Right now, it's a tornado watch. If it gets to warning, it's time to get the dog, laptop, wallet and safe box to the lower level. If there's time, I'll look for the cats as well -- but they tend to be two steps ahead on everything.
Cargo shorts, the fan's preferred action wear for the big game.
Well, you're back on the Kapanen bandwagon. It's been awhile. to me, Kasperi is a tweener -- second or third line guy -- but a useful plug-and-play guy for a team in transition. Also, a friendly guy. The media has come to appreciate him.
Year, the red was bad enough on those Jack in the Box crew uniform sweaters from back in the day. The red reverse retro -- yikes!
Back in the 70s I believe the outfield corner GA seats for $5 in Kansas City. Real fans lined up for those.
I don't know that any of these guys are likely to go at this time. Krug's is a really good power-play quarterback and he might appeal to a team that somehow has ended up without one.
Self-belief and willingness to tackle challenges have never been an issue for him.
Yes, he has to prove his durability. But he is early in his earning years and he lacks leverage, so the Blues will likely ride him for at least one more contract.
Kuznetsov's play this season has been, um, uninspired. No thanks.
This was a familiar topic even before the Contreras injury. There were not and there are not many compelling back-up catcher options. The guys who can hit a little bit tend not to be great at catching and the guys who can catch and frame pitches tend not to hit. Tres Barrera was making a pitch for Knizner's job when he got hurt. Ideally, Ivan Herrera would have arrived this season as the Next Man Up.
I'll say under for SLU, even for Illini and over for SLU.
Good ideas all. That is how to contribute to the chat.
OK, what if it was Adam Wainwright/Peyton Manning and they sat for autographs? Not saying they would ever do that, but it's a thought.
Jordan Walker is the best hitting prospect the Cardinals have had since Albert Pujols, so he is going to get some run. Right now Carlson's job is to take at-bats away from Nootbaar and O'Neill.
I'm trying not to show him much love this week, but the man is persistent.
Although, at some point some team will put some in and then charge fans a premium for peering in.
Also-rans playing out the string . . . yep, it's exhibition hockey.
Walker didn't jump over Yepez, he flew over him. Both Yepez and Burleson have limited outfield skills but the ability to play first base. For now, Burleson's lefty bat won out.
Yes, well, dropping third-strike fastball yesterday didn't help things.
It's quite possible the Cardinals will struggle this month due to the schedule. But we've been down this road before with this team. This team has a lot of potential to make upgrades on the fly this year.
