I couldn't address this because I don't know that your premise is valid.
The Cardinals are a team full of second basemen. Diaz would probably be better suited for second, as would Wong, DeJong, Gyorko, Garcia and perhaps even Carpenter.
Watching the Cardinals is an experience. It's not just a baseball game. It's similar to what the Cubs built at Wrigley Field, where fans showed up for the experience and didn't mind being Lovable Losers. This is a proud baseball town with a reach deep through the Midwest. Those fans in small towns throughout Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa and Illinois will keep showing up to games because it's an experience.
I'll pass along your message.
I won't address your question because I think you are out of line calling Maloney a miscreant.
I assume a release and unless they trade him and pick up his salary in exchange for a low-level prospect.
I don't think Oquendo is a possibility.
Bill DeWitt's ownership has been a model of professionalism and winning baseball. I think St. Louis fans are spoiled and don't realize how fortunate they have been. Moreover, DeWitt and his top front office officials were cleared in the hacking scandal.
I don't think they'd be willing to do it.
Nobody is going to trade the farm for Carpenter. Nobody even suggested that someone would.
I think Mexico will beat the U.S. The game is at Azteca, and it's rare for Mexico to lose there. I covered the last World Cup qualifier there in 2013 when the U.S. escaped with a rare tie.
What a bombshell. I wonder what happened. Stoops has been one of the great coaches of his lifetime. He took a lot of kids out of Texas and consistently dominated. I wonder if there's something more to this story.
As long as they stop messing with Carlos Vela, they are good enough to make a run. I think they'll win it all in my lifetime.
I wouldn't trade Oh. I'd re-sign him.
He was a great coach, one of the best of his era. He dominated the Big 12. He should have won more national titles, though.
Thank you very much. I'm very grateful to work for the best executive editor in America, Gilbert Bailon, and amazing sports editors.
I don't know. I'm against public funding, as you surely know. But we have many cheerleaders in this town who are eager to give away the city's money. I still cannot believe that folks didn't learn from the bad deal the city and county made with the Rams. I love sports, but I care about schools and public safety even more.
