The Greek Freak is a show. Wouldn't it be fun to see Tatum and the Celtics in here to face the Bucks? That assumes that Boston doesn't trade Jayson, of course.
What did they hit last year, 25? And that's without a healthy Ozuna or a Goldschmidt. So sure.
At the Concrete Circle of Death? No.
No idea. Obviously they plan to lock in Mikolas, but Wacha's future depends on his health and how all those other hurlers perform.
Marwin Gonzalez? Yeah, that could work. Pop and versatility are good things. Ottavino has made himself into a solid high-leverage guy. One more of those would be most welcome.
If I had to wager on that, yes, I would bet we are going to see his swan song.
I expect the team to make a few additions. Since the goal should be 100 victories, that projection isn't inspiring.
The Blues are not concerned about Kostin's free agency clock. They want him to actually develop into a Top 6 NHL forward. He is a ways from that. He has yet to become an impact player in the AHL. First things first. Will he become a NHL regular or end up back in Russa?
I am not sure that would be the winning sales pitch.
Fowler shouldn't need the help. But, yes, Wong can take away some shallow flies for Martinez (if he is on the team) and Bader can help him in the gap. As for the right field line, he is on his own.
He never flashed big-time offensive potential, so he projected to be a third- or fourth-line guy. And right now that is where he still projects. I was a bit odd to see him on the power play.
Three or four weeks. If Fowler is killing the team, then Shildt owes it to the group to put his best lineup on the field. Fowler hasn't earned the sort of slack Carpenter got last season.
Jake can be an asset as a puck-mover when he is on his game, acting as an extra d-man to get the team back on offense. When he is on his game, he can control rebounds as well. But yes, when he lets goals bleed in or starts flopping around and overskating his angles, that impacts everybody else.
I am not sure what's up with Berglund, but it can't be good. He just vanished form the NHL scene.
Yeah, but there were extenuating circumstances there. In the case of Oates, it was just a contract beef. That made it worse.
He is in and out of the lineup and lot with injuries and I've never noticed much change in the team's temperament. I don't believe he is the reason almost every veteran on the team has played well below their established level this season.
That seems a little extreme.
I can't believe Tampa Bay has not locked in Jon Cooper for the long haul. He has enjoyed coaching success here before. That and a five-year, $35 million deal could convince him to come.
