    Is there any info on Carp’s contract?

    The NYY have that no beard thing still going…. Carp looks a lot better. Good luck to him and I hope he finds the right field stands often that would be caught at Busch. How many times did he hit the wall or the warning track…. they’ll be goners now.

    How much time he’ll be in New York depends on when some Yanks coming off the IL.

    There is a whole lot of chatter on NY radio about him being in New York City….. lot of optimism. Something he hasn’t felt in years.

    Hopefully for him he starts off well, because when the honeymoon is over, it can get ugly there quickly.

    I’d sure like to see him go out looking like the old Carpenter. Like a lot of folks, I was down on him during his final days as a Cardinal. He deserves to have a good season and slide into retirement on a happy note.

    Carlos can’t get out of his own way. What a shame, another great arm that never quite became what he could have due to outside forces.

    Yesterday Bernie said something about Carpenter taking hitting advise from the Yankees that he refused to take with the Cardinals (Jeff Albert). Wonder what that was all about.

    I am not shocked.

    Tommy Pham causing some strife. Who thought that might happen.

    CMart’s career is most likely over.

    Nick Plummer looking great on his recall. He’d be an interesting call up option had the brass kept him rather than a couple other jabronis on the 40 man.

    St. Louis has been the last stop for a lot of guys in recent years, especially pitchers. Will they add more during this season?

    Plummer was selected 23rd overall in the draft. It will be telling in terms of our ability to develop Plummer if he does well with the Mets. Something to keep an eye on. I wonder what our failure rate is on the development of high draft picks compared with other organizations.

    As a reminder, Plummer had a breakout 2021 while still in the Cardinals system. He was certainly late to develop, but it isn’t like he didn’t hit well in his final season before being let go. In a way, it was similar to Juan Yepez but they decided to keep one and not the other. Time will tell.

    Dallas Keuchel maybe?

    Mo won’t take on that contract. Too big a gamble.

    Brian, I remember but I can’t remember who they kept instead. I can’t find the thread.

    There will never be enough justification for drafting a guy high in the draft, pay him a few million to sign, spend 7 years developing him only to watch him leave once he does develop and get nothing out of it. Poor asset management. If Plummer has a career similar to David Peralta (another Cards legend) it will an indictment against this FO.

    Exactly, we’ll said.

    Adolis Garcia Part 2? His current OPS is .681. Not everyone can sustain.

    David Peralta was a washed out minor league pitcher who tried it as an outfielder and went to indy ball and worked his rear off to get a second chance. His rebirth isn’t an indictment of anyone. It should be a celebration of his persistence.

    It isn’t totally clear who they kept over Plummer, but here are some moves in that time.

    In October, they added Yepez and dropped Seth Elledge.
    They claimed Ljay Newsome as Tyler Webb left.
    Once the free agents left, they added Donovan, Walsh and Freddy Pacheco to the 40-man.
    They kept open 5 40-man spots for winter moves. They were used on Matz, VerHagen, Wittgren, Dickerson and Naughton.
