Perhaps Lois Lane has a handkerchief.
This isn't only up to the front offices, you know. Nobody signs without the agents signing off. Scott Boras' history is that he is in no particular rush. There's no telling how many offers are out there. But they have to be accepted. I admit, though, that you can't blame people for dredging up the collusion conspiracies. .
It does make sense to pair Kelly with Weaver, if they're working well together. But, in the big, picture, every catcher should be able to handle every pitcher.
The Cardinals don't seem to think their rotation is "iffy" especially with Reyes. But I wouldn't mind seeing another veteran arm.
Tyler Lyons could be the lefthanded starter but he would have to show his knee is strong enough to last that long.
Interesting call. I would bet generic because he will have hit his 500th 600th and perhaps 700th homer as an Angel besides his upcoming 3000th hit. But he clearly he had his best years here.
The Rays would want a couple of young pitchers and an outfielder, at least. Yes, it would be great to get both, especially Archer.
Way too many interleague games. Cardinals fans would rather see a bad Cincinnati team three times than Detroit once.
If I'm bringing in Logan Morrison, or any other free agent who would get two or three years at fairly big inning, he had better be able to play every day.
If he's healthy and if you can get him, you get him if the price is right.
Mo was aggressive early and is more stealthy now. We'll see if he can add the last couple of pieces but, as I keep saying, as long as anyone the Cardinals want is still out there, there's no reason to throw up your hands in horror on Jan. 8.
Carpenter's ideal place is DH. Secondly, or firstly, in this league, it is first base _ unless he can throw better than last year from third base. .
"Launch angle" is part of trying to hit for more extra-base hits, or specifically, more power. Managers don't play for one run anymore unless it's the bottom of the ninth and the game is tied.
He's in play as long as he doesn't want any more than three years. But the Cardinals aren't actively seeking a starter just yet.
Estimated $50,000 (for everyone).
Rollie Fingers (for two days in 1980).
I think more than 800 were in the site, the last I looked.
Really? Seventeen million a year for a closer? And not the best in the league?
