    There are 24 teams in baseball with a longer World Series drought than the St. Louis Cardinals.

    Top of mind question: Does Freddie Freeman pull a Pujols? Win the WS with the only team he's ever known and then bolt...

    And who can really use him? Why the Angels. (Or Mariners.)

      Baseball is the most tonedeaf sport going. I've been a fan for fifty plus years. This was the first time I did not watch one single moment of the playoffs after the Cardinals lost.

        I didn't realize Freeman was already 32. He should be rooting hard for the DH to come to the NL.

            If true, he'll retire with a BA just above .300, and a HOF induction percentage likely North of 90%.

                His body probably feels like 74.

                  Nick Castellanos leaves $34M from Reds on table, opts out of deal to become free agent
                  https://sports.yahoo.com/nick-castel...204339503.html

                  Nick Castellanos might be the best outfielder on the free agent market.

                    Go get him MoGirsch.

                    Seems like a smart, calculated risk on his part, even without a CBA in place for next year. He'll only be 30 next season and someone is certainly going to give him more than $34m over the next two years. It looks like a pretty thin OF FA class too.

                      Not sure "best outfielder" is quite the descriptor there.

                        Why would they spend that kind of money on an outfielder when the current cast of characters performed better than capably this year (and probably have a combined salary less than half a season's worth of Castellanos), Nootbaar is raking in the AFL and SS and pitching are a much greater need than OF?

                          Do not fear. The Cardinals will have zero interest in that fellow.

                            Castellanos has played third, so I'm sure he could play second.
