    I do wish when we gamble on a guy we would find a way to work in an option on the contract so that if the gamble pays off we reap a little more benefit.

    The option on Oh didn’t work out well at all though. We were all probably grateful for it pre-2017 though.

    Black Hills Cards-as we say in the Midwest-have a nice day.

    For those who follow uniform number assignments, like me, Norris will get Oh’s old #26. TBD if he ends up with his old closing job as well.

    Still no word on the 40 man roster move? I know it is a minority view and unpopular option but I won’t be surprised if it is Voit. I think.he is the most likely to.pass through waivers and we have 2_ minor league FAs ready to replace him.

    The 40-man move will be disclosed Wednesday.

    Well what’s said is said and what’s done is done. Norris is coming and only his performance will decide if he’s here past July.

    Rowan Wick was designated for assignment.

    Not to make fun of Wick, but for some reason this came to mind…

    Gotta love Spring Training!

    Norris replaces Wick… pretty simple stuff. Wick might still wind up in Memphis, but his career has taken a hit. There’s a 50/50 chance he gets released… the AAA is loaded up also.

    Maybe he can try catching again.

    Hope he can stay with the organization.Either at AAA or AA and try to get his career back on track.There will always be a need for live arms because of injury or ineffectiveness.

    Wick is actually ahead of Jason Motte at the same time in their development.

    I think the chance of Wick being released is less than 1%. If he was good enough to stay on the 40-man following last season, why would he suddenly become release-worthy during the same off-season? Makes no sense.

    (Please do not tell me that the Cardinals have so many better relief candidates than him at Springfield and Memphis that there is no room. I am not buying that – especially before even one spring training inning has been played.)

    I agree Mr. Walton. He still has a place in the system.

    Mr. Walton, re-thinking my comment, I believe you are right.

    Willie Mays Hayes. I hit like Mays, and I run like Hayes.

    Goold reporting on twitter Wick has been claimed off waivers. New team is tba

    Yet another Cardinal to those scheming, no-good Padres! šŸ˜‰

    Mo really likes being bent over by the Padres. Awesome waste of resources and assets.

    Haha. I bet they would’ve picked up any of the players put on waivers. Mayers’ offseason probably sealed the deal with Wick being chosen. I love that you think Mozeliak somehow wasted resources. How is he wasteful exactly?

    Had the same conversation just now on Twitter with an angry fan.

    I wish we would’ve gotten Wade Miley. I can’t believe he signed just a MiLB deal with the Brewers. I think he would’ve been a good Blanton/Norris conversion candidate for the bullpen as well as backup starter with LH potential.

    That would push Bowman or Brebbia to AAA in the hypothetical roster, but they’d be back given the likelihood of injury, then Miley/Gant/Norris (along with Flaherty could fight for the rotation spot.

    You would also have to free up another 40-man spot at the end of the spring for Miley.

    Kind of a strange coincidence that the Padres have acquired 3 of our players recently for nothing, including a Luis Perdomo twice, once back in the day. You can’t keep everyone. And until the Ozuna trade, to a fault, the Cards were hanging on to all prospects. HOnestly don’t think Wick will make it to the majors, but who knows.
