Unofficial coach so far. I'm sure he's doing something but nothing on the field.
It would be very surprising if Fowler was here next year, with the other outfielders knocking at the door although Adolis Garcia's knock isn't reverberating as we thought it would
I would concur, so far. Just two pitchers. We still have more than a month left, though. The game is very late this year, July 17.
To my knowledge, radar guns were not used much until the 70s. The key number wouldn't have been Gibson's fastball. It would be his slider.
It not only doesn't seem like it. They don't. That's why if would help if Wong could get on. Then he'd play more. And that's why Bader plays as much as he does.
Just Thursday, the Pirates waved Francisco Pena to first base to get to Jack Flaherty.
No, and not to Gabby Hays either.
You'd want to have some more clarity on Reyes before you get too crazy in moving young pitching. You might need more of it than you think.
Pham is the only candidate but he needs to be a more efficient base stealer before he can be a 30-30 man.
The word among scouts is that Goldschmidt can't get around on the fastball anymore. He's hitting 60 points less than Ozuna with not much more power.
Maybe not to the White Sox. They ought to be able to get more for Abreu.
That there really is little way to predict what's going to happen on any day, because the starting pitcher on both teams has so much to do with the outcome. Even bad teams have starting pitching that can beat you once in a while. Their players are on scholarship, too.
One more thumper in the lineup probably is needed. You need someone the other side is afraid of, as he thought would be the case with Ozuna.
They still have five solid starters but Reyes would have made this perhaps the best rotation in the game.
I say you always go 'all in,' but in free agency, it depends on the player and his agent and in trades it depends on the other team. I would hate to see some young pitching have to be sacrificed but this lineup probably isn't good enough, even when DeJong is back.
Jose Martinez probably would move to the bench. where he could be a very good pinch hitter, which he was before.
He is healthier now and he has more pitches, notably a curveball and a cutter, giving him four rather than just fastball and changeup.
I was talking about camera-ready pitching. You don't have any in this proposal. And Baltimore has next to zero pitching.
Waino may have made his last start for the Cardinals, at least until September. But he is a difficult man to knock off his feet.
That is one possible outcome. But it's June, not September.
