    I guess I don’t get the McGwire thing. Was it supposed to be funny?

    Would love to see McGwire get some pinch hitting opportunities. This is exactly why if i’m an MLB GM, I would have had B. Bonds on my team each of the last 2 years. He’s been willing to play for the minimum. I keep him on my bench and each game there is always one big spot where some no-chance player is coming up, where any manager would love to have Bonds come in and hit. Not sure why teams consistantly decline to have offensive threats come off the bench when there are so many available for so cheap.

    The Cards have no need for him. Does TLR remember that they have Albert manning first base?

    Thereby resetting his HOF clock until a time that more writers will vote for him?

    That Payano kids seems a bit wild haha

  6. Ferrariman 6 years ago

    lol i think its pretty safe to say that he WONT be on the active roster as a player… he’s like what 44 years old?

    would love to have Heath bell to the cardinals..would fit perfectly in pretty much the last “hole” the cardinals have; setup/closer.

    but if the deffered money from holliday is gonna be spent, id go for valverde. so what we give up a draft pick..were getting like #25 this year anyways, might as well be a 2nd rounder. not to mention this year’s draft is sort of lackluster.

    say 1 year 4.5 million with 5 million player option

    Can the cards now give a shot to Freese and go ahead and focus on the pin? We know we need work there and Id rather give young talent a shot at 3rd than “see” what would happen with a guy like Tejeda who is turning 76 next month. I like the idea.. but just think the guy would do too good in STL.

      whats up with this fettish with Freese..craig is a plus defender like Freese, has more pop, and a higher average. not to mention he is a year or 2 younger than mr.26 year old prospect freese.

      • vtadave 6 years ago

        Well Freese does have a higher career minor league OPS – .915 to .879, but I’m sure if Freese can’t cut it, Craig would be next in line.

    Khahil Greene wants to play this year? He should try to sign with the A’s, Reds or the Royals. Each of those teams had a high profile player with mental health issues-the players involved had all the support they needed to get back on the field. He’s probably going to have to settle for a split contract, though. I’m pulling for him.

    LaRussa wants McGwire as a pinch hitter… in other news, in search of more power the Royals announced the signing of Babe Ruth’s corpse. And of course Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

    Can K. Greene play the outfield? It might extend his career and the Yankees might have interest!

    • Ferrariman 6 years ago

      khalil greene cant handle the mental pressures of playing in St.louis..he might have a heart attack in new york.

  12. ArmchairGM 6 years ago

    From the Epstein interview… “If these moves that we’re working on this week work out…”

    What could he still be working on regarding position players? The opening roster seems mostly set, does it not?

  13. DGrit 6 years ago

    Or Doc Ellis

  14. Cuddy Fox 6 years ago

    Why you think the Cardinals in option of trading the best hitter in baseball. McGwire is not coming out to play baseball, but to be a hitting coach. Why you think Pujols even want to go to New York with the media there? Get off this if you think if everything goes around the Yankees. There are Yankee boards all over the place.

    That’s a lot of roster-spots . . .

    The oakland a`s had a guy who was nothing but a pinch runner. in the early70`s. I would have to look up the rosters but his last name was Washington. The owner of the A`s Charley Finley had a mule or jackass as a team mascot. He named it after the commisoner of baseball Bowie Kuhn. What a character he was.
