    Hopefully this one doesn’t turn out like the last lefty we picked up from the Angels (more directly).

    Bob Reed is gonna lose it when he hears this! JK Bob. As a fellow member of the Urias fan club, I am sad to see he may not make it to the major leagues.

    My analysis (for members).

    I think Ricardo Sanchez’ primary role is to help our AAA batters get used to looking at pitches coming from a lefthanded pitcher. Makes sense.

    I believe you have been afflicted with the classic “Provenitis simplis.” The Cards have bats; they just haven’t quite done it at the MLB level yet. I, for one, am weary of signing Fowlers and Leakes that provide little value and block guys who could be quite solid. Between O’Neill, Carlson, Bader and Thomas I’d bet we will have an above average outfield, and the infield will be fine as well.

    CC is going to be crushed, too. Urias has a lot of backers. As I wrote, I think he will quickly get a shot elsewhere and I don’t think MLB is out of the question for him at all. It just isn’t going to be with StL.

    I think this ends the Sosa vs Urias debate.

    This is not to kid CC, but sometimes those sophisticated measuring tools like wRC+ simply don’t tell the entire story.

    If Urias makes it through the DFA will he still be invited to ST?

    Why would this end the debate? It will be several years before we know who the better player was.

    Dont forget, I have Bob Reed in my corner as well 🙂

    Cards must see him as an RP.

    Well it ends the debate as to who will be playing for St. Louis. Even if Urias doesn’t get claimed on waivers the Cardinals have made their feelings obvious on who is ahead of who in the pecking order.

    Does RP mean relief pitcher? I am pretty sure that Urias is an infielder.

    “Does RP mean relief pitcher? I am pretty sure that Urias is an infielder.”

    Cards claimed left-hander Ricardo Sánchez off waivers from Seattle on Thursday.

    It’s always interesting to pick up a pitcher who has never relieved on a consistent basis. Who knows, his stuff tick up a few mphs.

    Got it. The five posts prior to yours in this thread were referring to Urias. I didn’t realize you had switched back to discussing Sanchez.

    Not surprising that Urias was wanted…

    Good for Urias. You would think that he would get some playing time in a place like Baltimore.
