    Default Blow it up

    This team is a lost cause.

    I'm not far off of saying that myself. It is sad in a 2-2 game... in the 5th, you have almost NO chance of winning. Today... right now is a perfect example. If the Cardinals don't have a lead half way through the game, they just can't win. Their BP is that bad.


    I get why they traded Marco... and I'm reasonably pleased with the return. BUT... seems like we could have used a solid lefty coming out of the pen.

    9 runs for the Cards in the 8th so far, still no outs.

    I wouldn't consider Lyons or Duke horrible but I see your point haha

    I think you obviously trade where you have an abundance which at this point is SP and OF. I'd like to see them trade Grichuck and maybe even Piscotty for a prospect or two but also wouldn't mind a proven veteran RP. I think you can deal some players without blowing up the whole team, as long as you don't mind bringing up the youngsters.

    Trade Lynn and Duke. Play Pham, Wong, DeJong and Grichuk every single day and let's see how they do. Figure out what's up with Diaz.

    Duke is an interesting trade piece. Does Siegrist have value? Not sure he does.
