I think Hudson and Knizner will get major leage deals by someone. They do have value. Woodford and Yepez may have to settle for minor leage deals.
A year or two ago the stock of Yepez was trending up. He really plummeted in a hurry.November 18, 2023 at 3:24 pm #237498Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
I’m surprised Knizner couldn’t have been traded. He could be a cheap starting catcher or as insurance in case your starter goes down with injury. But now I do see why Pages was added to the 40 man roster.

Kiz will land at least 2mil. I thought he could have sneaky good value. Whoever he signs with didn’t have to trade value, just by waiting.November 18, 2023 at 4:06 pm #237501
Yepez was trending up. He really plummeted in a hurry.
Gomez had a similar trajectory down a notch in the system. He was a world beat the first half of 2022 in AA, and looked pretty good in AAA, then this year back to reality. But he still has a slot on the 40 man. It helps to be cheap with options left.November 18, 2023 at 5:48 pm #237505858booyahParticipantFree
Knizner has Marlins all over him.November 18, 2023 at 6:45 pm #237507
Looking at the full list of non tenders around MLB, its quite a crop of clunkers. The Cardinals group are standouts by comparison. Theoretically, Mo could have more egg on his face. Both Hudson and Yepez have had success in MLB and could have nice years if the stars align for them. Knizner would likely be solid as an injury replacement for somebody. And nothing says Woodford can’t have a 2022 (1.117 WHIP) doing decent middle relief for somebody willing to just leave him there knowing what his job is going to be day in day out. None of those outcomes would be shocking. Poor Mo.November 19, 2023 at 9:32 pm #237578CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
I am willing tô bet that at least one of our non tenders hás a significant impact somewhere next year.November 20, 2023 at 11:21 pm #237737Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
One good thing about roster decisions is that Pages should be the AAA catcher, Crooks should move up to AA, and Bernal to high A.November 21, 2023 at 6:40 am #237741Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual
Another way to think about it. A 91-loss, last place team trimmed a bunch of guys off the back end of the roster. I, for one, am happy they are going to try others rather than keep the status quo. Of course, it remains to be seen if the replacements perform better than those they replaced.November 21, 2023 at 10:29 am #237779forsch31ParticipantFree
When the guys let go perform as bad as they did, the bar is set real low for the replacements. Also, it’s not like these moves will knock the team out of the playoffs after a successful year. They lost 91 games with the guys they let go.November 21, 2023 at 3:05 pm #237849cardsfan64ParticipantFree

Hmmm. Interesting. Potential up side with no down side. I like it.November 21, 2023 at 9:55 pm #237910mudvilleParticipantPaid - Annual
I was hoping W-Rod would be back. I want to see him finish his story here, good or bad.November 27, 2023 at 2:52 pm #238345LouisEuParticipant
Maybe there is an error in the current roster matrix.
By adding Lynn the players became 214 and not 217.
The current total should be 217, not 220November 27, 2023 at 3:03 pm #238349Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual
Thanks, Louis. Mistake corrected.November 30, 2023 at 5:54 pm #238648cardsfan64ParticipantFree
