We already had brad miller for a while and outside of a early hot streak he wasn’t very good and his defense was bad. So no.
Carp may have been unlucky at times but I believe that his approach and the fact he’s older are the biggest factors for him not hitting.
Matz is a ground ball pitcher so I think our defense should help him a lot. Though if they do decide to move the walls in, things can change cause usually when ground ball pitchers do give up the fly balls, they tend to travel a bit.
The braves had a lot of fortunate things go their way plus made a couple moves that worked out for them.
The.mets owner blasted matz for signing with Cardinals, is this some kind of pay back.
I wouldn’t give a crap if castellan’s was babe Ruth, he should never be a cardinal.
I don’t think matz is a bad signing. Yes I would prefer stroman but the Cardinals aren’t going to pay what he deserves so it is what it is. This is pretty much what they do. You can argue the years I guess but that’s all I am concerned about. If he pitches like he pitched this past year, he will be fine. Does it make us a lot better, probably not but it is an improvement.
I don’t see the need for him. I don’t think he is enough of a upgrade to offset the negatives.
It won’t be low hanging by what they have done so far, the fruit is on the ground.
In my opinion neither player deserved those awards
Yea l was a big fan of carp his first few years. I wish him well.
If india doesn’t win, it will make the whole process a joke.
Well you don’t have to do a whole lot to be worth 8 million.
Personally I don’t agree with moving edman to short either just to do it. We go from 3 gold gloves to maybe 2 on the infield. Especially not until Gorman proves he belongs offensively and defensively. Also Gorman succeeding at every level means nothing. All players do that until they don’t. I hope he does but I’m not going to talk about his placement until he does.
Well I’m fine with those guys moving on. You have to chase that dream and sometimes a change of scenery can make it happen.
Gorman better learn how to consistently hit major league pitching before we annoint him anything.
Really dont know that any on that list deserve mvp. Did any of those make the playoffs. What was their value. Best player on a losing team though I know Toronto had a pretty good record.
It wouldn’t look good.
You have never been more right there Eurodandy
Hopefully dean will do well but I never was a big fan.
My thoughts though I don’t know all the he facts here but it seems plummer is on the rise. I would probably protect him if I was the Cardinals but again I fall back on what is their plan for him and what are they seeing in the numbers. Personally I don’t see criticizing the Cardinals on these protections of players that haven’t even had a shot in the bigs. Players that have, yea I criticize right away if I feel merited but these young guys are hit and miss. If they get taken and do well, good for them. I don’t blame management there.
Bccran here you go again. I did no Monday morning quarterbacking. Bottom line is you mentioned his numbers at A ball. Like I said, doesn’t mean anything. I don’t personally remember the player in question. People said it was a mistake not protecting him. Time has proven otherwise, he turned out how he was going to turn out.
I think this notion that a player would have developed differently if he had stayed in a organization vs not is basic rubbish. The Cardinals don’t have any more magic with players than other teams. Having a great offensive year in A ball means nothing. People get too hung up on minor league numbers especially the low levels. Even higher level numbers can mislead. I don’t remember the name but there was this player that always raked in the minors for the cards back quite a few years ago. He got some chances not a lot with big club but didn’t do great in short time. He ended up with Houston I believe and they gave him a full shot but he never materialized as anything even average in the bigs so you have to be mindful of numbers sometimes.
Well pretty simple really. Cardinals should try to protect the players they have an actual plan for. The other players should just be left alone. Maybe a team that has an actual plan for them will take them.
