Opinions are like… oh, never mind
Just two unrelated opinions from somebody who has far too many of them…
1. Walt Jocketty must have gotten a little extra spring in his step when he heard about the Scott Linebrink trade. As Nate Silver broke down at Baseball Prospectus, Linebrink’s not really having that great a year, though he’s been very good in the recent past. But mostly, the Brewers gave up a ton to get him — one legitimate, very good prospects and two other interesting arms. I’m baffled by this deal.
And if you’re a Cards fan, you’ve got to love it. Because if that’s the going price for setup men, the Cardinals could really strike gold in the next few days.
2. The 6:40 p.m. fireworks blast before home games is just ridiculous. What’s the point? Absurdly loud fireworks in daylight when no one is in the park yet. Um. Huh? Please, Cards marketing or promotions or whoever does this, please kill it off. Thanks.
