    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.

    I have doubts about that unless Shildt has some photographs of which we are unaware.

    Sierra hit .260 in minors, under .200 in mlb last year. All three pitchers had Era’s in upper 3’s in minors. Yes, in retrospect Yelich would have been ideal but you make the trade when it become available, not a year later with a do-over.

    And he provided that .280/23 HR season at a very fair rate of 9mill. That is not a bad price for a supposedly down year. And if he leaves then you in theory have “his money” off the books and therefore available for someone else. Yes, Dewitt opened his precious pursestrings like so many deny ever being possible.

    I’m still not that upset with the Ozuna deal. No he didn’t have an MVP season but he had a good second half and with free agency after next year I expect a solid campaign this year. None of the prospects we sent exactly set the world afire their first year in Florida and we cleared precious spots on our 40 man so San Diego can’t set up a buffet in front of our system for the Rule 5. Don’t we have the option to offer Ozuna the QO after the year? We can get back a good pick.

    Wow, just saw replay of Machado with a very dirty play at first base from last night. Ran to first inside the line all the way down and kicked/spiked Aguiar as he passed. Benches emptied. Replay and story with Yelich and Shaw comments on espn.com right now. I want nothing to do with this punk.

    If you don’t like Molina not running out ground balls you will hate watching Machado. At least Yadi has the excuse of saving his legs for catching. Machado is just plain lazy and doesn’t even try to explain it. There was a good article on this at mlb.com earlier this week. Combine that with his insistence of playing shortstop when his defence is among the worst at that position and he strikes me very much a me-first type player. I’d rather take the risk on Donaldson and keep Dejong at SS where he is above league average than plug Machado at SS and make deminish Dejong’s value by putting him at 3rd. I don’t want 2 guys on the team who won’t run out grounders or it may become 3 or 4 in a hurry. Bader is a shining example of always putting pressure on the defence by always running hard. He beat out a few routine grounders and forced some hurried throws as well.

    Too many walks his entire career. Yes, he can strike out the world. But I never want to put in a guy who I am afraid will walk the lead off hitter. I’m not saying our guys can do better.

    I’ve been hoping for brewers Astros since the teams were announced. Go brewers.

    Looks like a bad time to gamble on any Rockies pitchers, if there was one. I’m doubting the Baez numbers…maybe I am just afraid to see he is able on defence as well as bat? No way he I’d Arenedo good.

    Brian, you may recall after bitching all year in 2011 Nate said winning the World series was the worst thing they could have done.

    Is Tim Cooney done? I know a shoulder injury is major but just wondering if he plans on trying to return or if he has gone the way of John gast?

    Still so young. Mercado looked horrible after his first 2 years. I’d like to think Perez could have such a resurgence.

    Kelly at #6. Defence at a catcher trumps offense and Molina didn’t develop much offensively his first few seasons. I like Kizner but I remember being excited over Brian Anderson…I think that was his name. Kelly’s defence now could keep him in the league 10+ years.

    Martinez looked like he was way out of whack. Hard to get a close call when you look out of control.

    Pugs, that IS Mrs Perkins now. Now I’m not saying anything but if Brian would throw a 3 month pass for premium content our way as wedding gift…:) That story on the front page about the OF attained from Cle is excruciatingly enticing considering his stats so far. .397 BA as a cardinal!

    Being reported now that 3 years includes current year as the first year, effectively making it a 2 year extension.

    3 year extension. Bold, but do we send out the thank you to Stubby for all he did in the organization posthaste?
