Re: 2017 Be the GM Thread

Yeah. 4 years, $56 million for Lynn. LOL.

35 pitchers threw 180+ innings last season. Only 10 had a better ERA than Lynn. He has far more value than $14M a year. And if he does fall that far, shame on Mo for not grabbing him.

Yep. Cards have a need and have the capital. No excuses.

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

Rawlings announced that Yadier Molina, Buster Posey and Tucker Barnhart are the finalists for the National League catching Gold Glove Award. The winner will be announced during a televised award show on Nov. 7 @ 8 p.m. CT on ESPN. Not surprisingly, no other Cardinal even sniffed consideration in '1...

Re: Official 2017 PostSeason Playoff Thread

Verlander's going to have this thing on lock down tomorrow night.

Also, I'm not ready for baseball to be over. It's going to be a long winter.

Re: Official 2017 PostSeason Playoff Thread

Morton faced the minimum through 5. Wood threw a no-hitter through 5.

Springer breaks up Wood's no-hitter with a solo shot in the 6th.

Re: Official Chicago Cubs Thread

I love how quickly the Cubs front office went from heroes to villains. And it wasn't necessarily lying. It's very possible to create a scenario where Epstein was willing to allow Maddon to keep his staff, but where Maddon felt it wasn't a worthwhile use of his political capital to fight to keep them...

Re: 2017 MLB News & Tidbits Thread

10 years ago this would be a huge trade for the Astros, does Verlander have anything left in the tank? Um, I think hes answered my question..9-0 since trade with a young verlander like e.r.a....Houston wouldn't be here without him. The Astros have won every game that Verlander has ever pitched in f...

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

I'd have preferred Greg Maddux but I think I'm okay with this move. I'm actually surprised they didn't promote from within, I suppose Hickey is definitely going to CHI then? My understanding is that Hickey was the Cardinals' #1 option until Maddux became available. But it's also possible that they ...

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

And there we have it. Ken Rosenthal and Jenifer Langosch both reporting that Mike Maddux is set to be named the Cardinals' next pitching coach. Team intends to announce later today.

I don't know if I'll ever have enough money to justify spending that much on tickets to a baseball game.

Re: 2017 MLB News & Tidbits Thread

The 4th, 5th, and 6th best teams in baseball this season have or will replace their manager this offseason.

At this point, more postseason teams have replaced their managers than non-postseason teams.

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

I'd really rather not promote from within purely because I feel that a steady stream outside voices bringing different ideas are necessary to keep the organization improving. But Hickey was really a perfect fit for what the Cardinals wanted to do with the role. Lots of experience developing young pi...

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

There's a lot of conjecture that Jim Hickey has agreed to join the Cubs, possible to be announced tomorrow during the travel day. Which would be an incredible bummer.

I find this one very, very surprising: Adrian Gonzalez A No-Show For World Series http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/la-sp-dodgers-gonzalez-shaikin-20171023-story.html It's not that unusual for injured players to not be with the team.
