Terry Bradshaw might be coaching the wrong sport.
This one actually was drafted by and played for the Cardinals in short parts of 1995 and 1996. It was his only MLB action.
Plus, I bet he doesn’t say “Jag-wires”! 😉December 5, 2019 at 8:23 pm #116081December 5, 2019 at 8:35 pm #116082
What is an associate manager?December 5, 2019 at 8:45 pm #116083December 5, 2019 at 10:50 pm #116090December 5, 2019 at 10:52 pm #116091
What is an associate manager?
A new title created by a PBO? Now, the fun will begin as other copycat teams follow.
Prediction for next up – Manager of Field Operations… 😉

For whatever reason Pham was traded, Cy Young winner Blake Snell wasn’t happy when he found out on a live Twitch feed:
From what I’ve read is the Rays traded him to save money. Renfroe is a cheaper option.December 7, 2019 at 12:54 pm #116174December 8, 2019 at 7:57 am #116209Minuteman3ParticipantFree
Lots of whining (not here) about Rosenthal being burned out by Matheny but he sure sounds happy to be reunited with him. I frankly don’t think Rosenthal is a good acquisition minor league contract or not. So that is almost a guarantee he will prove me wrong this season (but I doubt it). But KC is investing 2 million plus 2 million and change in incentives. This is where I think baseball has gone nuts. A guy whose career is on a downhill slant simply does not justify TWO MILLION DOLLARS as a relief pitcher. I know, I know, that is the way of MLB these days but it is still WRONG.December 8, 2019 at 8:01 am #116210
You misunderstand, MM3. Rosenthal was signed to a MINOR league contract. He only makes the big money if he pitches well enough in the spring to make the team.December 15, 2019 at 7:14 pm #116865December 15, 2019 at 7:35 pm #116867
Honestly a $2 million base with another $2.5 million in incentives is chump change. The incentives are extremely low.December 15, 2019 at 8:06 pm #116868
Sometimes you just have to move on. This is one of those occasions. Rosenthal has not been right since coming back from TJS. He has been with three different organizations, and at the MLB level, has a 13.50 ERA. In the minors, it was 9.60. That covers 39 appearances.December 16, 2019 at 3:30 pm #116922December 16, 2019 at 6:06 pm #116933
Brian, I was not advocating that the Cards should have signed him.December 17, 2019 at 6:18 pm #117058December 20, 2019 at 8:32 pm #117226December 26, 2019 at 7:21 pm #117693
The Wizard turned 65 today.
Thanks to everyone for the birthday shout outs! I got to spend the day on the golf course here in STL with 70 degree weather. That was a great gift!
Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and best wishes for a prosperous 2020!

Remember when we had a long thread with debate over whether the Cards should re-sign Ross or Wainwright for 2019?
The #SFGiants signed veteran pitcher Tyson Ross, a Bay Area native, to a minor-league deal. He'll earn $1.75 million w/ $1.75M in incentives if he makes their big-league team. Ross earned $5.75M last year with the #Tigers, but didn't pitch after May 10 with elbow/neck injuries.

Ex-Tigers SS Pete Kozma has signed with the Atlanta Braves

Kozma’s glove just keeps giving him chance after chance. Good for Pete. He’s made himself a few million bucks playing baseball, which is great news for he and his family.January 4, 2020 at 11:28 am #118307
He was playing in Australia this winter. Not afraid to live out of a suitcase to play ball…January 4, 2020 at 12:10 pm #118313Minuteman3ParticipantFree
Pete was always one of my favorites. Pure coincidence that I was getting ready to look him up when I got the word on TCN that he signed with the Braves. I remember when Pete was batting .225-.230 and the fans were killing him despite great defense at SS. Now he doesn’t come close to that in his few chances but a lot of the 2019 Cardinals were hovering in that same BA range and not getting half the grief that Pete got.
Never knew that he played in Australia is winter (their summer). One of those guys that just hangs around and makes money doing what he loves.January 4, 2020 at 12:21 pm #118315mudvilleParticipantPaid - Annual
Kozma has been able to tuck away a couple of million bucks before the age of 30. Good for him.January 4, 2020 at 12:39 pm #118316gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
I always liked Pete. He can always tell his grandkids that he was the starting shortstop on a world series team.
