The Cardinals invested big in both Goldschmidt and Arenado. For the right player I imagine they do that again, especially since Wainwright's contract -- deemed way too large by chatters -- comes off the books after this year.
I'm not surprised. He has such a strong all-around game, that's a good fit for the Association.
The college football landscape is way different than just a year ago. The bet is that Drinkwitz can translate his breakthrough success in recruiting to success in the transfer portal and better luck in games. But the hard reality is that just winning seven games a year in the new SEC is going to be a chore at Missouri.
That trade was a disaster for sure, but the team has done a nice job of managing assets since then and this franchise is hardly in a state of emergency right now. It has a few needs like every year, but the organization-wide success in 2022 sets the Cardinals up well.
Blast from the past! I can't remember the last time I saw him.
It looks like he will get a lot of years in the market. And while he would be a fielding fit, would he move the needle offensively? This team needs more pop.
As Doug Armstrong would say, the Blues in the bottom levels in the NHL in everything. Alarming to say the least.
If those guys were centerfielders the Cardinals might swim in those waters. But they have a Gold Glove shortstop currently and an elite shortstop prospect in development, so that position is not a high priority.
The Blues were 6-6-3 on Nov. 11, 2018.
The Cardinals need more depth in the offense and catcher is obvious spot to add that.
Fair enough. Is Tyler O'Neill listening? That's one place to start.
That's a very strong offer for Murphy. A bit rich, but it also keeps Graceffo out of the equation.
I am not sure of that committee's makeup. Maybe it will include players who are shocked -- shocked! -- that a high-end athlete could possibly seek some sort of chemical edge. But I agree that there's a chance that the committee will take a different view than the ball writers.
I would bet on Mike Shildt, since he never actually failed. What happened with Mike Matheny in KC was unfortunate.
Contreras did get a qualifying offer and MLB still has compensation required for signing free agents who rejected their QO.
Right. I mean, his arbitration number will not be large. Just look at what Mitch Haniger will get in free agency coming off his injury-ruined year.
Agreed. Both kids are wild cards, but they both have crazy power. I will be eager to see if Nolan Gorman can make the necessary adjustments this winter. Once opponents figured out how to exploit his holes, it got ugly.
Bedard is considered a generational talent. Teams will be really, really interested in the next draft lottery.
Kiffin beating Saban . . . oh my, that could get ugly for Nick.
