If your GM builds a roster that doesn't fit the philosophy / style of the coach that was hired by that same GM, then your GM is a moron and should be fired.

Re: The Cardinals

The Royals have hired former Cardinals manager Mike Matheny as a special advisor for player development. Matheny will "contribute in a variety of areas that will include player development and scouting." It's worth noting that manager Ned Yost will be entering his final year under contrac...

Re: 2018-19 Offseason Rumors

Any possibility of coming up with a trade with the Yankees based on Russell and Chatwalk for Gray? What would need to be added from either side to make it work?

Re: Addison Russell

I didn't take exception to anyone's reaction to Russell, just to those who were outraged at Rizzo. So, why did you take it so personally? Disappointment isn't outrage Invoking SJW in a negative tone says a lot more about you than it does for anybody that didn't like Anthony's quote. And your self-p...

This is one of the most terrible threads I've ever read. First off, screw Addison for being worse than the soap scum on Yadi Molina's shower shoes. If that wasn't bad enough, now we're criticizing Rizzo for not making strong enough of a public display? I don't think you can get any more self righteo...

Re: #NotAllPitchers

I wonder if any White Sox fans are looking over at the Mets rotation with DeGrom, Thor, Matz, and Harvey in 2015 and starting to feel a little less comfortable about the future. Or heck, our 2003 rotation with Prior, Wood, Zambrano and Clement.

They had a good month, which led to them taking the interim off of his title. I'm betting they're stuck now with Matheny 2.0, all due to an ill-timed hot streak.

Re: homophobe (Daniel Murphy), incoming (to the Cubs)

So am I reading this right that we may also be sending cash back to them? I keep seeing that it's Murphy for Monasterio and cash or ptbnl. How does this impact us staying under the cap for the year?

I would assume that if the Brewers claimed him, they'd offer next to nothing in return and hope the Nats pull him back. The claim would be purely to prevent anyone else from being able to claim him.

Yeah, but there is just something about Bader that the Cardinal fans like more than Almora.

Does Bader like to drink and drive or beat his wife too?

I've missed Lester's last few starts. Any theories as to what's going on? Results seem more than what we would expect from regression since the break, but I don't know if velocity is down, is he fighting their some discomfort, etc...

Maybe Yu's just following the example set by Roger Clemens at the end of his career. If you only throw half the season, you can make it to the playoffs and still be fresh.
