He's had a few. But he wasn't high enough in the first-week rotation to be ready for that as his second start.
Wong needs to make plays with his glove and reach base more often. More importantly, he needs to avoid the injuries which have cost him 20 games or more for the last several years. He doesn't have to hit home runs, nor think that he has to.
I can only go by the fact they haven't come close to the luxury tax. But they have spent to the limit and beyond in the draft and the Latin-American market.
I would never rule out $200 million contracts although the potential pool has drained with the extensions to Arenado, Goldschmidt, Sale and others. On the other hand, players can see the chaos and unrest that come into play when you don't sign until February or March.
Doesn't matter. The Hall of Famers will be there.
That's code for a technical malfunction.
That's up to you. But I can almost guarantee you there will be an ovation the likes of which you haven't heard for a visiting player in a long time.
I think lost confidence in general. It has no reflection on his being picked off in World Series because he had two double-figure steal seasons after that. He should have the green light anytime he wants to _ or deserves to. No question, though, that his various ailments to his legs and other parts of his body contributed.
Tricky issue. The only answer is that Reyes needs to be starting before the end of the season in order that he will be built up enough to start next year. In general, they won't force it.
Catch the ball better, throw it straight more often and not give up so many free bases on the defensive end.
These kinds of things happen when you have a 26 1/2 week schedule, with more off days included, than the customary 26 weeks.
For a 3 p.m. game, people will be downtown about 9 with many festivities in the streets and plazas before the gates open.
I don't think so. You don't want to mess with Max.
Much better this spring, especially on the mound and at first base.
If Holland had lasted a year here, we could put him in the conversation. He was gone after three months.
If it is, then the Flag Day and Arbor Day people will be up in arms.
Albert very much is looking forward to coming back and I would be astonished if many people had bad feelings toward him. It was eight years ago.
To have three potential closers in Hicks, Miller and C-Mart would stack up with almost anybody but the Brewers probably are the gold standard for bullpens.
I really can't choose. It used to be Stan, of course, but I've gotten to know all of them well and, truly, I want to see all of them.
After seeing about 6,000 games, I think I've seen pretty close to all it so I'll say no, so far.
Ben Fred would be too young although very keen. Derrick has a terrific recall. But, to quote Whitey, when asked who he thought was the manager of the year, "It's got to be me."
Thanks to all. I'll be on until 5 so if you want to slip anything else in, go for it.
Haven't heard but they should be contributors at some point.
Once at Busch Stadium in 2007 to Jim Edmonds nd earlier that year in Jupiter to the great Red Schoendienst.
I see Gregerson getting a chance to pitch for them sometime this season. Cecil I'm not sure about. He's not even throwing now.
