Re: The Cardinals

Cubs fans are in no position to take the high ground on racial equality. Having witnessed what Baker, Hawkins, Fukudome, etc. went through, I can only hope we have progressed and these examples are the miminorities of our fanbase as are the Cards fans highlighted here. Cubs fandom is very large and...

Re: Politics & Current Events

It's cute how so many media observers (even liberal ones) think that moderator/host prep matters so much. Real time fact checking doesn't even horsefeathering matter. When will it just be accepted that asymmetrical disinformation campaigns aren't about fostering debate? It's about flooding the airw...

Re: The Cardinals

Honestly is there a more racist fan base in sports outside of people who like NASCAR? I watched people on this forum make gay jokes for years. There are great and terrible fans for all teams. Bader is an excitingly young player that is fun to watch right now. I don’t think any reasonable fan expect...

Re: The Cardinals

.380babip and making overall worse contact this year than last. Clearly his numbers are totally sustainable. His offensive profile is kinda Almoraish Yeah, but there is just something about Bader that the Cardinal fans like more than Almora. https://discourse-cdn-sjc1.com/imgur/uploads/default/orig...

But he can definitely play 2B and possibly corner OF.


Yeah, he was drafted as a 2B and I know he can play there. Not surprised he's good at 1B when he's capable of playing harder positions defensively.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-17-18

Not a great list for sure, but just going with the consensus doesn't make you stand out or get clicks. It's not a great list, but who cares about the middle or bottom part of the list. Keegan Thompson at #2 is laughably high. I do like Jonathan Sierra and he has a nice swing and some talent. I think...

Bob Bote: In the ninth inning, I was downstairs folding clothes. I watched every pitch until [Ryan] Zimmerman got his base hit, then I got up and I said, 'The game is over.' I started folding some laundry. https://uproxx.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/mad-men-gif-not-great-bob.gif?w=650

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

it's kind of worrying that the only remedy we've heard suggested so far is for him to not play baseball. i'd almost feel better if they just said he's going to have surgery in the offseason. It's WAY better that surgery isn't necessary or a possible option right now. Trust me on this one -- just lo...

Tommy might not be our best PH option even if he's the only position player left on the bench.


So what I think you're saying is you want a pitcher to PH in that scenario?

90-92 fastball for Lange, on a good day, isn't super inspiring. I've been surprised that after all the curveball buzz, that he hasn't K'd more guys. K-rate hasn't been bad, or anything, but given how few A-ballers can hit average curves, much less excellent ones, I'd have figured he'd have a few mo...
