The other frustrating thing about all three of those guys...The Three ****sketeers, is they were coming of either down seasons or in the case of Holland coming off a late seaason implosion. Given the variance in retred releivers, I'm completely fine signing or trading cases of beer for these types of guys and seems like Joceketty did well doing exactly that. Key difference is they should be dumpster dives and not big money or legit assets given up. Even worse is they were supposed to be relied up and had/have the inerta of sunk cost money tied to them.

Old school is often still valid. Some of our best closers were failed starters.

Nationals brought in Holland in a tie game and the only out he recorded was a wild throw in which the umpire called out the runner for being outside the baseline when the ball didn't even hit him before he ultimately walked in the go ahead run on 4 pitches.

Carp is mashing “Pujols like”. The dude was completely lost for months this season. Despite that hole, he’s now in the conversation for NL MVP. Go figure. But, I like it.

His stats this season compare to some of the worst in Pujols' time in STL.

That shows how ridiculous Pujols was in his prime.

no shit. Pujols was amazing when he was here.

Pujols had the best 11 years of any baseball player, ever. No one was better. Not Ruth, Mantle, Musial, no one. Any comparison to that will always fail in comparison.

Guess morale has declined since they took 2/3 from us in St.Louis.

Why did they call up Wisdom? Has he stopped being a strike out machine?

Munoz to the DL and they had to burn another spot on the 40 man (sigh) after putting Gregerson on the 60-day.

still doesn’t explain why the call up now? Has he cut down on his strikeouts? If not, why do we need a strikeout guy killing rallies when this offense finally is starting to show some life?

We kept the guy exposed and no one in baseball wanted him for waiver wire money. Can’t we just expose him again this off season? Or does a player have to stay on the 40 man roster a specific amount of time when added?

He was still striking out about the same rate as always, but he has been more productive overall (.842 OPS). I was surprised it was him, but that has to be a good feeling after getting snubbed a bit in September last year.

they are playing some good baseball. Young guys in the pen are coming through for the team. WC or not it’s a lot more fun watching this team since Matheny was fired.
