This actually makes a lot of sense


Would make it more likely that the best teams play in the title game. Would be interesting to see how they work the schedules.

Re: Goldschmidt to Cardinals

Don't like this trade because Goldschmidt kills us and we own Weaver. Sure would be nice to have an extra draft pick to trade because "reasons."

Re: Rule 5 draft/40 man roster

Saw a tweet that Minnesota isn't going to put Tyler Jay on their 40-man... lefty reliever, 6th pick in 2015 draft, throws low 90s. Might be worth a look, though he has struggled in the minors - has had some shoulder issues so that may be related.

Looking into getting a new desktop for work, doesn't need to be super fancy. Budget of about $500. Really only need the bare bones of word processing and web browsing. Need to have plenty of hard drive storage as well to transfer files, etc. from my old laptop. Suggestions?

Yes, he makes some serious head-scratching in-game decisions, but the Cubs also won a flipping WS just two years ago.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Saw some Cards fans griping on Twitter that an announcer said Javy has the edge in the MVP race because he plays 3 positions. They argued “so does Carpenter”. It amazes me that they think Carpenters defense at 1st, 2nd and 3rd is even in the same stratosphere as Javy at 2nd, 3rd, and SS.
