That's not necessarily the overlap.
Colorado and Milwaukee stand out. Tampa Bay and Kansas City in the AL, of course. Rapidly rising as a gathering spot for STL fans is Cincy.
Spring. He's a backup there. Diaz starter. Peralta and Garcia are the backups, so they didn't want his first innings there to come in regular season.
We are going mobile. Team PD is on the move. But the chat will continue.
You suspect wrong. Sorry.
Give me a break. Check the market. Google a bit. What those teams would know and have at their back is this season. But let's just take it as it stands right now. Now, I haven't had a chance since you asked your question to check with all 30 clubs about their theoretical interest in a catcher who is not a free agent, but we can deduce by what the market has offered before. Houston would be interested at that number. Dodgers. Rangers. Marlins would be an interesting team, and each of them could do that commitment to him at that age. Mets would be smart to make a play for him. He would have his choice really.
Oh, I just figured it was a nod to the modern hedge-fund front office. They get a call about a trade or about a free agent and every time the GM says: "First, data."
None I can see, no. Greg Garcia's play and the team's wish to get him ABs does play in.
Talent plays. It will work out. Road blocks are often unicorns.
False choices. He can be the backup CF for Team, ready when needed, and be in camp a year from now competing for fourth OF spot.
That has not been explored down here. It's an option for the Cardinals, but it's not one that they are going to explore without looking at other, better, defense-oriented calls there. Gyorko would be the player who has to overtaken for this to really be pushed.
Sure. Have to come from someone.
Whoever isn't pitching or whoever isn't pitching well. That's him.
I honestly don't think his hit total will be what gets him in. First ballot? His candidacy is more likely to marinate for a few years before he gets in. A lot of that will also depend on who else is on the ballot.
Molina will likely reach the ballot before Posey. I actually think they may help each other. That's a rarity because usually it's one player who stands out above his peers. Raines hurt by Henderson. Trammell slowed by Ripken. Concepcion in the same league as Ozzie and only one Gold Glove award to go around each year. The gap is narrower with Posey and Molina than the above examples. Posey has the MVP. Molina has the Gold Glove stack. Both have titles. Posey is the greater offensive player; Molina the finer defensive player. Both alter the game and are the cornerstones of the era's best teams. It's that time when comparing lifts both.
I will ask the PD colleagues in their car ...
Frederickson: Bader proved his ceiling is higher than some people believed.
