McGwire already has been the hitting coach and he likes it in California. Edmonds wouldn't enjoy the tremendous workload and time the coaches have to put in. And is there something you don't like about the offense right now? This is the best recently that it's been in years.
This is not my department, of course, and if there were no advertising, there would be no newspaper. That is all I can tell you.
Let's say he gets two more wins this year. Next year, he would need 15--a tall ask even for someone who is 6-7.
I don't have the answer to that. He still is in the minor league camp in Jupiter, Florida and has appeared in a handful of games this year.
There used to be a ball park like that somewhere. Stanley Frank Musial, I believe, played a game or two there.
Those kinds of players would come here only if they knew they were going to be either regular outfielders or, in Schwarber's case, more or less regular designated hitters.
He wouldn't be a starter for the Cardinals. That reboot, if it happened, would begin in the minors.
He has 14 games left. I think he'll make it.
He had thrown 75 pitches and wasn't exactly dazzling anybody, allowing four hits and a walk in his final two innings.
The Cardinals could have as many as 11 relievers on their roster for the wild-card game because you don't need all your starting pitchers for one game. You need only two starters really, plus Woodford/Kim/Flaherty in reserve. So many of the names you mention will make it. If the Cardinals would get to the next round, a three-of-five affair, the roster configuration would be more as it is now, with the additions possibly of Flaherty and Hudson and two corresponding pitching subtractions.
Occasionally, he has tried to bunt. But Carpenter hasn't tried that often enough, probably.
Yes, Mo would be considered sort of a "dry humor" guy.
Anybody on a big-league injured list gets service time credit.
I'm OK with that. He used to be a pitcher in the system.
I don't think Edman would be as good a player in the outfield as he is in the infield. I'm OK with Bader in center.
The two teams would play a one-game playoff. It would be played at the home field of whichever team had the best record in the season series. Then the loser would be the first wild-card team.
Ponce didn't help himself with three walks the other night or his dustup with Molina. But the real reason is that the Cardinals will need to make room for Flaherty and/or Hudson and Waddell almost surely will be one of those to go.
