The Cardinals unwillingness to trade away players until they are a strained asset is by far their most annoying quirk. I was pretty shocked that they actually traded Bader for a good return.

Happy to have the Rainbow Warrior in the PNW. I hope they can keep building on what they have going up there.

Brewers are so well-run.

The Cardinals let Wong go for nothing because their owner is cheap.
I don’t think they’re well run.

Moving Hader was probably the right move tangibly, but I’d argue intangibly that ruined their clubhouse’s morale, wasted a season they should have been contending for the division, and missed the POs.

Good process, bad results. Hader was pretty awful with the Padres as well.

Not every decision works out.
