    A nice article on Jon Jay. He certainly gives his former Cards coaches and teammates a lot of credit for his growth, as well.

    Several things about that article.

    1.) His stabilizing influence was one of the factors in the Cardinals’ success.
    2.) He wasn’t given enough credit here for his leadership and mentoring of younger players. And leadership is critical on any successful team.

    As an aside, that’s quite a stat on 10 year players – only 6% of 20,000.

    At the other end of the former Cardinals minor league infielder spectrum, Ildemaro Vargas was DFAed by Arizona.

    Always liked Lynn and thought the Cards should have kept him. He is one of those big, workhorse type guys that gives you innings. When he left us he overplayed his hand and felt he would get more in free agency than he did.

    Former Cardinal Sean Gilmartin pitched in one game for the Rays and was then DFAed…

    Patrick Wisdom has been designated for assignment by the Mariners.

    And so it is for Patrick Wisdom. I always had high hopes for the guy. I’m happy that he was at least able to knock down $600K working for the Mariners in what was likely his last year of professional ball. That should help in get started in whatever he does next.

    Wisdom was given his release and should catch on somewhere as a minor league free agent at least.

    Stephen Piscotty hit a ninth inning grand slam to help force extra innings in the A’s comeback win over the Giants last night.

    It was his second ninth inning grand slam this year and made him the first Athletic and 14th player in MLB history with two ninth inning grand slams in the same season.

    *I also heard a stat this morning on either MLB Network or ESPN, not sure which, that said Piscotty and Andre Dawson are the only two players in MLB history to hit two ninth inning grand slams in the first 20 games of a season.

    Tommy Pham has a broken hamate bone. Could be all for him in 2020.

    Probably made a maternal comment when he found out.

    Hamate’s are tough to come back from. Often takes 2 years to get your power back. Tommy might become a non tender candidate.
