I think both the TV and radio announcers have extra camera shots but to call road games without being there takes definite talent and we've got some here.
Many of the chock-full-of-walk innings haven't been horrible because the home-run ball--the great equalizing ingredient--hasn't been mixed in.
I don't know the answer to that one. The umpires didn't call it, I guess, because they must have felt Machado didn't have anywhere to go. But it looked bad.
You'd have to go with Hall of Famers here and I take Dizzy Dean and "Pop Haines.
Sometimes, where a catcher sets up is a ploy to try to fool the hitters, who invariably peek behind them to see. But if it that confuses the pitchers, too, then they might have to adopt Plan B.
He still is listed as the first-base coach for the Diamondbacks.
I guess that is something they could consider except that that would leave them short of position players defensively because Knizner's only other position is first base. And, actually the more he played, the more his average went down.
It would be Lynn without question because of his ability to make 30-plus starts and to go deep into games.
How did you feel about four or five days ago when the Cardinals had the best record in the league and were second for best record in the majors? You may voice your opinion at any time but there are many ebbs and flows in a six-month season.
I might do that or I might hit Carlson behind Arenado and maybe go back to Goldy, Arenado 2-3 with Carlson 4. Or hit Goldy, Arenado, Carlson 3-4-5 with somebody else second. Thanks for your kind words.
No word yet. With an off day, probably no word until tomorrow.
I'm OK with that, too. And O'Nell also can steal bases.
I would hope that the broadcasters would get to travel soon because baseball is a very hard sport to describe when you are not there.
Arenado can opt out but the extra year was added to induce him further not to opt out. He's not going anywhere.
Too early to answer that one. So far, I would say yes. .
Gyorko will manage an MLB Draft League prospects team in West Virginia.
Velocity is not everything and that certainly is part of the problem.
When Mikolas comes up at the start of another stretch of 17 games in 17 days, the club likely will employ a six-man rotation again, except that Mikolas or Carlos Martinez will be Oviedo.
Machado does have a history. I'm surprised more was not made of it at the time by the umpires or the Cardinals.
