Ah, but 59 homers in two seasons?
Well, Mike Yeo wants to work on that allowing three goals part of the equation . . .
The offensive upside of Donaldson might be higher than Moustakas. As for standing pat with the guys at hand . . . that's asking for trouble. I believe the team needs a jolt.
I was just wrapping up college at that time and preparing to work on the other side of the state.
They see Reyes as a starter, but given the depth out there and the need to be careful with Alex, a shift to the bullpen would surprise nobody.,
Martinez, Mikolas, Flaherty, Wacha and Wainwright could start in the rotation with Reyes and Hudson among the others lurking. I would expect the team to focus on the bullpen rather than the rotation.
McGee is a career .295 hitter with 352 career steals. Not overrated.
The Dodgers can afford it. It's like the Cardinals spending big to keep Molina at career's end. Some things you just do.
Well, he's put a competitive team on the field every year he has been general manager.
He won me over against the Golden Knights. Keep the kid. You're trying to win now and he can help now.
Bobrovsky is a rental player with a history of playoff failure and there is the cap issue. If you trade Allen to get him, that means re-upping for huge long-term money or banking on Husso to take over or another answer to emerge in the marketplace.
Stanton would have great. There was fit there, because the team had a hole in left field. Now the Harper thing this offseason . . . Ozuna is here instead of Stanton, hence reducing the near-term outfield need.
Why would the Angels trade the best player in baseball for anybody,
I am getting through to people!
The Cardinals took a different path post-Jocketty, building with a LOT of talent from the minors, including remarkable pitchers. Maybe Oscar T would have been that star, but he died. Maybe Nolan Gorman of Elehuris Montero is that guy. Mozeliak admits the team hasn't developed a true face of the franchise player, mostly because it contended year after year after year and therefore didn't draft high or trade top players for prospects in bailout moves.
Good for Price. He finally paid off after a series of postseason disasters. The Red Sox stuck with him -- what choice did they have and got a parade payoff.
Everybody in the Cardinals bullpen should be able to work high-leverage scenarios. Everyone. Get a lefty that's hard on lefties, great, but he better be hard on right-handers too.
More likely: Baseball isn't as compelling as it used to be. People watch games a variety of ways, including streaming. Access was not the issue.
We'll see how all the duties are parceled out.
Didn't see it. Looking forward to going Tuesday.
Pass interference is, sadly, easy to screw up.
He may only bat 150 to 175 times, but he can handle that part-time role. Good on him. Not easy to do.
OK, got to go. Thanks everybody! See you next time!
