    I meant to say win the division. Either way I don’t believe team success should have a ton of sway in a individual award like the cy

    His team did sign Cole... it’s easy to “change” positions on the topic when that happens.

    I haven't changed my position at all. I'm still against it. I can also acknowledge that MLB has absolutely looked the other way for years.

    No way he doesn't end up back in STL, I would think. Leaving is a bad career move for him in terms of legacy.

    Agree he ends up back in St Louis but I don't think a year or two somewhere else at the end of his career changes anything about his legacy.

    Yadi is so prideful I can see him go somewhere else if he thinks the Cards are undervaluing him.

    He's #2 behind Albert as my favorite all time Cardinal. It would kill me to see him play somewhere else. However, he's held the entire organization hostage in some aspects. Refuses to take days off. Kninzer needs playing time and he's not gonna get it w Yadi in StL.

    In a perfect world, he comes back and agrees to a 70-30 split next year and something closer to 50-50 in year 2. I dont see that happening

    Short season definitely seemed to help both Abreu and Freeman because WAR is so mainstream now and WAR penalizes 1B as a position defensively more with more games played. From 1990-2010, a 1B won MVP in either league 11 times. This is the first time a 1B has won since 2010 (Votto).

    Granted, a lot of those MVPs of that era were great, HOF level guys (Pujols 3x, Thomas 2x, Bagwell, Votto), but I don't think it's a coincidence that a 1B hasn't won since WAR became mainstream in the early 10s.

    Nevermind that most execs in baseball are ivy league grads that flamed out of baseball in middle school.

    Please go trade for Lindor.

    Will be really interesting to see how much power she actually has there. Doesn't seem like Denbo is a particularly popular guy around the league, and people are always leaking that he basically runs the show there. The optics of that could go from great to bad pretty quickly if they're not buttoned up.
