    Verhagen will likely be back. The only hope we have is that his injury was why he was terrible. Romero has options, so I doubt he is DFAd.

    This conversation gets repetitive.

    I would hope that Dejong continues his hot streak, and may be a trade chip. But we really don’t have much shortstop depth, and Winn would be slated for AAA next year.

    There is no need to talk about moving players positions yet. Walker may be the lone exception, as he cannot play third. And AGAIN I would trade virtually anyone for the right player or players in return. But with all these rookies with many years of control, there is no rush.

    I think Paniauguas addition is damn near a lock.

    I like Thomas’ stats versus lefties. 36.1 innings, 35 hits allowed, 2 walks and 42 Ks. I think some team would draft him. He almost made the big club out of spring training. He’s much better than McFarland.

    Paniaugua, Thomas, and Gomez make the most sense. I’d be on the fence about Pinder, although I’d like to see him moved up to AAA. And as was noted above, there are many DFA and non tender candidates.

    I don’t understand why Hence hasn’t been allowed to ramp up to a higher pitch count? I have read where he has a very high swing and miss rate in all of the low minors.
    By now, he should have had his endurance tested. If and when he pitches more to weak contact, he could be an electric starter. Also, it’s a shame he can’t be seen on Milbtv, as Palm Beach doesn’t have video broadcasts.

    Out of curiosity, I wonder what his ETA might be at best? Late 2024?

    Let’s keep the mojo going. Another sweep? At least take 2 of 3.

    New top 100 prospects is out:

    Pretty si,Olaf to last list. Although thought Graceffo may have dropped off the current list, but I honestly think he may be tiring after 100 plus innings and jumping all the way to AA.

    7 Walker
    62 Winn
    63 Hence
    72 Burleson
    73 Graceffo
    79 Liberatore
    93 Herrera

    Herrera has 18 ABs in his career. It is far too early to say he isn’t our future catcher. Knizner is a backup in my mind. I had hopes he would be a hit first catcher , but his play this year has not been very good.

    I hear some others disappointed by Liberatore. Thompson has improved greatly from last year, and there is no reason Liberatore cannot duplicate that.

    Looking forward to Hence pitching tonight. Hope he gets promoted.

    Any info on Matzx? Maybe he had surgery? With the addition of Montgomery and Quintana that gives us 6 starters not counting Matz and Flaherty. Sounds like those 2 aren’t likely coming back, or in a relief role at best.

    I didn’t realize Davila got promoted to Palm Beach. 5 walks, but no runs allowed. I think he could be the next Tink Hence, who hopefully will be very good.

    I wonder how the rotation will go? Who is the odd man out? Pallante or Hudson? Quintana pitched Friday, so he could pitch as early as tomorrow. Montgomery pitched Sunday, so he would Fridays starter possibly.

    Austin Allen may not be a bad pickup for a backup catcher. He has 4 times hit 20+ homers in the minors. Probably AAAA though.

    It’s ironic that Montgomerys first Cards game will be against his old team, maybe Friday.

    Montgomery could show improvement coming to St Louis, and he already good.

    Good trade. A down side is he is a Scott Boras client.

    Not sure about Cho’s defense, but I meant to note that Baez has 4 stolen bases in 4 games.

    I still prefer getting Clevinger or Snell. And a reliever or 2. Syndagaard would be nice too, with not much needed to
    Trade for him.

    Baez hits first homer this year. Vargas hits 2 for DSL Cards. Anyelo Encarnacion has unusual stats. 24 runs scored, 19 hits, obp of .506

    I see the Cards making an offer, but not enough for the Nats.

    Wow, this brings the Brewers down a notch without an elite closer.
