    CFICT, what kind of prospect do you think the Cards could get back for Knizner and Munoz? Knizner seems like the kind of guy who could put up an .800 OPS in regular playing time if needed…you’d hate to give him away unless they got a good player or two in return.

    ST25, I get the “not wanting to give up the defense” part, but they can’t win if they don’t score runs, and the way this lineup is currently constructed, that’s going to be harder to do than to prevent them.

    I would just be extremely cautious to give up much of anything for Andujar. You’re basically banking on him hitting like prime Matt Carpenter to even make him a viable upgrade. I get that the offense might be an unknown, but a guy who gives away a bunch of runs (he’s a -25 defender by both UZR and DRS) just makes those 3-2 losses…4-3 losses.

    I’d just stand pat until/unless we see that Carp is going to be out for a long period of time.

    Trading them while they still have value makes the most sense.

    Until Yadi gets hurt and you’re depending on Wieters and ?? to be the MLB catcher.

    Send pitching to the Yankees for Andujar? If he’s healthy, he would be the clean up hitter they desperately need.

    Hard pass for me. He’s worse than Jose Martinez with the glove.

    Griffin Roberts has a nice looking breaking ball. It would be nice to see him get traction this year.

    Apparently getting out of Roger Dean was good for the hitters and not so great for the pitching staff. Nice to see the lefties look good though.

    Sounds like it’s just going to be a chronic issue. Thankfully we have Edman and maybe Miller to fill in a 3rd if Carp can’t be an every day guy.

    And that is only if the pitching and defense hold up.

    Who is this Jager and when did he get replaced with Nate? I suspect the defense will be great all year and the pitching will be more than adequate. I also think that the hitting will be better than people think. This is a 90+ win team.

    I don’t know if will come in to play during the regular season but Shildt seems interested in taking a look at Yadi batting 4th. This is the second or third time this spring he has tried it.

    I can’t imagine that Yadi will hit there during the season. It has to be that they want to get his at bats in early.

    I like lineup #1 better than #2. I guess squad 2 is what we’ll get to watch if we can though.

    Seems early for a guy without a lot on his resumé. I guess this is the new normal though…betting conservatively.

    I suggest you try out my approach. Keep Reyes expectations very low.

    Unfortunately, that’s about all we can do anymore. The Cards have been cursed when it comes to top prospects.

    Cecil managed to get out of it with only one more run allowed. Cards trail 7-6. The Nats have outhit the Cards, 12 to 5.

    Cecil with the bases loaded walk and the Nats tie it up.

    Looks like Munoz gave the Cards the lead back with a homer. Cecil in to pitch.

    Dejong jacks a 3 run bomb to make it 4-3 Cards.

    I had to turn the game off for a bit. Did they say why Reyes didn’t come in?

    Washington gets a smallish ball run of their own on a double, sac bunt and a single to RF.

    Wong starts us off with something that we couldn’t get from Sanchez in October…an extra base hit. Carlson moves him over and Dejong with the sac fly for the 1-0 lead.

    Gomber settles down after the double and a walk to get out of the inning unscathed (in no small part due to a nice play by Dejong).

    It’s tough to tell these two teams apart when watching. Gomber gives up a leadoff double to Thames.

    Not a great debut for Liberatore…3 hits, 3 walks, a wild pitch, and a balk. All good for 5 earned runs and a shiny spring ERA of 67.50. Ouch

    Two solid innings from Helsley. Will he start, set up or close?

    Yes. Lol

    Nice eye for Gorman who works the 4 pitch walk. The Cards need one of he or Montero to have a big 2020.

    Looks like the game ended in a tie. Good to see Sosa with a bit of pop. He could use a good spring to give himself a shot at making the opening day roster.
