The Carpenter, Fowler, Martinez and Miller money can all be put to better use next season.
Rough night for the skipper.
Well, the front office landed Nolan Arenado. He's pretty good.
I do not expect to see Arenado sink below the Mendoza Line while also serving as a defensive liability in the field. So that is not a great comparison.
In his afternoon nap nightmare, he probably did.
Maybe, but Nolan Gorman is widely regarded as the best second base prospect in the minors with a '22 arrival.
He has more to give IF he stays healthy and IF he takes better at bats with RISP. He looks a bit jumpy with men on base.
It has come in streaks. Hence the need for a four-OF rotation next season to get better matchups.
The 2019 team was exciting down the stretch, rallying to win the division with lots of power. Beating the Atlanta Braves in the playoffs again was fun for fans. The Cardinals hit a buzzsaw with the Nationals in the NLCS, but they were in the Final Four.
It would be a great story, yes.
This is St. Louis. Albert could still get his statue.
Feel free to apply. Let me know how it goes.
Injuries are factors. Fans can pretend they aren't, but they are. Lots of MLB teams are feeling that pain this season.
What do you have against Calgary? Geesh.
This assumes the organization won't add more pitching. I bet it does.
I suppose he could warm up a guy behind Cabrera every time he pitches so he can get the three-batter hook if need be. But that would send a signal that the manager does not trust him.
This organization is headed toward an interesting review. Everything will be on the table, from training to tactics. I earlier suggested a six-man rotation as mandatory, along with an interchangeable six-man bullpen of high-leverage relievers. They can toss in one long reliever for good measure. And other than the backup catcher, all position players should be of everyday quality and used in rotation.
I suppose, but would he give back all of those farewell gifts he will receive at ballparks?
