Trade them both. Right now. Fleece some idiot GM. Do it, Jedstein. Please.

#22681 A Look Into Ten Years Ago...

Also this:

Jim Callis: I still think Jim Riggleman did a decent job of juggling trying to preserve Wood while chasing a wild-card spot. Prior's mechanics and work ethic are so far ahead of Wood's, I don't see him getting hurt. I could see Prior winning 15 games and striking out 250 batters this year. Not a lightning-round brief answer, but hey, it's Mark Prior.

I just don't get the love affair with Reed "My bat is really slow now" Johnson. He cannot catch up to good fastballs, let alone ones that range into elite. He should be the LAST option in the 8th/9th when hard throwers tend to be on the mound.

Mather has shown a few times he can hit anyone's fastball (struggles with offspeed). He should be your #1 PH option against closers.

#8405 NL Central 2012 Predictions (Pt. 2 of 6) St. Louis Cardinals

Posted by Crockett on 23 February 2012 - 12:40 PM

I have the Cardinals at 74-78 wins. No joke. Berkman is not going to repeat his magic at 36. Beltran has 50 year old knees. Furcal is aging. They have no one in CF who can play defense. If they don't go crazy hot at the end of the season and instead go .500 over those games, they're an 83 win team. Nothing special.

Subtract LaRussa and Duncan as well? This team is destined to be a MAJOR disappointment.
