    I’ll be surprised if there are any changes.

    Nothing positive will happen until we have new owners.

    The answer as to what it will take to fix the Cardinals has always been right in front of everyone. Drum roll, please……………New Owners!

    I would simply like to know who decided Burleson would be a fine hitter?

    Did you watch the same game I did? Mikolas gave up 5 runs in 4.1 innings. He flat out sucked. The bullpen gave up two runs. That is hardly fantastic. It was a bad game all around.

    This is the kind of start the Cardinals will get out of Lynn most of the time this year.

    Yes, I’d trade Edman first and either Donovan later or at the same time.

    If this is true then it’s another chuckle for me. Nearly every person they acquire is between
    mediocre and bad…Gray as the exception I’m not a detractor or a fan of Marmol. My only concern about extending him would be what did they see from Marmol that would suggest to them that he was going to lead them to success?

    Impressive list of pitchers but are any of them going to be any good or is it simply numbers.

    It seems to me if he’s not playing and he is weeks away from facing pitching then it is serious situation. Si it two weeks or twelve weeks. The Cardinals are rarely forthcoming with honest information about injuries. So, I’ll believe it isn’t serious when he’s in the lineup.

    I’d like to know just how serious is the Edman situation.

    Yes, I suppose he was a fan when he was at Country Day. It is easy to be a fan but now he is the owner and his priorities have shifted. His top priority now, every season is to make a huge profit, which he does by keeping costs low and revenues high. He only cares about winning to sell tickets. That’s why every off-season is a halfway measure, including this year. They sign two guys right out of the chute so fans think they are serious. (They are not and never are). Gray was their marquee acquisition for this off-season. NOT ENOUGH. If they were actually serious about building a WS team then they sign Gray, trade for Cease, sign Montgomery, sign Hader, trade for Soto and more. It’s not that Junior doesn’t want to win…everyone wants to win. The problem is he doesn’t care of they lose. As long as profits are high then the fans can stick it as far as he’s concerned. I long ago resigned myself that my team will always be mediocre until we have new owners.

    gscottar:

    The more I think about it, your point of view about extensions is not without merit. Maybe you’re right. He did decline last year, slightly but a decline. Perhaps the Cardinals are waiting to see if he collapses altogether this year.

    It’s Goldschmidt that doesn’t want an extension. He wants to go out and get some real money from a team that has a chance to win the WS. He knows that will never happen in St. Louis.

    Anyone could use Goldschmidt. He’d make a great DH and it would help the Cardinals with their bottom line.

    Well, I never thought of that before but the owners really are on top of things. If you finish in last place, lower the payroll. That’ll solve everything and the best part of it and I’m sure they’ve thought of this, is that they can’t finish any lower than last so we can’t be worse than last year!

    What I expected; same old cheap Junior. Could be another long frustrating year.

    The article was amusing. “St. Louis as an appealing destination for free agents?” (permission to chuckle) Appealing only if they have no interest in winning.

    Beganovic’s article confirms what I’ve said for years. No matter how bad the Cardinals are, there will still be 3 million plus buying tickets. There is no reason for Junior to panic and spend. If they finish last in 2024 they will still draw over 3 million. Junior owns the best team in baseball if the goal is to make millions in profit every year. Spoiler alert: That is Junior’s goal.
