I imagine his are still barking at him during the season.
We'll field the occasional off-topic question to break things up a bit.
Actually, some coaches are warming up to college athlete unions as a more sane alternative to the unregulated free-for-all currently in place. I'm with you in the deep end on this one, for the sake of the coaches.
Maybe one more piece, a minor one. But that seems realistic.
That depends on other things, of course, but he could be a No. 7/No.8 hitter. Ideally he would be No. 8, which means you found other answers too.
Even Prince Edward Island?
Most of these prospects discussed in trades seem certain to play in the majors, anyway. But, yeah, you would rather trade a Luke Weaver than a Sandy Alcantara.
Getting a cost-neutral catcher would allow more spending on an outfielder. We mentioned earlier than Haniger was getting projected at three years and $45 million. That's what the middle tier looks like. There could also be a trade that moves some salary and gets some salary. So I don't have a guess.
I do not have an idea on that. But I do like giving players freedom as long as the scholarships are just for one year -- since schools haven't been shy about pulling scholarships if a player didn't pan out.
I don't have time to look that up. But he did coach in an era of conference divisions and he did win those.
I'm not sure any of those guys will ever fit the bill for what you are looking for there. Having a consistently great OBP guy ahead of those hitters would be great, but those guys have been increasingly hard to find.
What has he pitched, 48 1/3 innings in two years? And he has $44 million coming to him the next two seasons? Man, that's a lot of money Boston would have to eat, even if the latest medical reports on him offered some hope.
Molina was a great athlete. You don't catch all of those games unless you are a great athlete.
One of my favorite sports people, former NHL coach and executive Doug MacLean came from the island. He's a beauty. If all the citizens are like him, the Island must be fun.
Nootbaar's glove gives him a high floor. Burleson has power, but he isn't much of a fielder and the Cardinals have several young hitters with power and suspect gloves, They can trade one of them, anyway.
Ah, driving my old '72 Buick LeSabre listening to songs off the Rumours album. Good times.
Or the, "Hey did Steven Matz just step on a landmine trying to cover first base" slot.
True, but let's not remember him that way. Let's remember the good times.
Is that Bryan Harsin on line 3?
OK, gotta run. It's been real. Good job today folks. See you next week. Stay well.
OK. one more comment: The Cardinals are built on pitching and defense. Burleson has worked hard to improve and maybe will earn a long-term role here. But if he does get traded, his fielding will be a factor.
Now go have a nice weekend!
