I would like to see Matt Holliday back, too. And, thank you.
You would hope that that wasn't the only reason.
There will be from now on. Derrick is in place at Philadelphia and then would move on to Houston and there will be a special on-line piece for you every morning after.
There does seem to be a pattern, not a good one.
Danny Jansen, who has home-run power, could be available. He had 15 homers in 215 at-bats this season but he's thrown out only 25 % of opposing base stealers in his career and I don't know much about the rest of his catching portfolio.
That's one of the reasons why you would bring in another starter who would be here until at least through the 2024 season.
Pujols is a no doubter, for me. Arenado and Rolen would have a hard decision to make, especially with Rolen having played one more year with the Phillies and Arenado will be about even with Rockies and Cardinals.
They likely would ask for two pitchers, one of them big-league ready, and a young position player.
The Phillies' success, more than anything else, likely has more to do with the Cardinals' offense not showing up in the series here. The Phillies didn't do anything offensively either but the Cardinals gave them the first game of the series. The Phillies had a total of nine hits in two games and Schwarber didn't even get on base. This Phillies club is not a dynasty in the making, by any means.
Teams generally seek insurance for high-priced players, based on their history of a particular injury, but that doesn't cover another injury that might occur. Depending on the policy and the injury, teams can get back a certain percentage of their investment in a player for a season. But these are not inexpensive policies either.
That would be Jose Oquendo, who was the Brendan Donovan of his day.
Knizner has caught Wainwright many times in his brief career and in minor league rehab starts, too. But, a whole season without Molina? Don't know how that might affect Waino.
Winn is programmed as a shortstop, although he is playing some second base in the Arizona Fall League. I hadn't heard his name mentioned as an outfield candidate.
I am planning on going to spring training to do some writing of some sort for somebody.
He will not be paid while on suspension into 2024.
You would see what it costs but anything more than three years is a big reach.
I like left-handed-hitting Jesse Winker very much. At least I liked him in Cincinnati. Not so much in Seattle this year.
There is no one formula, as you put it so well. Teams often float many players just to see what the reactions might be.
Now, that mound visit would be something. I would think Yadi would pick his spots. Very carefully.
