I wonder if he got any tlc, or if the scouts decided that they want no Scruggs.
He can always fall back on playing bluegrass banjo like his Uncle Earl.

I'm understanding more and more why they traded Pham by the day. There's standing up for yourself and asking for what you're worth, and then there's this.

Hopefully just friendly ribbing.

I'd like to think the Cardinals don't worry about office (clubhouse?) politics, but then again, my memory is that some toxic office politics gifted Mozeliak his current position in the first place.

Goold seems like a bright enough guy who isn't just mailing it in, but he corners himself with these empty little turns-of-phrases. He's just not disciplined enough as a writer.

Why is Pham following Derrick Goold, and why is he so sensitive?

Time for both sides to move on......

"Trade away 5+ WAR players because they're a red ass. "

I think Pham may have misunderstood Goold but BDW was likely the reason for that trade. Mo isn't that stupid.

Particularly 5+ WAR players that you have to pay next to nothing.

Dumb trade was dumb.
