Those guys are all ahead of my time. I was immersed in my Detroit Tigers: Don Wert at third, Ray Oyler at short, Dick McAuliffe at second and, of course, the great Norm Cash.
I don't see the correlation.
No, those are not acceptable numbers for a right fielder.
OK, well you sure convinced me.
I'll just have to try harder I guess.
I can live without the DH. Although . . . the Parade of 9,000 relievers that we've seen in St. Louis is recent years has been tiresome. This excessive reliever use might beat the love of the DH back into me.
My number is somewhat higher than that, counting stadiums and arenas that are long gone -- Tiger Stadium, Comiskey Park, Memorial Stadium, Municipal Stadium, Candlestick, Chicago Stadium, The Olympia . . .
I would not be surprised if he landed back in Washington, since the Nationals have loaded up AND come back to him with more money. I just don't see the market coming back within range of the Cardinals.
Pronger dismissed the notion of returning to Philly as a GM. But he IS a GM in training. And Armstrong is about out of time here, as noted earlier. The funny thing is, Doug dumped a lot of guys who have been terrible or injured elsewhere and he still ended up with the league's most disappointing team.
Trolley runs without incident. We can send a man to the moon, but we can't run a trolley?
The thing is, we're paying players to hit home runs. Nobody makes giant coin getting down the safety squeeze or hitting behind a runner. So baseball as a team game has eroded.
He had a 3.20 ERA last year. So when he is healthy, he gets to pitch. Pretty simple.
Are you talking hoops? Yeah, that's doable. Students and townies don't seem overly interested in most of those non-conference games, so why not try to make a buck and appease the alumni?
Yeah, the "fourth line" is not so bad if guys are also getting PK time, as Barbashev does.
I'm guessing the Cardinals have touched base with Boras on Harper, just as the front office has with every free agent of note. The thing is, it appears that teams in appealing markets seem willing to go 10 years, so he would be an idiotic do taking $100 million or more less in guaranteed money.
Well, thanks you Chris. I'd send you a fruit basket but I am all out.
There were a million issues there. The fact it worked for even one semester for Gordon at SLU was an achievement, given all the circumstances. The young basketball stars operate in an insane marketplace. Even the most well-grounded kids can get caught up in things -- and Carte'Are has already dealt with a lot in his young life. Let's hope this works out well for him.
I agree on both fronts. I would stay after the bullpen piece, perhaps via the trade route. And if the team can thin its utility player pile in a trade, then perhaps it can upgrade with a lefty hitter.
There is some truth to that assessment. But I as noted, the team has to find out which Fowler, Wong and Ozuna show up and what Bader really is. If the answers are disappointing, then one more impact hitter will be needed. Jose Martinez can clearly hit in the Top 5, but where can he field? DeJong might be a viable Top 5 hitter in the NL. And so on, to your point. As for the overall team success, I believe the team is banking on starting pitching depth and a much-improved bullpen more than a juggernaut offense.
Yeah, what kind of cosmic balance is that? Schenn doesn't have the same burst he had last year, so I wonder about a knee injury. Schwartz is still battling, but he is just missing a lot of plays instead of making them. O'Reilly and Perron have fared well and Thomas is coming on. Bozak has been just OK, but it's the incumbents that are killing this team.
