    I agree. High level catcher and a top of the rotation starter and bring back Quintana.

    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 am willing to bet that Zacharie outperforms the 216 ranking.

    Illinois 87, Eastern Illinois 57 Postgame

    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.

    As you mentioned, Perrine didn't make it yet. Brad left one open intentionally. Goode is out for some unknown period of time.

    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.

    Season Predictions Thread

    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.

    Chase Brown Heisman Watch

    Love both. On tenacity, I take Chase. On ability, I think Rashard. Maybe a recency bias, but I will take Chase.

    Well, I guess I don't need to expect the defense to stop anybody going forward. That's ok, the offseason, if done well (please, please, please) could be HUGE.

    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...

    I hope you are wrong too. If they want to use the Phillies model, they need to focus on the two pitchers at the top of the rotation.
