Pugs, what happened to those Packers in San Francisco???
Nightmare of a game, Rat! I know we GB fans are spoiled, but it’s becoming painfully obvious to me that we need to start looking for our next general (QB) very quickly. Unfortunately, numerous more pressing issues exist on the other side of the ball. It’s been so long since we’ve had that real tough smack you in the mouth football team. I miss Chuck Cecil!
No I don’t, CC. Edman is a player you just don’t let go of. Some players are simply untouchable. On our Cardinals, Goldy is touchable….Wong is touchable…..O’Neill is touchable….Marcell is very touchable….Carp & Fowler, heck you can maul those two……Edman, Flaherty and Thomas are untouchables. As much as I would hate to part with Hudson, I would in an Arenado trade.
Yep, me and Rat poked our heads out the other day and did not see any trace of our shadows……thus commencing an abrupt end to our hibernation. Thanks Scotty!
You may lose one of them, GameCard. The two I don’t want to lose are Edman & Thomas. But how many Thomas’, Carlsons and Liberatores have we seen over the years who did not materialize or ended up being mediocre players? Too many to count. You get a shot at someone the caliber of an Arenado and you just have to pull that trigger. He is that rare monster buck.
Sweet post, Sheepdawg!! I know these guy’s main purpose is to amuse, entertain and perform well for us, but it’s always nice to get an inkling on just what kind of people they are. The only real horses a** I ever met in the entertainment industry was Richard Dawson of ‘Family Feud’ and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ fame. That guy’s head was 4 times the size of Barry Bonds’….if you can believe that.
Madison now, ATSOTC, as my wife’s little brother and his family have taken up residence in my old home in Milwaukee (Whitefish Bay). I had Diz and Austin’s phone numbers at one time……would love to hear from those rascallions. Where are you at now, ATSOTC? Go Birds!
Thought so, ATSOTC……as you fit right in with those 3 Amigos.
Surely you jest, ATSOTC. Great baseball people and pretty darn swell chaps to boot….all three of them. Welcome back PhilSkill!!
This is madness. I’m beginning to think that the best thing for baseball may be an “anything goes approach”. Anything legal that is. Secret and unsecret cameras everywhere trying to steal signs….players and coaches shouting out what pitch may be on it’s way to hulking roid riddled batters……pitchers openly lubing up balls on the mound with Vaseline…..Colorado(where it’s legal) Rockie players firing up dubbies in the dugout during the 7th inning stretch….what ever happened to “baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet”?
I have no doubt that you would be the best trash can banger east of the Mississippi, Rat. Except for one thing. I think once you started wailing away on your trash can “once, sometimes twice” as you say, you would find it impossible not to use that as a lead in to go right into theme songs of some of your fav tv shows. I could see you banging out the theme song of ‘Streets of San Francisco’ for fastballs, ‘Mannix’ for offspeed stuff and maybe the theme tune of ‘Bonanza’ for an upcoming knuckler.
Have any left to send to an aging, yet still devastatingly attractive soul, Minuteman???
Bring back Easton, Austin, Diz and maybe a cameo appearance by U F A N, and I’m coming out of my annual winter hibernation two months early. It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years. I believe Easton had 2 young sons, who would now probably be in high school. Austy has an infant daughter, who would now be like in the 5th grade. Diz had a very nice niece, who most likely still is sizzzzling hot! And U F A N had his beloved Miami Hurricanes, who still pretty much suck in all major sports. Welcome home, Easty!!!
Or, will Cora only be involved?
Cora is going to pay a huge price
…..maybe even more than what the Houston *Asterisks got levied with yesterday. If I’m Manfred, I’m making Cora manage the Mets for at least the next 3 years…..that’ll get him!
I actually agree with you, CardsFanInChiTown. And that is why Arenado will not be a St. Louis Cardinal. I doubt that Colorado would consider anything less than a Gorman-Knizner-Gant-Bader package for Arenado. And it’s also unlikely that Mo would part with those four……but I sure as heck would…..in a heartbeat.
In a perfect world, the cubbies 2016 squad would have preceded the Astro and Red Sox teams in this mess. And the cubs cheating would have been so egregious that Manfred had no choice but to strip them of their title. Then we’d be looking at what……about a 115 year drought right now. Hey…..has anybody looked into this possibility?
Any proposed trade for Arenado better have Gormon in the equation, or Colorado will not even look Mo in the eyes. Gorman, Gant and Knizer at least gets their attention….but the Cards are going to have to even sweeten the pot a bit more to get it done.
Pugs, given the way former cubs players have worked out for the Cardinals, are you sure you want to sign a former cubs player?
Great question, LACardFan! Having spent only a couple months in the Windy City, Castellanos cannot quite be classified as “damaged goods”. He’s getting out of Dodge in just the “Nick” of time.
I too loved Scotty’s post, stlcard25. Hopefully, Mo does too and will bring this guy into the Redbird nest.
It’s not even close….I’ll take Castellanos over Marcell in a heartbeat. Over the last 15 years, the cubbies have been signing Cardinal players ( Edmonds, Marquis, Lackey, Heyward, Jon Jay, Motte, Taguchi, Descalso, Mather, Miles, etc.) left and right. What cubbies have we signed during that period? Dexter, Grudzielanek and Theriot….whoopie do. It’s high time that we started signing some of their players who still have plenty of gas left in the tank. Let’s go get Castellanos.
The Cardinals had their elite player…..right there for the taking……and Mo didn’t nab him. Close your eyes real tight and imagine this—-Christian Yelich in a St. Louis Cardinals uniform. If that thought doesn’t send an excited shiver down your spine then check pulse to see if you’re still with us. And I don’t want to hear that gibberish about Mo saying that Yelich wasn’t on the table when the Cards dealt for their other outfielder(Ozuna), FIVE WEEKS PRIOR to the Yelich trade to Milwaukee. Think about it. Does anyone actually believe that Mo would admit to the truth…..that all he had to do was to have made a serious play for Yelich and it would have been Christian heading to St. Louis instead of Marcell. I wonder if Mo’s pursuit of Ozuna instead of Yelich two years ago, has ever kept him awake, tossing and turning…..I bet it has….or let’s hope it has.
It just blows my mind that our new catcher is not receiving any love! Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce Edgardo Alfonzo Rodriguez…….Yadi’s eventual replacement.
One day we may struggle to recall the young hurler’s name who came over from Tampa in the EdRod ( that’s “Edgardo Rodriguez” to the layman) heist.
I do think it’s kind of neato that there is an “era” in our new pitcher’s (Liberatore) name. But on the other side of the coin, there’s also a “rat”.
Sweet sweet suggestion to Rat, CardinalinFrance! And even sweeter than than your simply marvelous proposal to The Esteemed One, is what you and the lovely Mrs. CardinalinFrance are rustling up for din din this evening…duck pate de froi gracias….roasted over an open fire New Guinea hen con gratin daughinois….are you kidding me! Truly a meal fit for a king. Other than being treated to a 84 yard Rodgers to Adams td strike, I could not think of a better way to usher in a new decade. Instead of replacing Rat’s ice cream delicacy with a pic of his pooch, the incomparable Whitey Herdog, how about we get twice the bang for our buck with a shot of them both? YHer( that’s “Whitey Herdog” to the layman ) with a Klondike bar protruding from her mouth. Go Birds!
Indeed, MM3. In a perfect world, all labor compensation would be based on a commission only basis like auto salespeople receive. You get paid what you produce. I worked a few commission only jobs as a very young man and fared quite well considering it was the late 80’s- early 90’s. I earned right in the neighborhood of $800 a week while in college, managing a boiler room. Then right out of school, before I figured out what I wanted to do, I delivered bottled water for Hinckley & Schmitt for roughly 55K…..100% commission based.
This thread seems to surprisingly be petering out here at The Cardinal Nation. Let’s hope it’s not losing steam in the Commisioner’s office too.
AdGar had to be DFAed…..it was the right call. Indeed, Brian, very nice indeed to see Pads swing on by. As far as FAGalde goes…..don’t be surprised to see Alexander “The Great” break camp as a member of the Memphis Redbirds. And then shortly thereafter, get his first (but certainly not his last) cup of coffee with the Big Club.
The Price is not right. Just say “no” to David Price. No need to have one of our young pitchers blocked by this guy.
