There is danger for the Rams if they get truly awful again, as they did here. That's a big stadium with some big overhead.
I'd like to see what lessons he learned from the epic Padres collapse and how he applies them on this job. That could not have been a pleasant thing to go through. I am sure he has a comfort level with Wainwright and Molina leading the clubhouse and I'm guessing he will try to add to that vibe.
There is money to be made in sports gambling. At some point enough people in Jeff City will figure that out.
Martin won 50 games his last two years at Missouri State. He went to Sweet 16 his last year at Tennessee. He won 44 games in his last two years at Cal. Don't see much slow fizzle there.
Under your scenario, the Cardinals would compromise their fielding for up to a quarter of their games.
Like it or not, the Cardinals got a whole lot better down the stretch. And like it or not, they are well-positioned to build on that.
Ivan needs to take a big step in the minors first. If he does that, he will get his chance. The tools are there.
Any player that abused amphetamines gained an edge through science, such as that was. I see that in the same category as Andro, HGH and everything else that came down the line.
Only a moron could have possibly believed those guys weren't juicing.
He's not getting an extension after that season. And that whole argument -- coaches can only recruit if they are under long-term contract -- was wiped out by the transfer portal and NIL dollars. It's a year-to-year business now.
I have no earthly idea what Mozeliak is pondering these days.
Well, on the interwebs they tell us this is a bad idea, but . . .
Could they pull a Chris Carpenter? Maybe, but they have tended to let their own Tommy John cases walk rather than sign them for future use. I'm not sure they want to burden future payrolls right now.
No, Rich was not Steve's dad. DeSmet had already sent players to Mizzou so there was love there. And Jon Sundvold and he kind made a pact to go there and I think that was a bigger deal.
Yes, but that's two more than Kim Anderson.
But not his father, so he wasn't living off of dad's large coaching salary.
Yeah, well, we all make choices.
That's it for this time. See you next week. Be safe!
