Carpenter may loop them over there but he seems to always have just enough to get the runner. His range and instincts are not great. He is extremely streaky. I thought just before his extension that we played it perfectly. But those extra years were a horrible idea I thought then and looks proven now. With the comment about his mental toughness…I hope the rest of the crew picks it up and he turns into the guy that can really pile it on that he has been in the pastJuly 13, 2019 at 7:50 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2019 #97808
I would do that Greinke deal in a heartbeat. I don’t think Reyes is going to pan out and if he does I doubt he’ll ever pitch past the 6th inning in games. I’d include 2 of Thomas, Arozonena, Garcia, Capel, or Williams.
I don’t have the numbers to back it up but my eyes told me Webb pitched well in games out of hand but tightened up in tough spots. Maybe go with a guy who pitched a lot in NYC. Or maybe front office wants to make voit trade look better.
I thought I read the “Baker Bowl” was a huge park when I was younger.
Edit: nope, dead wrong

According to announcers, Kaufman and Comerica are the parks that would have contained the mighty Edman shot
This one could end up going until the sun comes up in sweet southern Missouri. The wife is snoring away while I am taking in the action. I fear I may brought bad karma by the first 2 laser beams to start the inning. Dickerson ties it 3-3 with Martinez still eyeing home plate in his tracks as that shot was gone before he had time to turn his head.
It’s a good thing Mrs Perkins doesn’t read here. She doesn’t like hearing about the near misses of past near Mrs’s.
On the redbird side, Kirtly hit it on the nose both times with a deep double to show. Toerner 0-2 striking out looking bad and a hard liner pulled right to first baseman. Think misies walked both times. Ascano rbi double and a gem in the field at SS. 3-1 good guys in bottom 4
Hooks make Parsons throw a few extra pitches in the 4th but he is up to the challenge. 4ip, 5 hits, 0 walks, 69 pitches. Fastball now consistently at 89-90.
Parsons gives up lead off home run in 3rd and retires next 3 without incident. He is attacking the plate all night, no nibbling so far.
Parsons gives up 2 hits with one out before opening up his arsenal getting first pitch called strikes on off speed pitches before retiring both on soft contact. Radar gun more consistant at 92 on the fastball
Parsons works around a one out double. Batters were not timing his pitches very well. 2 ground outs and a strike out. Velocity 92 to 95 if you trust the gun. He was pitching agressively. Carlson with a no doubter deep over center field wall to lead off Springfield
I get to see Parsons pitch tonight in Springfield with the wife. Hoping the rain stays away.
Think I read Urena not going to make this start. Ah yes. Urena to DL, Yamamota, who was acquired in Yelich deal penciled in to make is major League debut.
I think I remember a poster forecasting success for Cox saying he “liked Cox in the 2-hole” causing several off colour jokes.
Indeed. We used to nominate posts of the week here. That was befitting.
The trivia question has me guessing Boris from Rocky and Bullwinkle
I’m quite fine with that scenario, Nigel. I’d love to see Gant draw more of a market with another consistent start to season than lose him for next to nothing due to him lacking an option. He was pretty much great last year for what we asked of him.
I like this. Minor league deal. Probably has opt out if he doesn’t head north. I remember being excited when Rick Wilkins a similar deal 20 years ago. He actually managed a .330 on base percentage last year in 250 at bats as his walk rate dramatically rose last year. He has won 2 gold gloves in his career. He’s not great any more but not horrible. A switch hitter. Really I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be a big upgrade over pena. I think he must be betting on the possibility of Molina not playing as many games. I wonder who the emergency catcher might be if we keep him as the only backup and he is used as a pinch hitter. I’m guessing Dejong. If I were Robinson or Munoz I would be begging to put on the tools of ignorance for an extra chance to make the roster.
Love this discussion. This is why I’ve read this site since 2002. I miss the old format that showed when posters joined. The analysis on Theo is exactly what I would have loved to give if I were more eloquent.
Jim riggleman not returning to reds organization. I’d love to have him on the coaching staff and he has cardinals ties.
It was painful to root for Kershaw and of course he let me down. Why can’t both teams lose?
Some have speculated Mozeliak as a possibility for the Mets open GM job. I’m sure that would please many around here.
