I mean this whole [expletive] charade only holds up if we believe that the nominal goal of teams is to at some point win baseball games. It's getting harder and harder to believe that. Otherwise, even tanking teams would be in on Harper and Machado.



I'm curious why the Cardinals gave Andrew Miller $25M if they don't care about winning games.

Just a gift, because they like the guy?



You mean less guaranteed money than they gave Brett Cecil? And had a writer proclaim they were tired of being cheap? As the team has spent less on payroll to this point than they have last year?



It's not a complicated question.

Why did the Cardinals give Andrew Miller $25M if they don't care about winning?


Because they care about the appearance of trying to win.

Hahahaha

It certainly increases your odds of being an entitled, narcissistic [expletive].

Pardon the paraphrasing, and I've said this before, but all this talk about owners are cheap and analytics are bunk and/or a conspiracy is Cards Talk with better grammar. We've come full circle.

If we don't sign Harper, does that mean our season is over?
