    Bader is on fire. Shildt may wanna think about moving him up in the line up.

    Yes, Bader is on fire. This is the point in the season where Shildt looks for an outfielder with a .400 OPS so he can bench Bader for two weeks and cool him off.

    About time to see a stat that actually has some true value, meaning, and gives an accurate picture.

    Yes!!! Because we all know singles are infinitely more valuable than walks, even though they both result in a player on first base with no out recorded.

    We also know that singles are just as valuable as homeruns, even though homeruns result in the player scoring.

    You win by hits!!! Not runs scored!!!

    Yes, I used MLB Draft tracker, which had them rounded. Also transposed the 5 & 7 in Holgate’s bonus amount. The $55k is correct.

    Hey I thought the Cards were playing today. Who are these guys mashing long balls all over the place?

    Is your lucky charm watching the game with you today?

    All three outfielders with a homerun in the same game?

    Aren’t they are weakness? Guess they didn’t get the memo.

    Actually, I forgot to figure in the overages in rounds 11 & 12. I used a spreadsheet this time.

    This does mean Graceffo received $300k instead of $500k. Using $300k for Graceffo, and figuring in the overages means the Cardinals have $74,565 in room to sign Cabell and/or Casserilla, in addition to their $125k slot allotments

    Round Slot Value Actual
    1 $3,480,000… $2,750,000
    2 $1,340,000… $2,250,000
    CBB $906,800… $875,000
    3 $675,600… $600,000
    4 $478,300… $375,000
    5 $353,700… $300,000
    6 $270,300… $50,000
    7 $211,500… $1,000,000
    8 $171,200… $20,000
    9 $153,300… $75,000
    10 $144,600… $50,000
    11 … $50,000
    12 … $125,000
    SubTotal $8,185,300… $8,345,000
    5% overage $409,265
    Total $8,594,565… $8,520,000… $74,565

    St. Louis gave Willis a signing bonus of $788,500, according to MLB Pipeline. That is well over a half million more than his pick’s slot value of $211,500.

    Brian, your article misstates how much Willis was given. According to MLB Pipeline, he was given a $1 million bonus, for a difference of $788,500.

    Din-din this way was had at Friday’s restaurant in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin……home of your champion Milwaukee Bucks.

    Pugs, I looked it up. Madison is 80 miles from Milwaukee, with not much in between. I don’t know that I would call Madison the home of the MILWAUKEE Bucks.

    Goldy now has a 16 game hitting streak. Only 40 more to catch DiMaggio.

    And he has an OPS less than Bader. And Bader can’t hit according to most posters on this site.

    I think for insurance, it has to be career ending (at least contract ending), and he has to be on the 40 man.

    We better not trade Bader by the deadline. He’s suddenly become a keeper.

    He’s a career 3.7 WAR/600. It’s not sudden.

    The bunt turns out to be a big waste.

    They usually do.

    O’Neill’s plate discipline has improved significantly this season.

    The umpires’ have not.

    Pugs, the Cardinals have nothing to sell.

    The only person on an expiring contract worth anything is Kim, and they said he might just go back to Korea if traded.

    Holgate and Love are signed, both underslot, but not considerably so.

    It looks like the Cardinals have $1,030,455 left to sign Willis and any other players that require more than $125k after round 10, with the 5% overage on their bonus pool.

    Goldy stays red hot. We can probably stop talking about trading him. If he keeps hitting like this he might get into the MVP race. I knew his numbers would come around before the end of the year. He has always been a warm weather hitter.

    He was a drag on the team during the first two months of the season.

    He has improved his OPS to tenth in MLB for first basemen (qualified hitters), which means one third of the first basemen have a better OPS than he does.

    Funny, I always receive email confirmations when I book a hotel room, whether I do so personally or through a corporate travel department, and whether I do so through the hotel directly or through a travel site.

    So, McGreevy signed for $2.75 million. That means the Cardinals have roughly $1.7 million to sign Baez and Willis

    It seems from the article that they have submissions from both the analysts and scouts for every pick. The Cardinals, as a whole, seem to be an organization driven more by scouts. If you’ve noticed the past few years, the scout in North Carolina seems to have some pull. There has been a player from ECU picked by the Cardinals in four out of the last five drafts. Plus all the UNC, NC State players, etc.

    I would guess this is one he saw something he liked, and they just went with it.
