    Edman to second gives Carp more time at 3rd. :facepalm:

    Really dumb. I’ve been finished with this management team for a while, this just further validated it. Unless they intend to sign a couple of big bats for OF and 3rd or short (LOL)...otherwise this means they think they can go with Edman at 2nd as a full time starter and that ain’t going to cut it. Just more downgrades to an already borderline team.

    He's insanely talented. Everyone that bitched about him was mostly bitching about his hair coloring and dumb shit like that. It would have been dumb to cut bait on a guy just because he's a little immature.

    Now he's past the point where you hope he can grow up. Im sure they try to move him, but unlikely in this market

    Him blowing kisses or whatever to Acuna in the playoffs last year was it for me. He isn’t missing any bats, every strike he throws grabs the middle plate, but he’s gonna concentrate on showing up Acuna.

    At age 29/30...

    The KMOX postgame show at his old bar was always the best.

    The show didn’t end until he got tired of talking which sometimes wasn’t until 1 am. And a lot of the guests were old time ball players that were bench coaches from the visiting team. They would just tell stories.

    They’re not as bad as they were to start the season and they’re not as good as they’ve been the last week.

    But the rest of the division is so doo doo they can win it. They also could finish 3rd.

    O’Neill and Carlson playing over where I thought. Goldschmidt stating to hit. The staff not being terrible. I’m offilly in the “they still aren’t good but the rest of baseball is really mediocre” stage.

    It's still so early,but so far so good. Seems like we havent really played any good teams yet. However baseball is weird this year and the expected good teams are struggling.

    O'Neill has been pretty good since coming off the DL
    Carlson has been about what I expected, but the lack of power is a little surprising
    Bader hitting too. And he's hitting breaking balls from right handers. That's huge.
    Even Carpenter is having good ABs now

    Still concerned about Goldy. He's whiffing so much. Notorious slow starter but man... lets go.

    Also - so much for Arenado not being able to hit away from Coors.


    SP is still an issue. Theyre getting good BABIP luck, but getting the job done for now.

    Pretty frustrating weekend but should’ve expected it.

    Probably had a better chance if the Padres were at full strength.

    We should have sold Reyes and Gallegos today.

    At least they've been hitting on the draft picks that past few years. Pretty exciting players in the minors.
