wild-card berth from.
Sosa would be. He's on the 40-man roster.
He seems to like it fine. The odds are high at this moment that he heads elsewhere.
I don't chortle. I am an eye-roller, though. Just FYI.
The Cardinals winning the division.
The Cardinals wanted an extra player for one day in large part so they could use Munoz more aggressively. Robinson got the choice in large part because Mike Trout isn't on the 40-man roster, I guess. It's not like he's starting at first.
They can be patient, for now.
These are not related events. If they wanted Gonzalez, Wacha's health or presence or absence should not be a driving part of that decision.
That is true. They eye deceives. Now, he wasn't at his best last year, that's for sure. There was a lethargy to his play. No doubt. Don't see it this year.
I hope that kind of chat doesn't have an audience.
Paul Goldschmidt is Rolenesqure or Walker-like with his baserunning. He deserves credit for setting these improvements in motion.
Exactly. For a promotion like this -- brief as it will be -- the 40-man matters, a lot.
Sure sounded that way this past weekend.
I think he's found a way to be successful, and it's whether he can stay healthy and stay effective, not whether he has the stuff to pull it off. That curve plays.
