O'Neill has gotten much better at tracking the ball, so this may not be a bad idea.. Also, if Nick Plummer can keep progressing as a hitter, he could be a left-side option who can play center field.
All I know about Horn is what I read in his Rivals and 247 Sports profiles. He sounds like a high upside guy, but who knows, right? Eli Drinkwitz has the sort of system that should attract high end QBs and WRs and that's just what he is doing. As for the current dilemma, Georgia is not the place to test the young QBs behind Bazelak unless there is no other choice. But after this week, playing Cook and Macon a bit to prepare for next season could make sense. The exposure to live action could help define their future. But where they really need to win over Drinkwitz is on the practice field and in the QB room.
Well, who else has any trade value and yet no sure spot on the team? It's hard to think of somebody who checks both boxes. There is no surplus of pitching and there was almost no offensive depth. Their top few position player prospects are in line for big league action next season. Their top pitching prospects are needed for near-term depth.
That is a worthy solution. Great idea!
You'll be guy in the Kasperi Kapanen sweater wearing Randy Arozarena-brand lucky boots.
True enough -- the Cardinals do not need a whole lot for 2022, based on the progress several players made down the stretch last season. They ended in a very good place.
Except that the Sabres are doomed to several additional years of rebuilding while Blues fans continue celebrating their Cup victory through CarShield commercials. And the Blues' competitive window remains open.
Independent analysts have ranked Gorman and Liberatore among the elite prospects MLB-wide. You will find them in various Top 100 lists. Nootbaar was not regarded an elite prospect, but he has hit at every level including the majors and now the Arizona Fall League.
He has seemed pretty happy and he has also said all the right things in interviews. He has handled his situation better than I could have ever imagined.
I don't have time to think about the whole "in order" thing here, but I was a student (and Antler) when the Willie Smith season went down. That was a crazy ride. Willie's game at Kansas State that year was epic. And the Doug Smith years were about as good as it gets from the talent side. Dr. Detroit got a nice return for his work.
For the right money, adding still more offensive insurance could work because those insurance guys could become trade chips if the kids are all right.
The short answer is no, absent another five or six years of good production.
I believe Kostin has done enough to stick with the team all year, but like we discussed on the Net Front Presence podcast Kostin could move in and out of the lineup if the team gets healthier.
Yes, I touched on this earlier. The Golden Knights could pull a Kucherov if it appears they can get into the bracket without activating Eichel.
He actually just tried a one-timer and it wasn't bad. I agree with Brett on the value of a one-timer. Look how it elevated David Perron's career. That weapon really pays off on the power play.
We'll write that one down. I like it.
Again, it depends on the price. The market could come back to the Cardinals on him because Story may have to address the issues raised in this chat to get bigger money.
