Waino will continue to pitch as long as (a) he is healthy; (b) that he doesn't embarrass his team and (c) that he doesn't embarrass himself. So far, so good.
Relax. You're not going to see any trades until the second half of the season. Don't get excited until late June or July. They will not be looking for prospects, though. They'll want camera ready players.
I wouldn't rule it out if they want him to get two weeks' or so of at-bats. We're not at that level yet. Bader will play plenty on this trip.
Edmonds was going to try to come back and play for the Cardinals for one more season earlier in this decade. Edmonds moved around a lot on his own after the Cardinals traded him to San Diego. He signed as a free agent with the Cubs, Brewers and Reds and now has a couple of on-field and off-field roles in the organization.
I have not seen him at the park, so I can't comment on that. But La Russa often has been here and he works for another team, too.
I concur in that assessment. But he isn't that young anymore.
Check back in five years. He might then be one of the all-time best Cardinals already.
Shildt knows how that feels. He managed Memphis for several years before Clapp. Yes, those teams often are a man or two short. When guys are called up, they can't wait to get to the majors. They have three days to report to the minors when they go back down, although most don't wait that long.
I think Hernandez not being in has more to do with the ages of the voting public rather than his "inglorious" departure, as you say. Steve Carlton isn't in either and he played well before Hernandez.
Brebbia and Leone both have options, for instance. Or it could be a position player like Munoz.
Of course, when you're observing, you're looking at 25 at-bats out of 600 that look different, which seems a high number to me.
So far, I would have said Yelich because we see him a lot more. He isn't apt to strike out as much Bellinger and really doesn't seem to try to hit home runs, as Bellinger does.
He's always on the list but there must be some health concerns with him or he would be signed by not. Nothing wrong with how Ponce de Leon looked last week, though, was there?
I see somebody who's won his last two starts and kept the ball in the park when nobody else was. Early on, no, he didn't seem in control of much.
Right there with Terry Pendleton. Ken Oberkfell also was a good glove man at third.
These all are legitimate factors too although if you give the fan more continuous action, I say you will have more fans. i
As they say, don't worry about the labor pains. Did the baby come out OK?
Flaherty and Hicks would be next, perhaps even next spring.
