Re: The Cardinals

Every time I watch the Cardinals, they seem extremely unimpressive. Their defense looks really, really bad. I know they've had some good games and they were (are?) leading the league in runs scored. Maybe I'm bad luck for them and I should watch all of their games.

....how many players in the league are currently playing at a 3-win pace? I really want us to have like 20-25% of them.

When do we start worrying about his and the rest of the FO's lack of extensions? I know theyve pretty much said that its a formality, but I was kind of expecting to hear word in April.

Re: The Cardinals

So the Chicago Tribune pays to run an article written by unabashed Cardinal fan Will Leitch. The theme of the article is "yeah the Cubs are good but the Cardinals always succeed as underdogs". Why the hell would the Trib run this article? http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/columnists/ct...

Re: Schwarber: Fully torn ACL and LCL. Out for year.

Wouldn't placing him on the 60 day stall his service time clock? That seems like a good idea. No, you accumulate service time on the 60 day DL. In theory they could option Schwarber prior to DLing him, but that would be a grievance the Cubs would and should lose. It works beautifully in The Show's ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

So the Dbacks managed to trot out 3 completely different, completely terrible uniforms over our 4 game set.(I'd say 4, I've always hated their old uniforms, but I'm letting them slide since they're a godsend by comparison). I didnt even realize they were doing new uniforms until that series. Turns o...

Re: Schwarber carted off field

They were testing his ACL on the field, and it really didnt look like it passed that test. I thought he was gone for 2016. Very happy to hear, hopefully the mri goes as well.

The at bat he had before the injury was a really great at bat, too :/
