In my opinion, the Cardinals are legit NL Central contenders. I genuinely believe that.
Remember that I've been pretty high on the Cardinals' pitching depth.
I would think that Schildt had the leg up last year. I don't know if Clapp would have it this year.
I've not been with the team for more than two weeks. I don't know what to tell you.
I disagree. You can look at it two ways, I guess. I prefer to look at it as validation of what we wrote heading into spring training. We told you that Hicks had the potential to be special and to close. He is special. Only time will tell whether he's ready, but it makes sense to take a chance on him.
Thanks. I think he was just trying to be funny.
If Wainwright has a good season this year, I could definitely envision him wanting to return next season. It all depends how we he does. I cannot imagine that he'll want to just stick around as a No. 5 starter, though.
All three teams have decent depth in their farm systems. It all depends what they need.
For the right price, they'll surely bring him back. Trust me that he makes an impact for the team way beyond his stats. He's a true leader who helps the younger members of the staff.
Thanks for joining us this week. Considering there are no more questions in the queue, see you all next week. May you all have a blessed Easter weekend.
