  1. 53 Man Roster Projections

    Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of a prediction?
  2. Route-Running (Nelson, Bennett, and Getsy)

    I wouldn't say there's any one thing in particular I'm looking for. In general, I don't want to see a lot of wasted movement. You'll generally see it more in bigger receivers than you do in smaller receivers, smaller receivers generally have a bit more flexibility. You see it more in the feet, but it shows up in the hips as well. The best route runners are generally considered smooth, which means they don't have a ton of extra movement. No extra steps, body not flailing around, etc. You also need a receiver who sells the route they're making. I don't know how many times I've seen a receiver half arse a route, and his counterpart doesn't have any trouble diagnosing play routes. If your receiver isn't selling a route, why would the DB defend against that route? Janis had a pretty good sale on his TD reception, but he's pretty bad overall about selling his routes.

    Copy and paste the URL address, and let the forum do the work for you. It's pretty easy.
  4. The STL Cardinals Thread - #FireMatheny (61-56)

    I've got little doubt they're going to look for it, I just don't see one that's going to be readily available. Honestly, the next impact bat that might be available won't be available until the 2018 offseason. I know we've discussed Josh Donaldson ad nauseam, but outside of him I just don't see anyone making their middle-of-the-order bat available. Maybe I haven't dug far enough. I'm skeptical that they'd put two "rookies" into the rotation. I'd imagine that the top 4 is already locked, with the last spot likely a competition between Reyes and Weaver.
  5. The STL Cardinals Thread - #FireMatheny (61-56)

    I'm still not totally sure they're willing to move him, I think I remember reading somewhere where they think they're going to be contenders next year. They got off to an absolutely sluggish start, and they're only 3.5 GB of the Wild Card spot. I like him, but I'm still not convinced that the Jays are willing to actually move him. Are Bruce/Martinez really an upgrade over what we have, especially when you factor in their contracts? Neither one will have draft picks attached to them, which is nice given that the Cardinals don't usually go after those type of FA sans Dexter Fowler. Both are likely at best 2-3 WAR players, and probably going to get least $15M/year. Honestly, I'd almost rather hope that Piscotty rediscovers his swing making $1M.
  6. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    I wish there was halfway decent Chinese food in my town...
  7. Preseason Week 2: Ravens vs Dolphins

    How has Marlon Humphrey played so far? I know I liked him quite a bit coming out of Alabama this year.
  8. 2018 NFL Draft Pre-Season Rankings

    @Scout where do you fall in Josh Allen's accuracy concerns?
  9. The STL Cardinals Thread - #FireMatheny (61-56)

    Then I guess the next question is, who do you propose we target via trade?
  10. Alex Smiths future

    That's my biggest problem. The list of teams who are likely interested in his services is going to be rather short. I can see 3, maybe 4 teams (Arizona, Denver, and Washington) being interested in them and I'm not convinced any of them would deal a 2nd round pick for him.
  11. The STL Cardinals Thread - #FireMatheny (61-56)

    I don't think anyone would disagree, but where is that coming from? Alex Reyes is about as close to off-limits as it gets, at best we'd get pennies on the dollar for him. And the only real notable trade piece we have is Carson Kelly. Are you willing to trade a potential elite defensive C with a strong bat that you can plug in for the next decade? If not, where do you go beyond that?
  12. The Poker Thread

    Never got into it, but wanted to. Where to start?
  13. The STL Cardinals Thread - #FireMatheny (61-56)

    Barring something drastic happening, our Opening Day roster is pretty much set. C - Yadier Molina 1B - Matt Carpenter 2B - Kolten Wong SS - Paul DeJong 3B - Jedd Gyorko LF - Tommy Pham CF - Dexter Fowler RF - ??? SP - Carlos Martinez SP - Mike Leake SP - Adam Wainwright SP - Michael Wacha SP - ??? CL - Trevor Rosenthal RF seems like Stephen Piscotty's to lose assuming he recovers his swing. Although, I'd imagine the Cardinals will continue to give Randal Grichuk an infinite number of chances to win that position. Outside chance Harrison Bader or Tyler O'Neill win that starting spot. SP5 seems like Alex Reyes or Luke Weaver, or at the very least a combination of the two.
  14. The STL Cardinals Thread - #FireMatheny (61-56)

    He's not your traditional 3B, which I understand where you're getting at. But I'm not sure whose going to be available that you're sure he's a clear upgrade defensively. Maybe you call up the Rangers and see what they'd want for Adrian Beltre? They're going in a transitional year, and could be willing to move him. He's not quite what he was defensively. Any idea what the Rangers would want for him @DalCowboyzRule? I know Evan Longoria has been a rumored target for the Cardinals, but given that he still has 5 years, $86M I'm not sure the Rays are really motivated to him. And if the Cardinals did acquire another 3B, what do they do with Jedd Gyorko?

    I know it's the offseason and all..but the soccer forum has more posts than the basketball forum.
