Re: 2017 Be the GM Thread

Someone pointed out that Ozuna drove in 124 runs last year while batting fourth behind Gordon (.341 OBP), Yelich (.369 OBP), and Stanton (.376 OBP) and will now be batting behind Carpenter (.384 OBP), Pham (.411 OBP), and Fowler (.363 OBP). And on top of that, he won't have a guy hitting 60 home ru...

Re: 2017 Be the GM Thread

We should probably be doing cartwheels & lighting fireworks over this Ozuna landing. I didn't quite realize the year he just had. He won his first Gold Glove in 2017 in left field. He finished first among all four-hole hitters in the NL (minimum 400 at-bats) with a .548 slugging percentage and ....

His mother, Gretchen, was diagnosed in May with ALS, a debilitating ailment also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Fewer than 30 miles now separates her from Piscotty's place of work. "I think it will be easy and convenient and frequent for her to be able to come out and watch me play," Pisco...

Re: 2017 Be the GM Thread

Shouldn't Fowler bat leadoff instead of 3rd? I see 3-4 being Ozuna(unless he cant hit 35+ HRs) and Dejong I haven't seen anything to indicate Fowler a far superior leadoff asset to Carp, particularly when Carp hasn't been near as effective anywhere else in the lineup. Fowler did show real productio...

Re: 2017 Be the GM Thread

Sounds like the plan is Ozuna in Left, Pham in Center & Fowler in Right.

Hopefully Fowler will enthusiastically embrace the plan.

Re: 2017 Ex-Cardinal Watch Thread

The Cubs continued to bolster their bullpen, agreeing to a two-year contract with veteran right-hander Steve Cishek on Thursday, a source told MLB.com. The deal is pending a physical.

The Cubs have not confirmed the deal.

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

I think they need to get a Priest to do an exorcism of the entire grounds of Busch III right field, immediately. Our last several starting RF'rs have initially had tremendous success then, after some time out there, tragedy. Taveras, Craig, Piscotty. Get a Priest out there.

Re: Political Dugout

Doug Jones winning the runoff against Roy Moore came out of nowhere. Exit polls were not in his favor. He went from down 4-5% to up by nearly 2% in the span of 45 minutes. And Nick Saban got twice as many votes as the margin of victory. :lol: But seriously, Jones didn't even flip a single congressi...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals Rumors Thread

Plenty of rumors today linking the Cards to Manny Machado and the Orioles being much more open to the idea of moving him. :o What I'm reading says he wants to move back to shortstop. I guess we move DeJong to 3B, platoon Gyorko & Carp is back at 1B? One must continue to wonder if Wong will ever...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals Rumors Thread

The Cardinals have had talks with the agents for relievers Addison Reed and Brandon Morrow, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Cubs sign Brandon Morrow to help bullpen. Jeff Passan reported the Cubs and Morrow have a two-year deal in place. https://sports.yahoo.com/cubs-sign...

2 years, $11 million for Gregerson with a $5 million option that can vests into a $6 million third year.I'm not sold on this. But it could just be visions of Jonathan Broxton being marched into games he had no business being in dancing in my head. If Gregerson doesn't bounce back, and further diggi...
