Tuivailala just needs to take advantage of his times up in the majors and string together several quality starts in a row.
It is normal for local TV crews to travel with the teams. I thought Price came off as a sensitive jerk. If that's how he treats a Hall of Famer, he must be a huge (blank).
Grichuk doesn't have the benefit of treading water. He needs to leave a strong impression now so that the Cardinals don't give up on him and give a chance to the other outfielders waiting for their chances at Class AAA Memphis and Class AA Springfield.
It was definitely convenient. Jeff is right, but I don't think the Cardinals placed those two veterans on the disabled list just so Bader and Weaver can play.
I had an issue with how Kaepernick protested. As a guy who served, I hate when anybody disrespects our anthem or flag. With all that said, I think it's sad that he cannot find a job in a league that thinks it's worse to take a knee for the anthem than to hit a spouse or drive drunk.
I don't think the Cardinals regret signing Fowler. They needed him.
I would assume the Cardinals could get a decent prospect in return for Lynn. If they keep Lynn at the trade deadline, it's because the Cardinals want to make a run at the division title. Despite his last start, Wacha has been on a nice run lately. I wouldn't give up on him. He has a special arm. If he doesn't hold up in the rotation, he has the potential to be a special reliever.
I don't think you'd get fair value back for Wacha, who is still raising his stock back up.
I expect the Cardinals to make a modest trade for a reliever. I expect the Cardinals to make what you would describe as a bold move in the offseason.
I agree with you 100 percent. They just need to fix the bullpen and get guys like Fowler and Piscotty to return and regain their previous star form.
There is a definite change in the atmosphere. As long as a beloved veteran isn't traded, teammates welcome the new rookie and embrace his special day.
Donaldson would have transformed the team.
Considering all the issues the city has, I'm still shocked people thought it was a good idea to use $60 million in tax money to give it to billionaires and millionaires for an MLS stadium.
There are very few secrets in baseball even when teams aren't hacking each other's databases. The Cardinals aren't in a must-sell position, though.
St. Louis is not an option for the NBA. Hell, the city cannot afford an MLS stadium. An expansion NBA team will surely want the city to help pay to build an NBA Arena. That isn't happening here.
The Marlins bats - Ozuna, Stanton and Yelich - are out there, and so is Donaldson.
Fowler has a no-trade clause. He isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
I would focus on the bullpen market if you're thinking of the Cardinals.
Alabama is on another level until somebody proves otherwise.
