Bullpen is in shambles without Grimm and Ramirez. mean.gifsick.gif


Wonder if we see some bodies called up soon, otherwise some starters are gonna have to go 7-8 innings in a row to get some rest for the pen.

Honestly? I think they know they don't have it this year (nor should they think they do)

So they are experimenting. How does Russell look at 2nd? Bryant in Center/Left?

I expect to see Russell play some 3rd at some point. (to bring Baez up to 2nd)


IMO, they are seeing how they can fit the pieces, and then in a year or two, that's when they will truly push in, and we won't see all the shuffling.


If the Cubs would have scored in the 9th yesterday, Bryant was going to move to first base. He woulda played 3rd, CF, and 1B all in the same game, a week in the majors. laugh.gif

Again, if everything were to work out, Almora is a tremendous Center Fielder defensively. Question is, can he hit enough?

And Schwarber is likely going to be tabbed at LF.

So at some point, movement will be needed, unless they plan on platooning a bunch, with Schwarber behind the plate some days, and Bryant in Left, with Russell/Baez at 3rd/2nd.

When Schwarber is in LF, Bryant at 3rd, and whoever is hotter at 2nd.


Or even shift Bryant to CF, Schwarber in LF, and Baez and Russell both in the infield while Almora takes a day off.


I just think they are searching what everyone can do right now, before it really truly matters. And I'm ok with that, for now. At some point, we need set lineups/positions so everyone gets comfortable with their jobs.

And also, we don't know who all truly lasts and who turns into a bust, etc.

Somewhat yes. Also we have the 9th pick in June draft so we will be adding another talented player.

More than just the 9th, the Internationals that I posted a few pages back shows even more youth Theo will be getting, to be a wave behind this wave of talent.

Yep. It's why I'm so excited. We are being built for the long haul, not just a 1-2 year window.

Doesn't mean we're done, still a lot of work to do, but Theo has done an amazing job layin the groundwork.

Arrieta 6 strong innings. Russell a 3 run double, and Montero a bomb.

10-7

And the Cards just lost Wainright for the season.

Starlin needs just 132 hits to join this list.

David Kaplan @thekapman · 6h 6 hours ago
Only players post 1961 w/1000 hits by age 25. Starlin Castro could join this season. A-Rod, Yount, Cedeno, E. Renteria, Alomar, Griffey, Cabrera.

Jason Hammel with the best game so far. 8 inn, 4 hits, no walks, 7 K's. pimp.gif

Rizzo has 60 plate appearances. Been on base 32 times. eek.gif

Bryant with a couple hits and a clutch two out 2 run single.


Reds just lost Homer Bailey for the year. Cards lost Wainright.

Some movement to be made. Cards could try to buy Cole Hamels. And Reds could try to sell Cueto. Either way, worth watching. I want Theo to stay patient, save all our assets, and just buy a FA SP in the off-season.

We'll see. But right now, 11-7, and improving every day. Get Grimm and Ramirez back, get Lester settled and the team will be in great shape.

I can't even process all this. Hammel 8 innings of greatness, now Wood with 7.

12-7 without Lester even going yet, injuries to the pen, and facing StL, Pitt, Colorado, SD, and Cincy. eek.gif

Starlin 3 more hits, team leading the league in steals, depth, clutch hitting, and we still have tons of talent growing in the minors. mean.gif

I've talked about it coming for 3 years now, but now actually seeing it......surreal. Hope it keeps goin.
