All I can tell you is that the Cardinals are confident that Sierra can benefit from more seasoning at Class AA Springfield. He'll be back soon if he remains healthy, I'm sure.
It is all about the standards the veterans set. Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio established a culture that was followed by the next generation of leaders. I don't know how the culture was established in recent years by Albert Pujols and Matt Holliday in terms of media relations.
I don't know what that means. I still haven't figured out how much responsibility - blame - Woodcook deserves for what has to be one of the worst PR jobs I've ever seen from folks trying to sell soccer.
I was stunned by Carpenter's explanation. It all but helped make the point that i was trying to make about him in my column.
Neither. I've lost all confidence in this city getting an MLS franchise. The NFL is never coming back, and I don't think this city is big enough to support an NBA team.
I haven't been around here long enough to offer a scouting report on the local sports media. All I can tell you is that big cities like New York, Los Angeles and Houston don't expect their media to be buddies with the players.
I don't think other leagues need to adopt the NBA's lottery.
I promise you the Cardinals will be in the playoffs.
Oh my. I think they'll make the playoffs, but they're not going to win 93 games unless they make some major trades that I don't see happening.
I think he was available. I didn't hear otherwise.
I wouldn't say it's a lack of a baseball IQ as much as a lack of commitment to baseball fundamentals at times.
I've addressed the team's poor defense a few times already this season. I wouldn't disagree with you.
I don't think the wild-card field is very strong this year, considering the Mets and Giants have had serious health issues.
That was a good deal for the local owners.
I don't see that happening. Every person in Mozeliak and Bill DeWitt Jr.'s position would have extended Molina. He deserved the deal.
You have to realize that they must manage the roster and budget.
I'm pretty active in my kids' lives. Moreover, I have to focus more on my column because I'm relatively new to column writing and, quite honestly, still finding my way as a columnist. I had a baseball show in Houston for a while. I loved it, but I still owe it to myself and the Post-Dispatch to improve much more as a columnist before I try to take on something else. As Rick Hummel, Derrick Goold, Jeremy Rutherford and Tom Timmermann will tell you, there are still days when the deadline hits me and I think my column wasn't nearly good enough. Let me figure out how to be consistently good in column writing before I prove to be a rookie on radio too. With all that said, thank you for believing in me.
He had a real good spell in between his two poor ones.
I'd stick with Grichuk for the rest of the season.
