Congress is a little late to the game. Negotiations (if there really were any) have come and gone. It is MLB setting arbitrary and capricious rules.
Will Mikolas be ready at the start of 2021?
I’m guessing that if Cishek wants to play next year he will find a job. His history of consistent success is rare.September 26, 2020 at 12:57 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2019-2020 #142024
My guess is Jack’s $5 million arb estimate for next year has taken a serious hit.
Looks like 6 full minor league years unless I am interpreting the rule wrong

Isn’t Robles a minor league FA (if not added to the 40 man roster) at the end of the season?
#20 tonight. On pace for 60+ if it was a full year.
I think it is going to be hard for the Cards to win this trade using a WAR calculation.

Huge positive seasonal run differential almost eliminated in one night.September 15, 2020 at 10:30 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #42 – Mon, Sept. 14 at Brewers (DH Game 2) #140286
Gscott – a little caught up in the moment? I think Ponce’s game of his life was his 7 inning no hit major league debut.
Find the attitude for a chance for workouts strange compared to college football for example. Maybe it is a difference do to the sport involved but top college football teams will take everyday possible to practice.
Wasn’t the player’s union the one complaing that there needed to be more done to protect the players?
Not sure how stat cast works but I’d be curious how they have Carlson with a predictive 4 homers. It is not ĺike homers are the same as line drives hit right at someone.
I will never forget my first in person Cardinal game. The excitement and anticipation of the crowd when Brock got on first base was incredible.
I dont understand why they continue to let Carlson struggle. I realize there are no minor leagues but there are reasons you dont bring guys up before they are ready.September 6, 2020 at 7:30 am in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #30 – Sat, Sept. 5 at Cubs Game 1 DH #138883
My concern about Waino was not specific to tonight. Even if it was, the fact that he pitched well wouldn’t make it the right decision.
How dare someone propose that the players get paid!
Sounds like a non sense rule since other non 40 man roster players can be in the 60 man pool.
So when Seijas was outrighted he was sent home from Springfield?August 31, 2020 at 9:09 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #25 – Sun, Aug. 30 vs. Indians #137999
I do appreciate and admire what Waino did. That doesn’t inhibit me from also worrying about the longer term.August 31, 2020 at 12:56 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #25 – Sun, Aug. 30 vs. Indians #137841
So Waino is now Nolan Ryan?
Might want to check that math Brian. 39 is definitely closer to 40 than to 37.
I hope DeWitt isnt paying Shildt to cater to Waino and Molina. If Shildt doesnt have what it takes to get out of “a bind” like that he shouldn’t be the manager.
What is the concern? See Bob’s comments on what happened after Waino’s high pitch game last year. So just because Shildt isn’t concerned I shouldn’t be?
Yes .500 ball should get us into an expanded playoff. I think there are only 5 NL teams with winning records.
Mud, I disagree. If you look at TNC ranking history very few relievers are ranked very high. Even fewer that are below AAA. There is a reason for that. Even when they are fortunate to make the majors (even on a full time basis) there impact is usually limited both from a single year and a career aspect. Elledge may be different. He may not.August 30, 2020 at 10:29 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #25 – Sun, Aug. 30 vs. Indians #137752
I cant condone having a pitcher that is nearing 40 throwing 122 pitches. Makes no sense.
I think I must have spent too many years in the military – there is no need to mix politics with your job. It is prohibited in the military and sports should be smart enough to keep it out as well. These players (of all sports) have such opportunity to do things off the field/court and get it big publicity I think they damage anything they could do by bringing it to the job.
Cant keep up with rules. Sosa is activated but in Springfield. Does that mean he was ootiined?
Of the group above I believe only Sanchez and Williams have been optioned this year
