    Brantley helps the team next year, no doubt. By 2022 (when the team needs him to be a WS contender), he will eat up $16M+ of payroll and be a neutral contributor. By 2023, when they will be on a last hurrah before losing the big arms to FA, he would be dead weight. So no thanks. The Cards won’t contend for the Series next year so I don’t see what he adds. It would be a Fowler Special.

    Not a news item, but a cool World Series historic look in which the Cardinals are prominent.

    Good story about the scout who recommended the Rays acquire Arozarena. It highlights a point I was trying to make on another thread. Assessing players is so much more than slash stat lines or even Statcast results. it is a shame so many scouts are being let go across the game.

    Interview with Dave Duncan. He is not going back to Chicago even if TLR does.

    (My editorial comment – It sure would be nice to see him in the Cardinals Hall of Fame while he can accept the award.)

    Seth Blair opened some eyes at the Red Sox alternate camp this summer.

    From the Boston Globe:
    A number of relievers who had intriguing performances at the team’s Alternate Site in Pawtucket have re-signed on minor league deals. The group includes Seth Blair, lefthander Stephen Gonsalves,
    and righthander Caleb Simpson.

    He was a supplemental first-round pick in 2010…couldn’t throw strikes. Jordan Swagerty was
    in the same draft and was on the fast-track to St. Louis until injuries derailed his career.

    Solano is a great story. Ozuna also won at NL DH.

    I wonder if she gave him the ring he missed last month! https://twitter.com/RaysBaseball/status/1327329052861083648

    Former Cardinals pitcher Lindy McDaniel passes away in Carrollton, TX. Amazingly the story says he never played in the post season even though he played for the Cardinals and Yankees.

    Pete Kozma has more than nine lives. He signed a minor league contract with Oakland.

    😀 I think most of my cards were on Rice Krinkles and Alpha-Bits boxes.

    I remember eating boxes of Rice Krinkles to get this set of nine plastic cars…

    Wow, that toy Mustang panel brings back memories, as I collected those as well. At some point maybe I will upload a baseball card panel I have, which happens to also include the McDaniel card.

    I don’t remember those mustang cars, BicycleMike….a bit before my time. I do recall the matchbox cars. And the glossy small baseball cards that you’d get in cereal boxes. My favorite baseball appetizer was those little baseball coins that came out…..I think in Topps baseball card packs if memory serves me correct. I was like 6 years old, so I may be a bit foggy on that.

    Good story about Lance Lynn – how he has improved and increased his value and where the Rangers might trade him. (No, the Cardinals are not mentioned among the potential candidates.)

    Good story about Stan by Benjamin Hochman, but I find very odd Derrick Goold’s apparent support of the supposed rained out home run that deprived Stan of the 1948 Triple Crown. Hochman may not know the background, but Goold surely does. Goold himself (as well as many others) thoroughly researched this matter previously and found no proof of the long-rumored lost homer. In fact, the game’s most prominent researcher flatly informed Goold it did not happen. (See the link to Goold’s article at the bottom of this post.)
