Bowman is on my team, yes. .
No offense taken. I must remember that Cardinals fans are used to sustained excellence, even in March.
The Duke Blue Devils, fifth seeded in their own league tournament.
For Leake to be most successful, Wong has to play nearly every day and Diaz has to better. That is the only way this will work. Otherwise, the defense will need some Right Guard.
They're always concern when Rosenthal goes to the doctor. This, however, does not seem as serious as some of his ailments last year.
I wondered where that question went. Sorry about my technology glitch. D. Goold is as talented and as versatile a ball scribe as you will ever find. Those are features a Spink voter would seriously consider.
I still think Rosenthal is the closer at the end of this season, if not before.
Schafer might be your man, but he has to show me he can get the good leftrhanded hitters out later in the spring.
I think pitchers "trusting their stuff" and throwing strike one on their first pitch would speed up the game. Look at how many hitters almost always have decided to take the first pitch, even before it is thrown. But the umpires can help, too, if Rob Manfred can talk himself out of eliminating the low strike.
If Schafer doesn't make the club, that means Pham and Martinez can both be on it as reserve flyhawks.
Projections are like. . . . oh, wait, we can't say that here. But if he's at a losing record with a 4.50 ERA, it's time to turn to football. Oh, wait, we don't have football.
Once a week for Fryer and maybe twice a week in the summer sounds about right. But don't forget that Molina hit .365 in second half last year when he should have been worn down.
No. That meant Pham, Martinez and Schafer.
We should see a lot of nine-inning players this year although you might see Garcia finish some games at third base.
If Wong can get his on-base percentage close to 35 percent, that would be a big start. I'm not concerned about his batting average because he's going to be hitting eighth. And less homers might better because perhaps then he won't swing for them.
I asked Matheny about Garcia playing there and indicated that Gyorko might get more outfield time than Garcia.
There were a lot of games last year, when Moss wasn't playing, that they didn't have any LH-hitting outfielders. So no big deal. .
That would be more true than false. But Fowler is being paid $82.5 million to be a key, also.
