Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Cardinal Talk: KXnO FOX Sports Radio: On the road

Weekly St. Louis Cardinals-focused chat on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines.

Late Friday afternoon, I joined Ken Miller on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in our regular series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.” This time, we discussed the current road trip in Philadelphia, the Washington series ahead and some kid named Oscar Taveras.

Cardinals followers in central Iowa can again catch St. Louis Cardinals radio broadcasts on KXnO as well as my regular segment each week throughout the season, either over the air or via streaming. Or, if you miss it live, you can always catch the replay right here at The Cardinal Nation blog.

    Pujols still can’t walk. Still don’t miss him and that contract.

    Do you miss Chris Carpenters big dollar deal and Furcal`s.At least the Angels are getting something for their money besides a highly paid cheerleader.

      Pujols will land in the Hall of Fame and it will not be because of how many walks he collected.

      • Nutlaw says:

        Not so much worried about one year deals as ones that last nearly a decade.

      • Nutlaw says:

        During Pujols’ really great seasons, he was amazingly walking twice as often as striking out. Sure, some were intentional, but he would not have been hitting like he was if he weren’t forcing pitchers to give him something to hit.

        • JumboShrimp says:

          Nutlaw, you seem to make an assumption that hitting follows from the discipline of working walks, when it could be valid to assume that hitting induces pitchers to pitch around an effective hitter.
          The bottom line is when Albert reaches the Hall, they will salute his lifetime HR total and other hitting, while walks will go little remarked.
          Great players who earn economic manumission can weigh competing offers and take the most generous. The duration of a contract owes to competition among teams for player services after free agency is earned. Contracts for established veterans are always going to be more expensive than ones for younger players whose earnings are artificially suppressed.
