When I interviewed Mendoza recently, I asked him if he or Knizner is the better third baseman!
You are right. I did not notice that. There is clearly something broken. Will look into that ASAP.
Also, my apology to Jager as it appears the current reality is infinite length threads. Hopefully we can get this fixed.
Question 1. You just did it! The key is to post at the bottom of the discussion thread. The only way comments are nested is if you click on REPLY to a specific comment already made (like I did here).
Question 2. The 4th box from the left just above the area in which you type in your comments says B-QUOTE. It puts HTML text ahead of the words you want to quote.
Then to end the quote, hit the same box again. That box now says /B-QUOTE. It will add the HTML to end the quote.
There are three settings which appear relevant.

Both are set at 25.

This was set at 5, but I just lowered it to 3 to see if it will help out on the width issues some are having.
Perhaps it was taking 25 replies nested five deep and allowing up to 125 comments per page. If so, I just cut it to 75.
I also saw that Motte is about ready to come off the DL for the Braves.
As an aside, they blew up their team, collected prospects to be ranked #3 farm system and currently have just two more losses than StL (57 to 55). They come into Busch next homestand.
That “TBA” guy at Palm Beach is one to watch! 😉
Perez has played five games since coming back up and is 5-for-19 (.263) at the plate, all singles. He had a bad game defensively on the 31st with three errors, two throwing and one fielding. He had two hits that day, but got caught stealing and was picked off. A day to forget for sure.
The good news is that he should get a full month to hopefully get his feet on the ground.
We are never all going to agree about anything, but let’s please stop short of mandating what fans and/or followers of a team can and cannot be.
Not every feature on the old board, which no longer exists as we knew it by the way, is available on this software.
It is not as if the ignore feature is here and I need a sales pitch why I should turn it on. I just don’t see it among the available options. I will look more into it later.
That I left you with the impression that page length is “infinite” is wrong. If it was infinite, I would not have asked if it is too short. To be specific, the number is currently 25.
I am not aware of an ignore function here. The moderators are not going to let people get out of line, but one needs thick skin to participate in any public forum, especially when the team is underachieving.
I thought about asking you all about page length, but I doubted I could reach a consensus. I can set the number of comments per page at any value. The trade off is that just a few comments means extra paging, but too many comments per page means long scrolling.
Is there a general feeling what we have is too long? Or is it too short? Or about right?
Molina’s new contract is for three years, but it does not start until 2018. Three years, $60 million.
The big difference is that Cruz played catcher, first base and third base EVERY year while coming up through the system. Other than a couple games in the OF, a TLR Special, he worked on the other positions regularly in drills and in games for years without interruption. He did NOT start to diversify defensively AFTER reaching the majors.
Bottom line, when Cruz reached StL, he was already properly prepared for how he was going to be used.
P.S. Regarding “hitting up a storm,” how will Kelly ever get a chance to get in a groove being nailed to the bullpen bench?

Had the Molina situation ended with the first incident, I would not have written about it. After the first incident, it was discussed among the parties and even Bill DeWitt publicly expressed his disappointment. Yet, it did not go away because Molina fired another volley. No matter how it is spun, this is not a good situation for anyone.
Molina’s long-term status has been known for years. Yet, Kelly has never played even one inning at another position since he was pulled off third base (for very good reasons) four years ago. If you are suggesting they take another player at the MLB level and start trying him around the diamond to see if he can handle it, more games are going to be lost. MLB is not supposed to be a test bed. That is what the minors are for.
In other words, if the Cards had any plans to play Kelly elsewhere, we should have seen it long ago. Or if we see it now, it will be a clear admission their advance planning was inadequate.
Which player is that?
While I have been doing other work the last few days, I could not get out of my head wondering why Molina is doing what he is doing. I put all my possible theories in one place.August 2, 2017 at 12:03 pm in reply to: Less and less demand for traditional sports writers #29359
