 WHAT WILL HAPPEN THIS WEEK, MO?

Image result for john mozeliak questioning www.cardinals.com .

ST. LOUIS — That’s right, the annual Winter Meetings are next week.  Here are the areas in which he will concentrate.

Cards’ General Manager, John Mozeliak, has to do one of two things this week. 

1) Get busy! Sign another good outfielder & snatch him up early for our club.

2) Make a plan! Get ready to pounce early on the free agent outfielder that is available now — CHC Dexter Fowler.  Cespedes resigned with the Mets Tuesday

Fowler would be a good STL fit, batting in the leadoff slot.  You’re right Fowler IS a Cub, but we could handle that.Ck the free agent activity right now.  • Hot Stove Tracker

It’s time to do some serious wheelin’ & dealin’ – you know we really need an addition to our outfield. MattyHo (Matt Holliday) and Brandon Moss are both free agents and we lost Jeremy Hazelbaker on waivers.

Starting pitching is on our wish list too. MLB.com’s Phil Rogers talkin’ Cards a dding pitching at the Winter Meetings.  

Third baseman, LAD Justin Turner, is getting a look/see by our Cards too.

It’s time to make some Mo Magic!

AND, “WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT, MO?”

Woo hoo! United Cardinals Bloggers get the opportunity to ask Cards GM, John Mozeliak questions each year.  Mine was pretty basic.  It’s below.

The remainder of the UCB question are posted too.

 2017 Blogger Questions 

Thanks for taking the time, Mo!

Mary Clausen (MLBVoice.com)

Jayson Heyward is now a Cub. Heyward made that “Card’s aging core” comment in December, 2015, so some time has passed. However, it still seems to be a current topic of discussion in the baseball world. As a loyal Redbird fan, his comment totally offended me. I immediately wondered: What does Mo think? What did you think about Heyward’s comment  – did it even bother you?

 

The answer is no. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. In a way when you look at our club, we have a younger group coming, but there’s no denying the core of this team that had the success from 2011 on is getting older. It’s our responsibility to look at ways to get younger and more athletic and that’s why we’ve developed heavily in our international and domestic scouting departments.

FROM CARDINALS COMMUNICATIONS -

A NEWS RELEASE 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARDINALS NON-TENDER PITCHER SETH MANESS;

TEAM’S M.L. ROSTER STANDS AT 39 IN ADVANCE OF NEXT WEEK’S WINTER MEETINGS

ST. LOUIS, Mo., December 2, 2016 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they did not tender a 2017 contract to Seth Maness, making the right-handed relief pitcher a free agent.   The Cardinals Major League roster currently stands at 39 players as the team prepares for next week’s Winter Meetings.

Maness, 28, was drafted by the Cardinal in 2011 and made his Major League debut in 2013, helping the Cardinals to a National League pennant and World Series appearance.   Maness owns a career mark of 17-10 with a 3.19 ERA in 244 career games pitched – all as a reliever.   Maness appeared in 17 postseason games for the Redbirds, going 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA.

The North Carolina native endured an injury-shortened season in 2016 that led to right elbow surgery in August.   He was 2-2 with a 3.41 ERA in 29 games this past season after having surpassed 70 games pitched in both 2014 and 2015.

ST. LOUIS — WOW! This is a big, big time to be in St. Louis!  No Worlds Series here this year, but other excitement is certainly brewing.  A  $220 Million Second Phase to Ballpark Village was just announced.

A 550,000 Square Foot Project is set to enhance BPV.  A 29-Story High-Rise Luxury Residential Tower.  Think about it – to be able to watch a Cardinal’s game from your living room. Whoa! 

Office space too. In fact, this office space is the first addition of office space in Downtown St. Louis since 1989.  Thousands of jobs will be created! Whoa again!

This phase will take into account the “Village” part of Ballpark Village.

It’s a dream coming true, right Mr. DeWitt!
