Is there serious interest by the Cardinals or any other team in him? His 2022 MILB stats are off the charts.

I think we will see what he can do in MLB some time next year. Mo doesn’t want another Adolis Garcia.August 14, 2022 at 7:27 pm #195593
but somebody might.August 14, 2022 at 7:37 pm #195596bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
Hopefully the Cardinals have learned that there is a reason they drafted or signed the guys they did, and to trust their instincts. Don’t give anyone away until you have given them a chance.August 14, 2022 at 8:47 pm #195604
Who has the most all around potential? Yepez or Gomez?August 14, 2022 at 8:57 pm #195607
At this point Yepez because he has proven it at the highest level.
It is hard to ignore the season Gomez has put together though. It is reminiscent of what Adolis Garcia and Tyler O’Neill did, at least for one year. The competition for the Cardinal OF/DH spots will be fierce the next couple of years so I don’t know if Gomez will make it in St. Louis or not. He could be a good trade piece at least.
Trading Adolis Garcia wasn’t the sin. The sin was trading him for nothing. The Cardinals gave him away. I don’t think we will make that mistake with Gomez. He might help us land a frontline starter.August 14, 2022 at 10:25 pm #195617
Not asking about the highest level. Asking about the highest overall ceiling between the two.August 14, 2022 at 10:44 pm #195619
As I said Yepez would get my vote.August 15, 2022 at 2:04 am #195621CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
For potential I take Gomez. Yepez never showed the power Gomez hás.August 15, 2022 at 2:47 am #195622858booyahParticipantFree

What does he do but k a lot, and drive in runs? His OPS is is mid .700?
Dude is overrated! We miss him about as bad a he misses us.August 15, 2022 at 3:19 am #195623Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
Gomez has to mprove his K rate.August 15, 2022 at 6:52 am #195624
Yepez has had success for a few years now. Gomez has had one big year. He will need to do it again next year to prove this year wasn’t a fluke.August 15, 2022 at 7:33 am #195629Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual
Even with flaws, Gomez leading all of the minors (not just the Cardinals system) in home runs while handling the move from Double-A to Triple-A at age 23 seems notable. His Triple-A OPS is .893.August 15, 2022 at 7:42 am #195631
They both can be good.August 15, 2022 at 8:03 am #195632
Yepez at Memphis this season – .273/.318/.596/.914
Gomez at Memphis this season after being called up from Springfield –
.274/.345/.548/.894August 15, 2022 at 9:49 am #195641
At this point Yepez is the more proven player but we shall see what the future brings. If they both continue to slug and the Cardinals have to find room for both it will be a nice problem to have.August 15, 2022 at 9:57 am #195645Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual
Agreed. Competition is always good. Perceived roster conflicts always get worked out, though sometimes too slowly for the impatient.
If Gomez hits his way onto the 40-man, that is good for the Cardinals and takes nothing away from Yepez or anyone else. Roster spots always open up in the off-season.August 15, 2022 at 10:05 am #195649
Just wondering how it sorts out with Yepez, Gomez, and Walker. And how O’Neill and Carlson fit into the equation. Plus Burly from the left side. It’ll be interesting.August 15, 2022 at 12:37 pm #195679bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
With some possible high ceiling guys in the pipeline, the off season will be a good time to deal someone like Carlson, who is an enticing potential future star, for a good pitcher.
Then again, we already did something similar the Bader-Montgomery deal.August 15, 2022 at 12:49 pm #195681
Who’s the better trade chip, Mike, Carlson or O’Neill?
Both from the seller’s and buyer’s standpoint.August 15, 2022 at 1:21 pm #195689
Do not trade Carlson, a switch hitter. O’Neill can be replaced by Gorman or Walker.
DH-Burleson vs LH/Yepez RHAugust 15, 2022 at 1:35 pm #195690
That’s really interesting. I like that a lot. Most of us haven’t paid enough attention to moving Gorman to LF. Then Winn replaces DeJong when DeJong’s contract is up at the end of 2023?August 15, 2022 at 2:49 pm #195697stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Gorman and his 43rd percentile sprint speed to the OF to replace one of the 12 fastest players in baseball? That after trading another of baseball’s best defenders to clear room for a lesser defender in CF? And then throw a rookie with a couple months experience into RF? Yeah, that is definitely not happening.
I get that the old school doesn’t like O’Neill…he whiffs a lot and doesn’t hit for much average. Yet 2021 is exactly why you don’t sell low on him. Gorman in LF, for all his talent, doesn’t offer the floor or the ceiling that Tyler has.
There are guys who probably peaked this year or in the last two and offer a much lower ceiling that you could get a lot more from…Edman, Gallegos, Woodford, Gomez come to mind.August 15, 2022 at 3:06 pm #195701Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
I likeGomez as a trade chip, and I would add him to our 40 man roster, but would like to include him in a deal this offseason for pitching. I am not sure that Gomez won’t be a AAAA player.August 15, 2022 at 4:26 pm #195715
The line-up that I posted obviously was not for this year. It also assumes O’Neill gets traded. I like O’Neill and I am for keeping him but think that the Cardinals probably move him. He is injured an awful lot. Gorman is an LH power hitter and would fit in well as a corner OF’er. Walker seems to me to an RF’er.
