He is a finesse guy at this late stage of his career, but a good one.
When the courts make him.
Mizzou has a low-tier SEC fan base. So expecting more than a low-tier program is stupid. They want to see greatness before they bother to attend games? That's not how it works in college sports. The big, enduring fan bases fuel powerful programs. Blind loyalty is a beautiful thing.
But if you stack up good arms and back up those good arms with more good arms, you have a chance. Then you can always trade for more good arms during the season when other teams bail. But first, stack up the arms!
That would make more sense. Trading Cecil would be impossible at this point. I would like an upgrade over Gomber on the left bullpen side, sliding Gomber to a depth starter role.
I have watched very little. Saw a little Golden State last night to see if Draymond would punch Durant in the mouth. He didn't.
Sadly, that's about right.
No, I haven't. But the speed guys on his team could have countered that shift. Today's players are all whacking away for power instead of using the whole field.
Fans always vote with their wallet. No need to unionize for that. Just go do something else, like watch a good American Legion game.
Now, his limited time at second base . . . ooof.
Metrics also cover range. Numbers suggest he wasn't as bad as he looked, not that I am pumping his tires for the Gold Glove.
Yeah, that front office would need to be thinned quite a bit to squeeze Coach Q into the budget. Fans would take that tradeoff and understandably so.
Again, I would expect several moves to upgrade the roster. And, again. I am calling for a new team goal of 100 victories. But my point in, the '18 wasn't all that bad. We're not talking about the Padres here.
I don't see him getting back into the game full-time, but he can sure suggest tactical adjustments. And I'm sure he has.
So here's one more guy who doesn't go to bed wearing his Murray Baron onesie . . .
That would be a good start. The bullpen would still need another righthanded hammer to back Hicks.
Imagine a world where a team only employed boy scouts . . . not pretty at all. The Cardinals have won a lot of games with guys who strayed from the prayer circle. You don't want an all-reprobate team either, but come on.
Actually baseball is heading that way with this whole bullpenning thing. I think it's fad, but we'll see more of it this year.
Thank god we don't have a JayBo drinking game. I would pass out by 3 p.m.
That could happen. He has the tools. Big-time power and he can run as well. His floor is fourth outfielder and his ceiling his 30- to 40-homer slugger. Interesting year ahead for him.,
