Thompson has surpassed Liberatore in that he's here and Liberatore is not. Thompson could be a rotation pitcher and probably will be some day soon but he can help more in the bullpen now. The Cardinals' left-handed relief is a bit sketchy, with Cabrera having gone backwards.
Almost no chance. Everybody is always searching for more pitching. Also, Quintana is a free agent and may not be back.
Yes, but he barely could walk when he was here, let alone play. The Cardinals are 33-13 since the Bader-Montgomery trade was made.
There were only three mentioned in the headline. All teams have seven players and one taxi-squad player.
O'Neill, as a second-time arbitration player, is going to cost $5 million or more to keep. And the meter is ticking because he has trouble playing a whole season. There is a lot of talent there--power, speed, great defender--but O'Neill just hasn't played often enough. He hasn't even been in 100 games this year.
Who wouldn't want Mike Trout? But what would it take? I do not see Ohtani coming here, however.
I don't know how to operate a stop watch.
I don't fly on the team plane but I don't think bat boys/girls fly with them any more.
I didn't say change it in the late innings. I think the umpires could be offered a little latitude in enforcing it. Football teams have timeouts to deal with clock management.
I'd be astonished if some entrepreneur hasn't seized the moment.
The good defenders take extra work in the field if they aren't playing enough to stay ready.
I would expect the fan to bring it to Pujols and see what kind of deal can be constructed that could benefit both sides.
I'm just telling you what the manager has in mind for the next week or so. Don't shoot the messenger. I'm trying to provide a public service.
I believe teams still have to have at least 13 pitchers. But I'll try to check that out. ;.
If you're looking to sign a shortstop to a long-term deal, you have to factor in when Winn would be arriving. If you think he's only another year or less away, that surely would give you pause.
Judge is playing in the perfect park now. He can hit the ball off the end of the bat and have it go out to right field in Yankee Stadium.
Unless the rules change, yes.
I have not see Walker play at all since spring training. Outfield is his future, though, and it's clear he has a strong arm. But he won't be in the major leagues because of his arm.
