Craig is owned $30 million for this season and the next two. Boston will have to eat serious money to move him. DeWitt must thank Mozeliak daily for that deal.
Now there is a bright comparison. I would have gone with Adron Chambers.
I suppose could police that. But is is always good to show the world just how unhinged some fans are.
I think of more productive hobbies.
Less than optimal start for Wainwright. Wong miscue, then some missed pitch location has him in trouble.
Cards down 1-0 as Wong's mishap costs them a run,
Russell is the shortstop of their future. Castro is the guy who moves. Not sure what they would want, but the Cardinals are content with Peralta for at least the near term.
Wainwright holds the damage to 1-0, but the odds of him working deep into this game diminished.
Not sure of that timetable. BPV promise this: "In future phases Ballpark Village will offer luxury residential units and over 750,000 square feet of office space." Given the money there to be made, I'm sure we will see further development. Whether it will ever become a massive mixed-used development, we shall see. But so far so good.
Heyward was not quite a Gold Glover right fielder on that play. Not a smooth approach, then the ball off his glove. But then again, we're used to see him getting to everything.
There is only one Mike Shannon. There is nobody quite like him around the game. Guys try to be folksy -- Brantley in Cincy comes to mind -- but Mike is just Mike. The broadcasts are in good hands with Rooney working as long as he wants the job, but replacing Shannon . . . not easy.
Yes, you can assume that.
Brewers up 2-0 in a less-than-crisp Cardinal game so far.
I expect quite a big of hitter rotation from No. 4 through No. 8. Peralta is off to a fast start, but is he really a No. 4 or even a No. 5? We shall see.
Kelly made the biggest impression. He is the most versatile of the bunch and it appears he has a nice upside. Anna enjoyed a fast start at Memphis, but, again, it appears Kelly can do more.
To be determined. This team could use Adams, Wong and Grichuk to trend the right way. Piscotty could also be a huge piece sooner than later, if he takes off this year at Memphis. Hard to say this team has enough right now.
Yeah, the MLB blackout thing is a puzzlement. Sports is moving more toward such broadcast packages. Everybody should get every game.
Like the attempt to get on base there and set the table. Just don't pull a muscle!
Don't mind Wong taking the walk ahead of Wainwright. Not like he had much of a choice.
This game has a flat, uncomfortable feel to it. Will the Cardinals finally strike for a big hit and shake this thing up?
Matt Adams with a not-so-heroic RBI. But he'll take it.
Not much chattered today. The pen has more experience, but could it use more power? Mitch Harris could be a factor this season. Tuivailala too.
