The Kroenkes will collect something like $7 million to $9 million per year with this deal from a company that is pushing recycleable alumimum cups. So they are really to Ball all night.
And the Cardinals have done very well with Molina's game management skills. He is a big reason why this team has maintained its winning culture through personnel upheaval and managerial changes.
The Zags may lose a game in there somewhere, but they will enter the NCAA Tournament as the top seed and overwhelming favorite. Their mix of talent and experieince is impressive. This is one of the best teams in recent times.
Rolen, hands down. He would add huge fielding and run-produciton upgrades. Edmonds would add much run production, but his fielding upgrade would not be as great.
I am old! I saw Wilt vs. Russell in the 60s, then the Big Dipper in his later days in a more limited role with the Lakers. I loved those Lakers teams as a kid.
Come 2022, I could see this team having more pitching to move. Also, it will have a better idea on its hitting prospects. And it will have more payroll flexibility. All three factors will be valuable.
I am opposed. The game evolves. Make hitters evolve. Hit to all fields. Bunt. Value bat control over launch angle. Hitters are capable of adapting if baseball makes them do it.
Players on two-way contracts get their AHL money while on the taxi squad. If they move up to active duty, then they get NHL dollars.
Well, Missouri has been nationally ranked for several weeks now. So far this season they have not been mediocre. To finish the job this season, Mark Smith and Dru Smith needs to play well. Mark has to quit turning the ball over and passing up good shots to take bad ones. Dru needs to quit taking those reaching fouls and the obvious charges. These Tigers have a NCAA berth in them if they clean up thise things and a few others. The 2021 recruiting class has some long-range promise, but Cuonzo Martin will need to add a couple of high-impact transfers for next season to avoid another big dropoff.
Bednar got picked because Colorado is the flavor of the year. People assume the Avs will win the Cup and Bednar will get credit for leading them out of the abyss they were in a few seasons back.
Gardner at his age is not exciting at all. He turns 38 this season. Tyler O'Neill became an excellent defender and I'd rather give him the at bats during an interim season. And the Cardinals have two switch-hitters set to get regular at bats this year, so the platoon angle doesn't resonate with me.
That team was loaded, with Moon McCrary, Prince Bridges and Michael Walker adding plenty of support and Greg Cavener grabbing a few freshman minutes behind Stip. I am partial to the 1975-76 team that won the Big Egiht and reached the Elite Eight with Willie Smith, Kim Anderson and Jim Kennedy. Then there was the 1993-94 that got destroyed at Arkansas to start the season, then went 14-0 in the Big 12 thanks to the magical arrival of Paul O'Liney. That team reached the Elite Eight, but earned a NCAA asterisk for some, um, aggressive recruiting.
Ah, the Golden Days of KMOX. I got in that mix for a while with some Saturday appearances. Doing Sports Open Line with Joe Buck is up there with the career highlights.
Yeah, and while I appreciate the company for producing environmentally friendly products, I'm not sure that it is a classic candidate for naming rights.
Such is the burden of coaching a team that has already been there and done that.
OK, that looks like that's it for today. See everybody next time!
