    At one point Lou Gehrig was a Sub.

    Then he became a Super Sub.

    Then he became one of the all time greats.

    What this boils down to is whether or not Ozuna accepts the QO. If he doesn’t, which apparently is likely, then its anybody’s guess as to what the 2020 St. Louis outfield will be like.

    And for those out there that think Fowler had a bounce back year, what did he hit, around .239???

    Looks like the Cubs are going with David Ross.

    Is that a mistake by the Cubs?

    Are the Cubs making a mistake here?

    The anticipated pitching duel between Scherzer and Cole got off to a rocky start. Houston two runs in the 1st and then Zimmerman a petunia in the 2nd.

    2-1 Houston after two innings.

    What makes Ozuna think he is worth 7/160? He hit what, .241 this year? And was injured too.

    I bet he is lucky if he gets 3/50.

    From what I saw of Madison Bumgarner this season he doesn’t appear to be the pitcher he was 2-3 years ago. He is sort of like Kershaw in that respect. Although Kershaw did have good numbers in 2019 I don’t think, from doing the eye test, that he’s the pitcher he was 3-4 years ago either.

    Isn’t anybody concerned that Bumgarner could turn into another average pitcher and not be worth the $$$ he is going to command?

    I hope he does. But I doubt it.

    Then again, two sub-par years in a row for us so who knows what kind of offer he might get elsewhere. Free agency wasn’t on fire last year.

    I agree with your comment Minuteman3. Surely to Pugs he will be healthy coming into ST next February.

    But if he comes in with another ailment or injury, or suffers one during ST, well, probably time to just point him to the door.

    I hope and pray that the Cubs do hire someone from that list. I think that would be a break for our side.

    From what I see our hitters have the same problems most hitters in all of big league baseball have.

    When they get two strikes they still swing like a maniac. They don’t choke up a little. They don’t shorten their swing. Their attitude is I am still trying to hit a homerun instead of just trying to put the ball in play.

    Remember, not only did we have a record number of homeruns this year but I suspect the total number of strikeouts was near record totals as well.

    Just remember, the more homeruns they hit the more $$$ they will make one day. Who cares if they strikeout, right?

    Reds announcer Chris Welsh said last year that it wasn’t too long ago that it was embarrassing to strikeout. Now it’s the norm.

    So, as I type this, is Reyes healthy? Or does he still have some lingering health issues? And if so, is he expected to be 100% recovered by spring training?

    And I shut down the Cardinal Nation site for awhile after I realized what was coming. Didn’t want to see all the crying as the comedy unfolded for everybody else.

    Notice the lack of posters there for awhile?

    I stand corrected GameCard. My error.

    Maybe he could be someone good for us.

    Small sample size, however.

    I gave up on them when it got to be 5-0. Turned out to be 7.

    Let Pugs explain it to you.

    Well, what a great start. Three strikeouts in the top of the 1st by the Cardinals and then the Nationals plate five runs on us in the last of the 1st. Sayonara 2019.

    What did he hit, .281 in AA?

    He’d have to see some MAJOR improvement for him to be in St. Louis for opening day next year.

    After seeing the list I am starting to think we might want to “give in” to Ozuna a little bit and keep him around for another 2-3 years.

    Anybody know what the QO will be to Ozuna?

    And what it might take to get him to re-sign?

    What, no posts yet? The mark of a champion is to do like Winston Churchill said in his famous speech:

    Never give up
    Never give up
    Never give up

    I aint going to give up.

    p.s. I will be watching Cannon tonight though..:)
