Re: “Deflections: The Roster, TV Angst, and The Buy/Sell Clause

This roster is gonna be tough to whittle down. And you forgot Vince Hunter. He just got the other 2-way deal. Take him and Kobi out of the equation, add Jamychal, and you've got 18 freaking guys signed and need to get down to 15. Not sure many of the middle of the pack guys on the roster can be packaged for more than a bag of chips via trade. I think a couple guys will just be cut outright.

Re: “PCL Championship: Memphis vs. El Paso

No bubbles burst. Thanks for the clarification. A better phrasing would have been that Edman split the season between Class A and Double A. The point being, of course, that his first Triple-A at-bats took place in the PCL playoffs.

Re: “PCL Championship: Memphis vs. El Paso

Don't mean to burst your bubble, but Tommy Edman started the season in Peoria with 155ABs in 38 games before being promoted to Palm Beach, where he only played in 17 games. An injury to Edmundo Sosa necessitated his promotion to Springfield, where he finished the year with 63 more regular season games. The call to Memphis came only because of the departures of Mejia and Valera to St. Louis. So to say he split the season between PB and Spr is inaccurate.

Re: “PCL Playoffs: Next ’Bird Up for Memphis

Also on Tuesday, the Cardinals announced the promotion of outfielder Magneuris Sierra . . . but to Memphis from Double-A Springfield. Sierra electrified Busch Stadium during a brief stint with the Cardinals this summer. He hit .365 in 13 games and set a franchise record with hits in his first nine games. He'll bring a healthy dose of speed to the Redbirds, both around the bases and in the outfield.

Re: “PCL Playoffs: Next ’Bird Up for Memphis

St. Louis promoted Valera Tuesday morning, a reinforcement for Cardinal infielder Matt Carpenter (currently nursing a shoulder ailment).

Re: “Grizzlies Still Have Big Questions to Answer in Free Agency

If we don't bring back Zach and tony, we will be a lottery team. You can't win with young second round picks and undrafted players in the NBA. This team will have no leadership and no identity. Hopefully they bring back Zach and Tony and allow them to retire here like Tim Duncan and Ginobli. You honor your vets who are still productive and can teach the young guys.

Re: “St. Louis Cardinals in Crisis: What's Gone Wrong

The biggest mistake other than the Adams trade to Atlanta was not getting serious with Sierra as the spark was there ! Giving up leads, terrible baserunnimg and lack of hitting we can over
come as this division always has ups and downs. I have heard replacing Matheny may be the answer ,but not now . My theory has always been don't fix it if it isn't broken !

Re: “Frank Deford (1938-2017)

Deford was one of my favorites, if not favorite, journalists of the last 40 plus years. And technically, I guess he was a sports writer.

Re: “Lord Stanley Comes to Tennessee

As someone who grew up watching hockey in Toronto (and no, I don't live in an igloo), I'm excited to see Nashville embrace hockey due to the great job GM Poile has done in putting together an exciting young team. I know Memphis and Nashville have an inter-state rivalry (as do Toronto and Montreal), but I'd love to see Memphians support the Predators. Your reward could be that y'all will finally see what a great sport hockey is. Go Preds!

Re: “Lord Stanley Comes to Tennessee

Are you kidding? I always thought that hockey would be a perfect fit for the typical southern fan base. We rednecks know how to throw-down when it comes to a sport with lots of action and fighting. And if there is blood and dental-loss, so much the better!

Re: “Lord Stanley Comes to Tennessee

Fun Fact: The only former SPHL (Southern Professional Hockey League) player to have his name put on the Stanley Cup was Scott Darling who played for the Mississippi Riverkings (Southaven). Scott Darling was a member of 2014-2015 Chicago Blackhawks team.

Re: “Beyond the Arc Podcast #80: Should the Grizzlies Trade Marc Gasol?

I agree that it is time for some fairly drastic steps to revitalize this team. In addition to making some of trades mentioned, and not spending money we don't have on aging veterans, the Grizz should release the poorest performer in recent years, too. That has been Chris Wallace. Pera needs to find a better custodian of his money than someone who throws huge money at cripples. He has been a poor communicator, a worse judge of talent, and an apparently weak negotiator who seems to throw out his top number first.

On of my favorite TV half hours was when Tim had Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola on his syndicated show.

Re: ““Uncle Tim” McCarver: An Appreciation

When he call on of his few Cardinals games on Fox Midwest, it's really a must watch. His analysis and overall sense for the game is astounding. He's also not shy calling out bad play and questionable managerial decisions by Cards skipper Mike Matheny. He's the Hubie Brown of baseball telecasts for sure. I wish the Redbirds would bring him in for a pregame autograph session like they used to do with ex players.
