What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Well, shit just got real boys. The Cardinals are the perfect trade partner. I'm sure trade rumors will go wild now.
“@BNightengale: Rafael Furcal will undergo elbow surgery next week, ending his season #stlcards”
Trade them that sorry ass Kinsler.
It will definitely be interesting to see how this plays out. I kind of have a feeling they'll keep their farm depth and ride Kozma and hope he doesn't snap back to normalcy.
I don't see anything actually happening trade wise to fill that hold immediately. Afterall, they already planned on starting without Furcal. I could see them starting the season as is, seeing how things are going and then making a trade during the season based on their current situation. If they are still in it, but their SS position is really hurting them, then that would be the perfect time for them and the Rangers to have these discussions about Elvis.
That being said, if Taveras is available, I'm all for trading Elvis.
Are you in LUV with Taveras?
Dont think they would go for Taveras for Elvis.....but that would be awesome
I could see them doing Elvis + a good minor league arm for Taveras. Though I'm a homer :-P
If I'm JD I'm on the phone trying to discount Kozma and make STL foam at the mouth for a fantastic 2 years of Elvis.
Is life expectancy 26 now?
There is no way that after an offseason full of trade rumors involving Elvis and/or Profar that either is going to be traded now. It's not gonna happen, regardless of who is available... with 1 exception; Giancarlo Stanton! If Miami takes Profar and a couple other blue chippers for Stanton, I'd do it in a heartbeat and I would then give him and Elvis HUGE extensions to keep them here for a long, long time. Other than that type of trade, Elvis and Profar aren't going anywhere for anyone anytime soon.
Elvis is worth more than Taveras. Look at what it cost KC for Shields. Elvis is a young AS ss with 2 years of cheap control.
In case anyone is unaware of this site... there is a blog up at LSB right now discussing a swap of Profar for Tavera straight up. http://www.baseballnation.com/2013/3/7/4075368/jurickson-profar-oscar-taveras-mock-trade-cardinals-rangers
In my opinion, it's very close to a good trade for both sides, but I think Profar being a better defender at a premium spot and switch hitting makes me think he is more valuable than Taveras. But only slightly.
Just wondering, who do people think is more valuable right now... Elvis or Profar?
Elvis is probably the better player right now and next year, but he's then free and probably very expensive to resign.
Profar will probably be very good, but he is still a prospect. He is very young and has all of his years of control left, but there is still a slim chance he won't turn into the player we think he will.
With the way the MLB seems to be moving right now I'm pretty sure Profar has more value. 6 years of cost controlled SS with Elite ceiling vs 2 years of what are likely to be very good SS.
As far as Elvis for Taveras I'd guess both teams would say no. Just my first inclination. I'd be tempted, sorely tempted, to do it right now.
Profar-think Thomas Diamondor the Mayberry kid orSmoak. Screw him-sign Elvis
in a trade you could get more for profar then you could andrus
No you couldn't. Now move along.
hmmmmm, rent elvis for 2 years (probably the 5th best ss in baseball)
control profar for 6 (the #1 prospect in all of baseball)
You gotta love the people who come with "sign elvis"......as if boras has not already said no deals until FA, and good luck come that time
Furcal was considered "iffy" and he was on the final year of his contract anyhow, so the Cardinals already had a replacement on hand, with a backup as well. Kozma hit over .300 last season as a replacement for Furcal after he got injured, and is considered solid on defense. (His total bWAR was 1.3 in only half a season.) They're not going to be desperate to find another SS.
Is a "trickydick" the same as a DILDO?
Your sorry team is going down this year. Have fun with your Nolan Ryan antics you idiots.
Pretty sure you posted the same thing last year when you signed CJ and Poo-Holes.
Good luck with Hamilton's oscular konitis or however the fuck you spell it.
