It would take a staggering sum to extend Flaherty. Let's see if the next CBA gets him to free agency quicker. Let's see if the next CBA eliminates draft pick compensation for lost free agents. If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then the Cardinals will face quite the dilemma. They could end up using him as a rental until he hits the market and bolts as a free agent.
I'm not sure the players want to play that game again.
Hey, Panger looked pretty good in those Car Shield commercials. Got square to the shooters.
Right now he has zero cap flexibility. So while I would not expect a huge trade, I could see subtracting from the forward surplus to add a defensive defenseman. But at the rate guys are getting hurt or missing time with COVID-19 protocols, it's hard to imagine what the roster might look like around the deadline. And what if the team is rolling then?
Edman could land in a super-utility role. Edmundo Sosa played well as a starter last season and earned a shot at that assignment if Paul DeJong does not magically regain his 2017 form.
Like I said earlier, I'm guessing he still gets his Cardinals money. But you can ask Derrick or The Commish that.
I believe that is a fair assessment of the defensive corps. Mikkola's emergence has bee huge because Scandella was really getting exposed out there.
This is a fair point. Martin has tried to make offensive changes and create more pace, but he and his staff have not made much progress. If the school makes a change, finding a coach with an attractive playing style will be part of the criteria.
Dr. Detroit did a nice job working the street agents back in the day. Of course, such operations had to be properly funded. The P-D did some stories on the murky recruiting back in the day, so the paper was no friend to the program.
MLB has not shown much of a PR touch so far. Baseball is only hurting itself right now. And you are right, there is a deal to be made that can address the shortchanging of young players under the current rules. The industry can afford to funnel more money to those guys to make sure players are getting a fair cut of the revenue.
Missouri needs to get the average fans back in the stands. The big boosters can only do so much for the program. The team needs to build a real SEC atmosphere to have any chance in this league.
Scandella is the odd man out of the mix if everyone is healthy, since Walman is a still-developing talent. But the Blues aren't terribly deep beyond their top eight, so that may inspire Armstrong to keep everyone.
He's not that bad, but, yes, at this stage of his career he is a bottom six forward. Still has some value though.
That's an excellent point. Little by little, the school used up what used to be a massive parking lot. Even parking for basketball games is a big hassle if you don't have a season pass.
OK, that looks like it for this week. Have a good weekend and stay safe in this holiday season.
