He will have largely the same team back next season. How the team fares next season will have an impact on re-signings. First things first. There is Game 6 and, if needed, Game 7.
So far that call is holding.
Well, that's a bit harsh. The Bruins have won a lot of games with him in the lineup this season. This is not a speed series, this is a grinding series.
Why would Philadelphia trade for Fowler and even 50 percent of that contract? I don't see it. That sort of protection (middling batting average, not much power) is easy to find. At least Jay Bruce can hit some homers for them.
True enough. Is Cassidy putting his team into a victim's mindset? If so, is that a good idea? We'll see.
I don't believe he came that close. To trade major players he needed major offers. Those big offers come closer to the deadline and by then the Blues were rolling.
Boy, it won't be the same there without him. I admire his willingness to battle through and finish the year.
This team does run more and run better. Kolten Wong is 10 for 10 in stolen bases and we see more guys in motion. It doesn't always work, but Mike Shildt is making this team less stationary.
Those titles are scattered over many decades and two of the leagues are long gone -- as is any claim St. Louis has for being an elite sports city. It is a very good sports market for its size, but that's it.
In fairness to Miles, he left this game due to injury. But he's looked more like a No. 4 or No. 5 starter this season, like most of his colleagues. That whole five No. 1 starters thing was good for a laugh at the time, but I don't know how many people took it seriously.
Apparently he didn't know ahead of time to get a bet in. Otherwise he would have owned the bus company he was driving for.
I assume that's the case anywhere stadium personnel are located in the field of play. Like you say, the guard kills the play if he tries to go all Kenny Reitz out there. But if it hits him, it's like it hit an umpire -- just part of the field.
He is not quite as important as Sunny, but he is a big part of the fourth line becoming more of a shutdown checking line. It will be interesting to see what Berube does to keep Sundqvist and Alexander Steen prominent. Who plays with those two?
Again, Blues fans know better than to get cocky.
Again, let's take this one shift at a time.
That can work two ways. Berube doesn't want his guys getting too jacked up, so he may prefer to just drop the puck and get to work. He thought they were too jacked up in Game 3.
Come on, he is better shape than that.
