Without bombast or sensationalism, Bernie points out that Molina’s actions add to the manager’s internal difficulties – or perhaps just draw more attention to them.
Ah, but extend Lynn for how many years and at what annual salary?
My personal belief has not changed in years. Lynn will fetch more money and years as a free agent than the Cards would ever give him. In my view, the only question at this point is trade vs. qualifying offer and the latter route will be pretty much confirmed if he is not dealt today.July 31, 2017 at 7:20 am in reply to: Cards in July – Buyers, Sellers , neither or both? #29138July 30, 2017 at 11:58 pm in reply to: Cards in July – Buyers, Sellers , neither or both? #29136
Cubs putting the hammer down, adding Tigers closer Justin Wilson to go along with Jose Quintana.
With addition of Justin Wilson, Cubs have four members of bullpen with recent, successful closing experience.

Scott, I will take a shot.
Rosenthal. Of course, the rub is in what return would be considered “decent”. The Cards need someone to close this year and next and my bet is that it will be Rosenthal. As soon as he becomes a free agent, he will leave for more money elsewhere.
Relief. I don’t see Montgomery and Sherriff as difference-makers. I like the idea of using minor league starters though, but as you hint, 40-man space is a real concern.
Rule 5. In fact, 40-man roster management is precisely why Cordoba was lost. I haven’t looked at the protected list lately, but put it on my to-do list.
Lynn. I believe his compensatory pick would be following Competitive Balance Round B, or just before the third round.
Jaime on the move again…

It just took you about a year longer than most of us to come to that conclusion. 😉
Ray needed a few stitches, then returned to the park, showered and is back resting at the hotel.

You got me there! I was initially going to start a new thread, but instead decided to put it here.
