The Cards pull up the sod every offseason. They've not said if they're adjusting the dimensions yet, at least not publicly. Just that they have had some conversations about the idea.
Need a few minutes. Gotta relocate. Be back in a few minutes.
I have to re-read it to make up the chat recap. So. Many. Typos.
Someone hasn't seen my truck. It's probably not worth what you would spend on gas to come get it!
Dexter Fowler and Matt Carpenter, before it became obvious to all that was not a good idea. I don't believe Shildt was consulted at all on the Carpenter extension.
He can be intensively intense. I think you will see it soon enough.
I don't think the sticky stuff resulted in Shildt's sticky situation with the front office. That has not come up at all in the conversations about what went down and how.
Shildt didn't give Carpenter the extension.
Nothing big that I'm aware of at the moment. NFL/Rams side successfully got Bob Blitz off the case for trial purposes so they can call him as witness, which surprised me. I think the STL side will try to get that reversed. If it stands, Blitz can still help but he won't be at the table for hearings, participating with depositions or making arguments during the trial. He would have to stick to behind-the-scenes work. Fortunately for the STL side, the previous work he's done -- like the depositions he's taken of multiple owners -- were not tossed out. Rams/NFL tried to get them tossed but failed.
Projecting what a Tigers team mostly full of transfers is going to do is pretty hard. I'm hoping to make a trip to Columbia next week to get a chance to watch a practice. So much of their season is going to depend on how guys who have not played together before figure it out. One thing to keep in mind when placing Martin on the hot seat: his new boss. He's close with Desiree Reed-Francois and helped hire him at Tennessee. Sometimes a new AD arrives itching to make a hire in a revenue sport. I don't think that's the case with her and basketball. I think Martin's job is relatively secure.
Peeps are the worst food item ever invented. I will die on this hill!
He should write a book. Unless he's getting some serious hush money, of course.
My hope is baseball has enough smart folks on both sides to realize just how bad a mangled or shortened season would be for the sport, for both sides. So, I'm hopeful. But I'm not booking a spring training condo just yet.
