Been interesting watching the Complex Cardinals. Will be good to catch Julio Rodriguez rehab and hoping Joshua Baez soon plays.
Believe you’re outnumbered on this one Brian. Pick made no sense. Get as snarky as you want.
It’s ok with me if they want to totally waste a draft pick on what amounts to a bullpen catcher and no harm in signing Strauss as NDFA.Clearly picking a non hitting catcher who also doesn’t appear strong defensively makes little sense. Possibly they plan to release a couple current bullpen catchers.
Brian, with 7 catchers already at Complex team and 3 with each of the full season clubs I think the issue is why waste a pick on this catcher? Think they could have used still another pitcher so tend to disagree with your comment. Each pick is significant. Agree to disagree.
Hard to understand drafting a catcher that can’t hit AND can’t throw out base stealers
With good command he could be fast riser.
Seems so many both pitchers and hitters up a level higher than should be.
I think Machado’s ship has sailed. Been around now several years and his play has regressed.
People forget about the 40 man roster limit so It’s not that easy to get Jose Robson playing time or Heineman. As for Antonini I see him going to PB as the frontline catcher as there are only 2 catchers there and Sanchez will rejoin Memphis when Molina is activated. In saying that I do think Antonini is more highly regarded than Most think.
Guessing Hurst to Alternate site
Cabrera is major part of bullpen and Oviedo will be major starter very soon.
Trades more likely. Can you say Merrifield?
What has Hurst shown in his minor league career to warrant being added to 40 man? Not impressed except for a few of his AB’s this spring. Thomas has at least shown some power off bench in 2019 before injury. Needs to play.April 12, 2021 at 11:31 am in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 9 thread – Sunday, April 11 vs. Brewers #157882
Oviedo should go to rotationMarch 31, 2021 at 7:26 pm in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 1 thread – Thu 4/1 at Reds #156689
I’m betting O’Neill 5th and Carlson 7th
Outfield weak spot and I hope they pursue a top notch center fielder next off season if not sooner.
Good to see from Sosa. He seemed to relax after he made the club. I was there today and he seemed like a different player. He actually did hit a 3 run homer on backfields in a B game earlier in the spring.
Memphis is perfect destination for Gorman. He could alternate between second and third with the presence of the versatile Evan Mendoza who can play any of the 4 infield positions. Schildt described him as a “Swiss army knife”.March 7, 2021 at 6:55 am in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2021 #155340
Agree. I thought Santana would have been excellent protection in case young hitters never come around or in case of injuries.March 6, 2021 at 12:58 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2021 #155325
Don’t like deadline deals. Usually you have to overpay in talent while now there were good players available without depleting the farm.
Mendoza was invited and Herrera is on the 40 man. Julio Rodriguez is the question mark.
SOMEONE needs to find out if catcher Eodriguez is injured. He is obviously the one missing.
Don’t forget. This is spring training for Memphis too as they are slated to start on time.
Julio Rodriguez injured apparently?
Noticeably missing catcher Julio Rodriguez
