Mostly where they've picked, overbids by other teams in international talent, a paucity of position talent in amateurs, and their preference for pitchers and better feel for identifying pitchers.
There is no end. Comic books are a bounty of compelling stories. Whole universes to draw from.
It does not. But remember you need to double it. That's the tax.
Alright let's zip to a finish here.
There were a few teams this winter who tried to engage the Cardinals in talks about Wong because they believed they could get a sell-low deal on him. That was their idea. That hasn't changed if they're making calls right now.
I think my picks in Sunday's paper will give this away. But there is a team out west that a few of my colleagues picked to win the World Series, that a major national publication picked to win the World Series, I think, and I didn't pick them to be in the playoffs. I'm probably wrong. But I'm skeptical.
If it does, it shouldn't. He played CF today. Adams hasn't stolen a game from him yet.
Deadpool did well. Logan did well. Guardians of the Galaxy did well. Batman Vs. Superman did not. That was all guns and explosions. The others had backbone, had story, had creativity, had all the traits that a good or entertaining movie does. We're saying the same thing. Comic books offer a wealth of source material for movies. But if the movie stinks, the movie stinks, not the source material.
Whomever is hitting better of these four: Pham, Bader, DeJong, and Wisdom, with a nod to the fact that if it's center field that is needed, Pham would get the edge regardless of what he's hitting.
I'm being asked it now, so I am saying that now. We'll see how it plays.
We actually just talk. Tell stories. On the way up, we talked about the best athletes that we have had a chance to see in person. On the way back, we described some deadline stories, including ones from the 2005 Albert Pujols NLCS homer. Good times.
Molina would have to approve any deal. That would be something, and the Cardinals would have to get greater than the compensation they're going to get in return if he leaves as a free agency.
The team and the agent must put a dollar figure on it. That's part of the concern.
You should definitely be encouraged by how they've played and how they've won in spring training, but beyond that -- the actual wins and losses -- let's be careful there. Some of those wins have happened late in the game against players who won't be in the majors and they were driven by players who won't be in the major leagues. Cardinals had a few back-field borrows that drove two wins. The Cubs are good. Likewise, I wouldn't take too much from their spring. The truth for both teams is closer to the middle.
I'm not even sure what it means to be "liked better or worse than average." I imagine I'm liked both better and worse than average by readers, but is there an average like for anyone? He's not a detriment if that's what average is, or if that's what below average is. The words you used have not come up from teammates. They tend to also hear different things from him than the media does. Keep that in mind. What a player is or says on camera is not often how his teammates see him.
He did? I thought Pujols just said yes to a larger offer from the Angels. Is the line you're describing the length of the deal? I guess then yes. But let's not ignore that the Angels made it worth Pujols' time to say yes and take the deal they were offering.
Some of their roles and duties are still being sorted out, Matheny said. Especially the most intriguing addition of them, the quality control coach. There is going to be some on a new coaches' impact in the upcoming season preview, I believe.
