The Giants put the final nail in the coffin by winning in 2016 and by losing in 2018. Rat bastards.

Thank you Mike Shildt for giving us some enjoyable baseball in July and August.

Welp, we have an “E” next to our name so let’s get it started:

I will be more disappointed when we don’t sign Harper than all the other guys we don’t sign.

Machado is gonna be our "Almost got him, but don't" player this year

I doubt they even make a play for Harper

I say they say sign Donaldson and a closer.

We will be in the final 10 teams wooing Manny. Reality: there's no way they offer the richest deal, nor do they intend to. Placate the loudest bunch of fans, shoot for 2nd tier. Cardinals Way

Sign Keuchel and Donaldson. Keep Jedd as the backup that he is.

Not much else needs to change. Work Reyes into rotation slowly. Dangle JMart.

Put Yairo back in AAA.

Let Chud and Waino walk.

Entertain idea of signing Kelly but NO OTHER RELIEVER please.

Really disappointing final week.

But another fun season to be a cardinal fan. Only one meaningless game and another year with a winning record.

Thank you Mo for putting together another contending team.

Donaldson for nothing but money will be cool.
Sign Rosenthal.
Sign Eovaldi.
Flip Martinez for a reliever.

Was it 14? ...when Rosenthal was pure water torture for a fan in the playoffs? It would have been that multiplied by the entire pen this year.

Still would have taken it but glad I don't have to, if that makes any sense.

There was more fun this season than I thought there would be in June.

I like Shildt better than Matheny but wondered about his bullpen use in September.

Tell the young arms to go home and find the plate.

I don't have a clue what should happen this offseason. Surprise me mo.

Yeah, he gave up 2 runs that postseason. The only runs he's ever given up in the postseason. 0.69 Postseason ERA.

If they don’t get a legit 3/4 bat and actually do something to address the [expletive] bullpen this offseason I’m not going to have much interest going into spring training.

What do I expect them to do? Not much.
