    No Cardinals are participating in Saturday’s AFL Home Run Derby.

    BW, are you in Arizona this week? If so, looking forward to your reports!

    Assuming the market knows Walker and Winn are off limits, Tink Hence will likely be the 1st name out of other GM’s mouths in trade talks this off-season.

    Hence is the most off limits for me due tô lack of other high ceiling pitching prospects

    Before the game, I asked Antico about his power, so I am taking credit for the long ball.

    Four Cardinals, as I predicted. Walker, Winn, Thomas and Hence. Strong showing.

    Hasn’t Pages also been added?

    Haven’t seen that, bccran. What is your source?

    Sorry, Brian. It was the wrong Pages that someone passed along. They made a mistake. They saw Pages and thought it was a Cardinal. It was actually Andy Pages.

    Funny you should mention Pedro. For some reason, in two different stadiums so far, they are pronouncing his name backwards – PAY-haas instead of PAH-hays.

    Good at bat by Walker. Gets behind on the count 0-2 and takes 4 straight balls without biting. Nice plate discipline.

    Loutos hás pitched like an all star

    He has, and he has some swing and miss, which I understand Mo is looking for. It would be something to see a Division 3 guy make it to the show. Hopefully he can spend most of next year in AAA, but my hunch he will be up fairly early once guys start hitting the IL or peppering the backstop.

    We like our 6-12 guy with 5.47 ERA and 1.570 WHIP better than our 12-4 guy with 4.31 ERA and 1.172 WHIP.

    Meanwhile, there is a good chance we will hit opening day with a rotation consisting of zero guys drafted and developed in house. We’ll see what happens I guess.

    I realize that there’s very little chance to convince you otherwise, but Parsons’ 2022 was entirely smoke and mirrors. His previous two full year ERAs were over 5, and had he not run an insanely low batting average on balls in play (his .200 mark is about 15% lower than the MLB best mark this year for any pitcher), he would have been in the same position with Memphis. I’m glad he had a solid year, but there’s a much greater chance that those two switch positions next year in the stat line than that they remain in the same place.
