I think that you have an act, and that your act is not having an act

I just ran down to the cafeteria-style restaurant to pick up some dinner and bring it back to the still poorly-lit workroom, but now I’m back on patrol again, waiting for phone calls and/or emails. Not that y’all necessarily care about all that, but just wanted to give you the visual as to how things shake out right now.

Unfortunately, at this point, the front office has been all but incommunicado. We’re still waiting for our time with them. It’s my understanding that the Cardinals are not convinced that Schmidt-to-LA is a completely done deal, but ultimately, if Schmidt himself WANTS to go to LA, it will be hard to convince him to do otherwise.

So anyway, this is a long way of saying I don’t know nearly as much as I’d like to right now, and hopefully not nearly as much as I will within an hour or two.



I’ll keep my fingers crossed for that Schmidt-to-LA deal to fall through. He’d look nice starting behind Carp in the Cards rotation.

Any word from Marlins camp on possibly dealing Willis? It seems like Chris Duncan and a young pitcher might be attractive to them but maybe that’s not enough. I guess I’d just like to see a lefty in the rotation next year and Willis would be the dream.

Thanks Matt, as always for the scoops. Sounds real…exciting. Hope you brought beer.

Is it really possible that the Cardinals would sign Barry Bonds? I just can’t believe it… Wouldn’t he ruin the chemistry of the team?

This may be one of those situations where no news is good news. The prevalence of overpriced mediocrities on the free-agent market is a warning sign against getting too frisky with acquisitions during the winter meetings. I’d much rather the team did nothing more this week, than take on a bad contract for the sake of “doing something.”

There’ll be time to sign contracts and cut deals when the winter meetings are done, and nobody is better at it than Trader Jock.

Doing what little one can to increase the general stock of knowledge is as respectable an object of life, as one can in any likelihood pursue.
