    I read the Rosenthal twitter post and went through some of the comments. Funny as he!!. Nearly everyone of them were classic negative (every year the same) remarks. Also calling out Mozeliak and DeWitt for merely bringing in mediocre and the cheapest players. Something tells me that those two will figure out a way to surprise all of us with a holiday present (#1/#2 SP) wrapped up neatly and a bowtie on the top.

    Not that I find MLB’s top 30 to be very astute but they slipped Gomez in at #30 and we already have him at #15. Maybe too much rah-rah for him on this blog? Bernal at #11 maybe for the same reason.

    Yeah, I saw that today cf64. Something is not kosher there.

    I agree with those having Pacheco in the low 20s. Also Gomez in the high 20s. We’re just in the mid teens now and there’s too much talent and potential ahead of these guys plus both are 24 That’s only my opinion of course.

    #14 = Mautz

    #15 = Hansen

    Two young lefties who project into our rotation at some point soon.

    Some players do wonders in contract seasons…. see Fowler.

    Peguero is the headliner here. Very good numbers at AAA and pitched 13 games in relief for the Brewers in’22 with not so good #s. He’ll likely get a shot at their ’23 rotation. Junk may get a shot in the Brewer’s BP. I couldn’t get much info on Seminaris.

    MIL must be headed towards filling Renfoe’s spot outside of the organization because I don’t see much in their system OF-wise.

    The price for Gallen would be huge…. Alcantara?…. maybe the entire Card’s present rotation and the starting OF. Their value has skyrocketed since Mo traded them. But we did get Ozuna for them…. remember him from his STL days? Did we get fleeced or what?

    Right you are gsc. Since it will only take money to get him…. we don’t have a problem except for 29 other teams, most would love to have him catching for them. With that in mind, I guess we’ll be outbid after all.

    bcc…. I noticed that you have stopped voting. I’m sure that everyone here would want to know your selections and I know that you love this process. There is no good reason for you abstaining…. at least I can’t think of any.

    I voted while I was managing the list.

    One thing I don’t want to see is Mo trading several top prospects over the winter unless its for Contreras.

    cardsfan4 proposed these trades on VEB obviously before the departure of Reyes.

    Burleson, Baez and Love for Jansen
    O’Neill for Jansen and Cimber
    Carlson, Liberatore, and Reyes for Moreno
    Nootbaar and Mejia for Kirk
    Winn and Burleson for Kirk
    Walker for Moreno

    BTW… Reyes is still a young man but could write a book pertaining to his experiences while in the STL organization. Good luck Alex.

    This thread should be for light discussion without a ton of stats but still open to anything.

    When I was a kid in the 60s my grandpa had an actual hot stove out in the garage behind his house. He and his friends sat out there in the winter smoking cigars and talking about baseball and fishing.

    My dad smoked cigars and my brother and I always watched all the games on the black and white TV out in the garage with him and sometimes my uncle when he came by. He wouldn’t smoke them in the house to keep mom happy and kept a couple of propane tank heaters out there for the football games in the winter. I’m always hard pressed to find an old photo of him without the ever present cigar. He was a White Owl guy who smoked those things like he was mad at them. I never smoked cigars, but always kind of liked the aroma.

    I have a picture in my mind of what the hot stove scenario would look like and would loved to have been an attendee. Give me a cigar I’d smoke it. Try to get a White Owl today the closest you’ll get is Phillies. In my younger days I spent time with my uncle smoking Optimums because that’s what he smoked. Almost all the cigars of that ilk are long gone. Do you remember any others like Dutch Masters etc?

    I’m thinking that TOR may be getting better offers that STL may not be willing to match. TOR could have doubts about O’Neill.

    I’m thinking that there are other teams might be seeing more value in him.

    Another far-fetched rumor from that mill.

    Liberatore and McGravy. I have a lot optimism for both these guys. IMO Liberatore will breakout in ’23 and McGreevy will continue to improve at AAA. A call-up for him at the end of’23 is a possibility.

    I would like to see in 2-3 yrs an OF of:
    LF-Gorman
    CF-Winn
    RF-Walker

    That is top talent at all 3 OF positions.

    ….. and then there’s

    I was merely pointing out the tendency of some on this board to get overly excited about the occasional unproven quantity.

    I’m somewhere in the middle.

    I expect Carlson and Gorman to be closer to stardom at the end of next season than they are right now. Then same could be said for Liberatore and Herrera.

    Nigel, couldn’t agree more.

    Has anyone else heard about Matt Carpenter coming back? He will be one of the players that will benefit the most from the shift rule. IMO that’s what screwed him up mentally. Plus he seems to have straightened out a few other problems with his approach at the plate. Its not like we haven’t brought back old favorites and got great value.
