They carried him this far. Hard to imagine them dropping him now.
On paper, no. But paper goes out the window as September turns into October. Just about who's hot and who catches some good luck, and the Cardinals have been doing both at the right time. Nothing should surprise us now.
Let's see how 21 wraps up?
Have only heard good things about Buchnevich and already some of those things are clear on the ice. Big, skilled, hard-nosed. Could just be getting to the good part of his career at age 26. Can help on power play and penalty kill. Plays with an edge this team needed sharpened. I think you will be happy, even if Blais plays well, and hopefully he will.
Seems to be working out OK for him
Indeed. The North Siders were as dull as the Cards were sharp.
The horse is dead. This one killed it. RIP, horse.
Seems to me like he's trying to light a fire under a team that's flattened out a bit. Don't rule out Don Tony in the playoffs.
He's taken to second base well and DH will be in play, most likely.
No gushing here. Just a suggestion that only pointing to things he's done wrong doesn't create a very informative discussion or debate. Especially when everything he does right is described as "luck." Faulty logic. The good conversation is in the middle. Front office made good moves to help depleted pitching, but that doesn't change the fact the moves were made too late. A division was lost during the wait. Could a playoff run that lasts longer than the division winner's overpower that fact? I would think most would say yes. Can that happen? We'll know soon enough.
That's the Cardinals argument. That they could not have added pitching before they did. Too hard. Not realistic. I'm not buying that. Sorry.
He has said he's here to stay. He's getting exactly what he came for -- a chance to be in it. I know some won't be happy until he comes out and says it, and I'm sure he will at some point, but he's not opting out. Take it to the bank.
