Interesting guy for sure. He is one of the reasons why Cardinals management didn't want to add another veteran to the pitching pile. This team does have quantity. Let's see if it becomes quality.
No. Mizzou will work to get the ban lifted. This process shouldn't take years.
Ford has had about half the players he expected to have the last two seasons. His attrition rate has been staggering between the injuries, off-court issues and guys leaving. That he has won as many games as he has with some little depth is amazing.
It will take a while to get to that point. Maybe 10 years down the line the franchise will have to slow the induction rate.
I didn't see much Frank Robinson in his prime. Even though I am old, there weren't many national TV games in his heyday and I mostly just watched the Tigers. I dealt with him more as a manager and he was a classic old school guy. His performance speaks for himself and few of us can really appreciate what he had to endure to have that career.
No. This city has really wealthy people who want a team. That is a good thing in any sport. In the case of the MLS, some franchise movement will be inevitable.
Bozak should be a No. 3 center on this team, behind Thomas. That leaves Sunny in the No. 4 spot where he can flourish.
Get an extremely rich person dedicated to bringing a team to St. Louis. Leagues can pretend to restrict franchise movement, but extremely wealthy people with very good lawyers ultimately decide these things.
There is no need to do something crazy, like changing the field dimensions in any way. The game evolves. Lately it evolved into its Launch Angle Era. With some minor adjustments, it can get through this period.
Dying is a strong word, given the staggering revenues the sport generates and the soaring franchise values.
I can't imagine why they would do that either. They do not need to woo people on this side of the state.
Yes. Football, with all the concussion issues, could be another matter.
Am I supposed to pick the Bucks because I dissed them earlier? Boston is just the No. 4 need now, but I still love Brad Stevens as a coach.
The Cardinals win their 14th world title.
Yes, they will eventually sign. I figure Machado goes first. Harper may drag this into the exhibition season.
What better way? Show alternative entertainment while some guy stands on the mound, Kip Wells-like, agonizing over every single pitch? Pace! We need more pace!
