Never reject anything. There are things to like about Gallo although strikeouts are not one of them.
For one thing, depending on how he does this year and his interest level in staying, I might want to try to sign Flaherty to a long-term deal.
It was very noticed that Arenado was very much in the middle of things. He already had blended into clubhouse chemistry but this was one more manifestation thereof.
Even if there is a DH in the NL next year, I don't think it's a wise move to expect 40-plus Albert Pujols to be the type of hitter you remembered him being. And that might alter your memories of him from the first time around.
Dick was one, as well as sports editor Bob Broeg and other veterans at the P-D. On a national level, Dick Young, Jim Murray, Red Smith and others treated me with more respect than I probably deserved at the time.
But C. Carp didn't stand over his vanquished foe and let him know about it.
I wouldn't be surprised if Carp turns up at second and Edman in the outfield sometime in this series.
Derrick certainly has all the attributes to be on that track. Perhaps Mike's 50th year in the booth and his imminent retirement from broadcasting will spark more interest is his candidacy for an honor he should have had before now.
Thanks very much. Dean, I'm sure will play tonight. Shildt will try other options, including Williams, after a day or so off. Bader won't be that far away either.
If players are brought up from taxi squad, they will have to be supplanted by others optioned or outrighted to Memphis. I believe the 10-day option rule would be in effect, but will check.
The Cardinals, you may remember, had Peralta as a pitcher in their system many years ago. That didn't work out, but I would take him.
I'm sure they looked at all three in various fashion. But they were committed to trying their own outfielders, after the Arozarena snafu. Besides, they got Arenado. Who would you rather have?
Before I pass final judgment on the outfield, I want to see what it was supposed to be with O'Neill in left, Bader in center and Carlson in right. Until then, the Cardinals are just trying to hold it together as best they can.
The announcers, radio or television, haven't been cleared to travel yet because of COVID considerations. And you're welcome.
Sometimes, they throw harder--or try to, anyway, or try to snap off the perfect breaking pitch to the perfect location. But yes, it probably is as much mental stress as anything.
In three days, they could be 3-3 or 4-2, all on the road.
Perhaps the Nationals might fall out of the race in the second half of the season and Scherzer might be available. I bet St. Louis isn't on his don't-send-me-there list. And, thank you very much.
