Doesn’t make sense to invite LaRussa to return until you choose a new GM.
Capel will be an interesting rule 5 protection decision.
Is Nogowski’s upside higher than Ravelo’s? It seems the Cards prioritized Ravelo.

Gscott – that is all in?
Brian, I’ll double down. Does it makes sense to exhaust your 3 top relievers with a 4 run lead and your most important series of the year starting tomorrow? 2 run lead – maybe. If you dont trust any of the other guys get rid of them. It simples makes no sense.

I dont get why you pitch Gallegos and make him unable to pitch tomorrow. If are lesser relievers can’t hold a 4 run lead we are not a good enough team to go to the playoffs anyway.
Sosa (if eligible)
And why is Sosa suddenly not eligible?
If we can’t beat the Cubs by taking the majority of these upcoming games with them we simply dont belong in the playoffs.
No analytical system here and I am an analytical person. But I see prospect rankings as more art than science. My rankings can change daily (though not much).
Jeske, so how do you normalize age and proximity to the majors with performance? Does it make sense to give last years performance equal weight to current year performance?
Our bullpen has been good but they are also gassed. You have to get more than 5 out of Wacha when he is not struggling. Maybe you could justify the ph with runners in scoring position but not there.September 14, 2019 at 6:47 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2019 #106213
The question com Ravelo is whether he will stay on the 40 man roster over the Winter. I think most people thought not initially but he is making a case.September 14, 2019 at 11:39 am in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2019 #106188
Minuteman, what does a player’s salary or experience have to do with the argument that the player’s performance is consistent with being a 3B on a championship caliber team?September 14, 2019 at 11:35 am in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2019 #106187
27, did you read the article I linked? The key is the definition of “full seasons”. Do you realize that Shane Robinson was signed (and played minor league ball) in 2007 but his 4th option year was used in 2014?
Pretty sure at some point he wasn’t trading Kelly.
If those are the only guys Mo would trade Carlson for he is a worse GM than I thought.

Sure gamecard, which Cardinal exec told you that. Everyone is available at the right price. They traded Kelly because he was blocked for the next two years and they were able to fill a need. If Ozuna was signed Carlson could be blocked and for the right player they might move him.
A lot of presumptions on my part but maybe this signals the Cards making a definite decision not to sign Ozuna. (Either based on Carlson’s performance or Ozuna’a). Thus no need to showcase Carlson for a possible trade.September 13, 2019 at 12:15 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2019 #106069
Here is the link.to the VEB analysis

27, VEB did an analysis an determined that Sosa should qualify for a 4th option year (an obscure rule that applies usually to young latin players put on the 40 man roster at a young age like Sosa was).
You have to pinch run for yadi!
Not criticizing the votes of others but extremely surprised by the early support for Fernandez. Mostly because he seems that he will be relegated to relief and our prospect rankings (as most others) have seldom given such high rankings to relievers – even potential lock down closers. Do those voting for Fernandez anticipate him being our closer next year?
