I don't fret much about germs, but can you imagine how much cleaning that Cup requires?
Well, the team already did that by removing seats in favor of a party plaza. And we could see more of that. Newer parks are more intimate and that trend will continue.
I have spent the same amount of time on that as I have on comeback players -- which is to say zero. I am happy for Albert and I hope gets all the milestones he covets before he gets to 50.
I wouldn't got that far, but I'm shocked -- SHOCKED! - that there were more shenanigans in horse racing.
He's very athletic and scoops almost everything. And if you had to compare them today, I bet he is a way better fielder than Hernandez.
I should be there Sunday.
I think we'd see 30 fatalities in Year 1 of that experiment.
I will pump the brakes on Carlson as I did on Edman when he tore up spring training this year. Let's see Carlson get some extended time at Memphis next season before putting that on him. This team has a million outfielders, it can afford to be patient.
This is America. This kids are being exploited. It is a very big can of worms, but something that will come to a head at some point. College sports are so big we can't pretend that these are just students.
As noted earlier, Maddon didn't get a new contract for a reason. He was on the bubble coming into this season. And that bubble could burst.
The team would have to make that contract a bit more team friendly. So much will depend on Yadier's production next season. He is a super proud guy and the team must take care not to insult him.
The Cards finally had a lull after a remarkable run. Yes, the clutch hitting has been an issue this season. But as I noted earlier, let's see what happens this weekend before writing the team off.
Sure, but he will need to rack up some real numbers during the course of his Cardinals contract. If he can resume posting a .900 OPS year after year then he will have a case.
Jon Lester is getting old.
Yes, well, the Pirates are no good.
OK, that's it for this week. Good times! I'll be back in two weeks for another chat.
