SERIOUSLY, THIS DYE-HARD CARDINALS FAN!
WHAT WILL HAPPEN THIS WEEK, MO?
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.

Thanks for taking the time, Mo!

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.
