    Comparing Wong to Fowler on AVG/OBP/SLG, Fowler is only ahead slightly on SLG. Combine that with a much higher K rate, Wong is clearly better at this point this year. And if defense is included Wong’s and Dejong’s value are greater, and Fowler’s less. But enough about Fowler, as I see no need to beat a dead horse AGAIN.

    Lane Thomas now has a nickname, “Sunday”, because that is basically the only day he starts.

    Is wRC really the most accurate way to compare players? By traditional stats, I think it should be:

    The top 2 are pretty clear with Ozuna and Goldschmidt, 3)Dejong 21 hrs/56rbis, 4)Wong, 9 hrs/44 rbis, 5)Fowler, 14 hrs/44 rbis

    It seems our focus is on Carps struggles, but he and Fowler are neck and neck for strikeout %. I wish they would go with the young outfielders and sit Fowler, but that is all it is. A wish.

    Whatever became of playing your hottest players. Let Carp ride the pine and play Edman at 3rd, Thomas in CF, and Fowler in RF. I agree that I would like to see Arozarena more, and Fowler less, but Fowlers contract says otherwise.

    I believe they will add Woodford after Memphis’ season ends. He could be a valuable part of middle relief, or a bullpen game, if needed.

    Are there any reports, velocity wise, on the short season pitchers, or 2019 draftees? Any standouts? I know that some will be down a bit after a long college season. Also, Taveras and Pacheco appear to throw hard, but I have yet to see their velocities.

    Is Bader ready to return? With his gold glove level defense, t would be nice to catch him on a hitting streak. 6 homers since being sent down.

    The 2nd Run is on Edman. Advance to third, and score is on Edman lack of an arm. Great idea playing an infielder in the outfield.

    I wonder about Ramon Santos. He seemed to have some promise in recent seasons, and had a bad 2018. Now. his strikeout rate is way up. In fact, in his last 3 games he pitched 5 innings, retiring 14 by strikeout. Wow!!

    Edman is the backup to every position. Hopefully we’re up 10-0 tonight so he can pitch. The Not So Secret Weapon.

    I feel for Thomas. Hits a clutch grand slam and triples, plays one more game, then sits.

    How about a top 3 lineup of:

    Edman-CF
    Edman_LF
    Edman-RF

    Although it doesn’t give Arozarena or Thomas to play….

    Perhaps Sosa and Garcia for Duffy and a lefty reliever, or a lefty reliever prospect, although that we probably wouldn’t need to give both prospects, or they include a better prospect or player.

    I am guessing O’Neill will get a rehab stint soon, assuming he is close to returning. Arozarena and Thomas have that time to get at bats.

    I like either Fowler or Carpenter DHing. The defense improves either way.

    With 4 free agents likely departing, Robinson being outrighted at some point, Woodford and Montero being added to the 40 man roster, the Cardinals might have room take a player in the rule 5 draft this November. Unless multiple injuries occur, Sosa likely won’t be back next year as well.

    Let’s play guess the lineup.

    DH- Fowler
    CF- Thomas
    1B-Goldschmidt
    LF- Ozuna
    SS- Dejong
    C- Molina
    3B-Carpenter
    2B-Wong
    RF- Arozarena

    The Cards have a logjam of outfielders, and with Sosa out of options next year, that seems like they would be good trade chips. And the way he is playing, Carlson is on the radar for sometime in 2020.

    I wonder how bad JMart was hurt? Thomas may play more either way.

    Let’s move on. Most of us agree Thomas should be playing regularly. If after today you disagree, so be it. Thomas has helped us win. Isn’t that what it is all about?

    Johnson City and Memphis hitters yanked 5 homers each. JC still managed to lose, unfortunately.
