    The Cardinals have worked hard to integrate players’ statistics/analytics with eyes on scouting reports. I’m
    told both are equally important.

    Prior stats aren’t that important?
    Oh, okay.

    Gragg in 2019 at Oklahoma State –

    ERA – 5.10
    WHIP – 1.61
    IP – 42.1
    H – 49
    K – 36
    W- 19

    Pitched most of the year out of the Cowboy bullpen.

    As a pro in the 2019 summer – 3.15 ERA, 1.33 WHIP

    Ralston was a starter for UCLA

    11-1
    ERA – 2.66
    WHIP 1.11
    IP – 101.1
    H – 79
    K – 110
    W – 33

    As a pro in the 2019 summer – 1.07 ERA, 0.75 WHIP

    I don’t see where Matt is coming from.

    All true, 25, but the Cardinals are committed to a team each year that can compete throughout the year and hopefully go far in the playoffs. At his age, I don’t think Bill Dewitt, Jr., wants to skip a year.

    Really interesting on this thread that Gragg is rated above both Seijas and Ralston.

    Thanks, 25. I wanted to leave Ravelo on there mainly to see what people think of him. He was the most reliable bat in the Memphis lineup in 2019.

    What happened to Peoria, 25?

    The problem is, neither Bader nor O’Neill can lay off the 4 seam at the letters. And they’re running out of time.

    For one reason, Brian, because several reporters on other sites say the Cardinals have interest in Ozuna. I’ll leave it at that.

    The Cardinals need an experienced bad badly. Maybe you haven’t seen it, but I’ve posted a list of all the FA left fielders. And expressed my opinion on that list. At the top of my list was Brantley. He could be a short timer like Beltran and Berkman were. Which is where I think the Card are headed this off season. Another Brad Miller type or two. For the OF or 3B. Or both.

    I truly don’t know why in the world you want to be so condescending on a peaceful Sunday afternoon, Brian. And comment on someone’s “stubbornness”. I have never said that the Cardinals would be pushing hard for Ozuna. Or even said there’s a strong probability that they will sign him. There’s very little chance of that. But what I have said is that I wouldn’t totally rule it out. They like players that they know. It’s my opinion. I have a right to express it. And I will.

    As I’ve said multiple times, the Cardinals are partial to players they have come to know – what kind of teammate they are, how they interface with the GM and front office, the fans, people in the community, etc. I said nothing about bringing someone back. Just a partiality. So if the real Ozuna has now returned after his injuries, I see no reason why they wouldn’t consider him for a badly needed MOTO bat. Plus it wouldn’t be the first time that a player returned to the Cardinals.

    1.) The only reason I mention Ozuna is because they know him and that’s their modus. With the exception of Carlson and Gorman, a big bat within the organization is way far off. Maybe Walker.

    2.) Brantley, a 34 year old in a market with team’s revenues way down, may be a lot more affordable than 2/$28.

    Really glad that Cardinals27 voted for Tony Locey. Locey’s really intriguing, and is flying under the radar in the shadow of Liberatore, Thompson, Oviedo, Rondon, Seijas, Hence, etc. His 2019 numbers at U. Of Georgia were eye popping – 11-2, 89 IP, only 51 hits given, struck out 97, had a 2.53 ERA, and a 1.08 WHIP. His only issue was a little wildness with 45 walks. He also gave up 8 home runs. The Cards drafted him in the 3rd round.

    After being drafted, he pitches 2 innings in the GCL, and then is promoted all the way up to Peoria. In 10 relief appearances
    and 15 total innings, he has an ERA of 6.00 and a WHIP of 1.67.

    But wait a minute. He struck out 28 in those 15 innings. Wow. Do we have another Helsley, Fernandez, Whitley, etc. coming through the system? As Cardinals27 mentioned, he’s hit 100mph on the gun. If he can gain more control, he could be a force at either starter or in the pen some day. Thanks again, Cardinals27.

    Could be, Forsch, but those 26 home runs in 83 1/3 innings at Springfield is pretty ugly.

    I think you know I’m referring to Carlson, Forsch. Bader could be an asset to the Cards if he gets out of his own way.

    Is signing Ozuna or Brantley going to mess this up?

    Ladies and Gentlemen – your 2020 St. Louis Cardinals outfield. And some of you want to go into 2021 without adding someone?

    Our need is to buoy up our disastrous outfield.

    Tough not to criticize when the results simply aren’t there, Brian. We went into 2020 with two slots in the outfield filled by unproven players. And our situation hasn’t changed, except that Carlson has arrived. We now have an aging and declining right fielder who has stats nowhere near what a RFer should have. A budding star in CF. And 3 stumbling guys to try to fill the slot in LF. Where I think you will find the Cards getting a solid veteran in the off season.

    25 –
    I’m not as sophisticated as you are in analyzing stats.
    I just look at a .226 batting average and some of the mistakes that Bader made in the field, and I don’t care for him as a player. I look at him as a Bourjos clone. Brian insults me when he says I analyze a players effectiveness by whether I like him or not. I’ve been around the game and been a fan far too long for that.
