I know O'Neill will get back in there against Miley Saturday, but come on. Starting Carpenter yet again is senseless.
I'm sure that suggestion is made from time to time.
Carpenter still in the lineup today, even with O'Neill back. So the crypt is not sealed.
It was an offhand remark and he addressed that the next day. That seems about right.
The team always makes adjustments on the fly. Some years the needs are greater than others. Sometimes that comes more internally, sometimes more externally like in 2018 when they made trades to fortify their bullpen on the fly.
And they are three games out of first place.
One step at a time. Let's see if he an last at the bottom of the order before moving him up.
He is just one guy, but he may epitomize the way the Blues played when they won the Cup.
In the United States? I don't think so.
Has it? If Max is not re-signing there, the Nationals will look for young pitching for a rental trade.
He just needs to play. Period. Or else the team must concede he can't play and immediately seek a left fielder.
I'm not aware of any Cardinals hitters drastically changing their style after leaving here. Arozarena added a bunch of muscle. I'm not sure of anything else.
Whew! That was a workout. We'll see you next week. Let's hope folks can turn those frowns upside down!
