    gscottar – Nice point to say that Owners aren’t going to be under pressure to build 95 win teams any longer. It makes sense. That ought to reduce the intensity of the bidding for free agents thereby reducing the cost of free agents.

    It might work out that way but if prices drop that might mean that more teams can afford to shop. Who knows? One thing we know for sure is that the MLBPA isn’t going to like it and fight over the new CBA is already shaping up to be a massive war.

    MLBPA will fight it big time.

    No problem. It too me all of 2 minutes to find it so it was no big deal.

    Everything in it’s proper place, Forsch.
    Right? Thanks for facilitating.

    This thread could be pollution free if we could get back on topic. Thoughts on the offense, bc?

    25 – you’re a good guy who’s acting out of character right now. You’re much better in your normal patient, nice mode.

    In 2015, they added Heyward to the Holliday led Of.

    In 2016, they still had Holliday, and tried to feed in youngsters Grichuk and Piscotty.

    In 2017, they brought in Fowler, and gave Pham, Piscotty, and Grichuk the main shots.

    In 2018, they brought in Ozuna to try to bulk it up with Fowler, and Pham got the main shot in CF.

    In 2019, they still had experience in Ozuna and Fowler.

    In 2020, they didn’t re-sign Ozuna, Dex was in the twilight, and they didn’t bulk the OF up from the outside. Big risk.

    In 2021, they went all unproven. Even bigger risk. We’ll see how that works out.

    “It’s 3 games”

    and 18 runs scored. How? I don’t care, and I won’t whine, just keep the 6 RS avg per game and I won’t make a peep.

    You bet. Shildt would take 6 runs a game in a heartbeat, and I bet bc would too.

    OF is about 4 out of 36 with around 16 Ks.
    Sound about right?

    If the Cards acquired Joe Panik, he would become an instant fan favorite.

    Joe Panick – Is that one of our poster’s nicknames?

    Austin Dean had a rough night last night. He looked very overmatched. It’ll be interesting to see if they end up putting Nogowski out there sooner rather than later to get his bat in the lineup.

    Should have signed Adam Eaton.

    You would think they would move a guy like Nogowski, who shows some ability at the plate, to the front of the line. But that isn’t how it works. RA hit .300 at Memphis so they traded him. I think we will be seeing what we are seeing for a while. Mo needs more data points before he can shift the SABR spew and find out there aren’t any nuggets in there.

    Should have signed Adam Eaton.

    Yes, because he is 4 for 16 with 4 strikeouts and at least 1 fielding error.

    No, because he’s been in the majors for 9 years, Forsch, and has a career line of .282/.359/.416/.775.
    Proven major league performer.
