Upon further review, leaving DeJong in the minors until he actually started hitting well at that level would have been prudent.
Previous success as an assistant hitting coach and prior success as a minor league instructor.
The owners and front office types are well aware of the team's poor level of play.
Hmmmm . . . worse than the Pirates?
Yeah, maybe the umpires should feel sorry for the Cardinals and take some adhesives to the mound.
Those pitching solutions, as well-thought out as they are, don't sound super promising. But that's what we're left with, right?
I would not be surprised if shoes started dropping at any point. I'm surpised we've gotten this far without a major change of some kind.
At some point we may see teams value what they see on the field instead of what their spreadsheet tells them. At some point we may see the sport go back to managing humans with instinctive moves, not with a computer-generated script. That would be a good day indeed.
Add more talent. Robert Thomas can create space for himself. He has tremendous playmaking instincts. He needs to apply them better. And the Blues need to add more guys like him.
Well, we have to share a chuckle in these hard times, right?
Why would the Panthers want Tarasenko with his bad shoulder and a $7.5 million cap hit coming off an ineffective finish to the season?
I do think they care. They have reached a point of exasperation. It appears the collective weight of failure has taken the toll.
I don't believe Mike Shildt has a lifetime contract. John Mozeliak does have job security, based on past success and the potential that's evident for 2022 and beyond.
Yes, something will happen. If there is a big development, I'd expect it on the trade front since the team is salary capped out. Doug has made some amazing trades that were so lopsided that predicting them was impossible.
It's just business, Sonny. That company has a massive amount of money invested in rights fees. And as we knows, it's been a lemon of a year.
Yeah, that was old school. I remember when something like that was just another Tuesday in the NHL. The old buildig were steep, making that toss to the ice an easy one.
