It seems that the bullpen is a crap shoot (more than other positions). Years that look like the bullpen will be a strength, throw a lot of money at it, things go wrong. Other times, when it's filled with a bunch of unknowns, some rookies are lights out. JMHO
I only watched the first half, will watch the second tonight. I was concerned with the passing. It seemed deliberate and telegraphed. I fear going against a longer, more athletic team that there will be a lot of easy breakaways. I hope it is just getting to know each other.
I know most that read this board watch A LOT more games than I do. Is SS the biggest need? Isn't Edman good enough? I am more worried about catcher, starting pitching (a true #1) and at least 1 outfielder.
Had a hard time actually picking losses. Too much kool-aid. 9-2 non-con, 17-3 con, 26-5. B1G tourney champs. Final 4, controversial ending in semi's cost us. NCAA changes a rule to correct in the future.
How would the Cards fans react if Mo (Girsch) picked up Contreras and 1 front line starter (either trade a major league outfielder and several minor leaguers or through FA) and did nothing else of consequence? I was unaware of Contreras' relationship with Yadi. Maybe he would like to be his...
