    E.D. I missed that. I would love to see the stats across mlb on the results of those tests.

    They logically should be doing antibody test on intake. If 10% had it on intake then there is no reason to think another 10%-20% didnt have it in the last 4 months.

    If intake tests is the issue why do those who already have intake test results not practice?

    You would think mlb could afford the 15 minute test

    Yes, BDW may have conflicts of interest as well.

    Regardless they are getting constantly tested and will be around others who are getting constantly tested.

    Miller’s conflict is that he is supposed to be negotiating on the behalf of all players but he has a strong personal interest in the outcome.

    Seems like Miller has a conflict of interests!

    I would wager most of these players are more secure in camp, playing, and getting tested regularly than they are at home and certainly out in the general public. But there is a lot of research on people’s inability to properly calculate risk so I guess this should be no surprise.

    I remember in the past after saying Mendoza was more than capable defensively at SS being highly criticized with people citing the fact that if was capable he would be playing there.

    The managing partner means nothing in terms of ownership percentage. Jeter owns just 4% of the Marlins and I am pretty sure he is the managing partner. Pat Croce used to be the managing partner of the 76ets but only owned 2%.

    Probably a better thread for this and if it can be moved please do so.

    There is an easy and legit explanation for BDW’s statement. You can look at the situation and say that his group invested $100 million and now profits maybe $50 million a year off that investment that now is worth $2.4 billion. Or you can look at as a $2.4 billion asset that only returns $50 million a year which in the scheme of things makes it not a very profitable business.

    As a side question, does anyone know what % of the Cardinals the DeWitt’s actually own?

    The English language is amazingly complex. I read that in 2 innings Ponce only threw 4 strikes. Only rereading it did I get what was meant. This is not a criticism of the writing because I am pretty sure it is grammatically correct even for its intended meaning.

    Any chance you’ll have someone in Springfield if there is any press access given?

    Or maybe use Lane’s 2019 major league season and his 2018 and 2019 minor league stats. Players do have the capability to get better.

    Was thinking today of the irony that will exist with the Cardinals playing to an empty stadium and right next door people will packed like sardines in ball park village drinking and watching the game.

    I dont see how Mendoza is considered ahead of Robertson unless they think a) Mendoza can show more power than he has in the past or b) He can transition to SS full time. .270 minor league hitters with no power normally dont have much of a future unless they can play a decent SS. Even then it is tough.

    Our farm system is weak but not that weak!

    One name not mentioned even in the 60 man prediction was Kramer Robertson. He seems like a guy who could help sooner rather than later.

    I am sure this has been discussed but I missed it. Are guys not on the ML active roster (whether that be 30, 28, or 26 men) need to clear waivers to be put on the taxi squad? Do guys on the taxi squad use an option (if applicable)?

    The Cards have not shown much success drafting and developing non college hitters.

    No one said he could throw it over the plate at 100mph. I will hold my enthusiasm

    This season is too short to be able to withstand slow starts by Fowler and Carpenter!

    Brebbia is highly under rated. This is a huge loss. Will miss almost of all next year as well.

    One bad of all this is no injury rehab time available
