    Oh I get that. Time will tell, but I think he's good to go.

    I think that will be close to the slash line. It was also incredibly close to his slash line in Aug/Sept.


    Even if he changes his approach, he's going to have to drive the ball in the gaps. Not just slap singles the opposite way.
    I think it'll be closer to .250/.350/.440, which is a 110 wRC+/.337 wOBA, and a 2 win season. And I would be more than happy with that, especially because it would free up Edman to either regress or support other positions. And it would mean Carpenter basically earned his pay.

    That's basically what he did this year.


    Well, you can quote this thread at the end of the year and we can see how we each did.

    I see him being worse not getting better. I hope I'm wrong

    Ozuna to Braves for 1/$18M


    I feel like his 107 wRC+ won't be hard to replace with O'Neill/Thomas/Carlson

    Based on STEAMER, here is our the optimized projected lineup

    1. Carpenter 3B - .237/.352/.441
    2. Goldschmidt 1B - .273/.369/.494
    3. Bader CF - .238/.318/.407
    4. DeJong SS - .252/.322/.465
    5. Edman LF - .274/.322/.420
    6. Wong 2B - .266/.347/.409
    7. Molina C - .263/.411/.410
    8. Pitcher - .128/.160/.162
    9. Fowler RF - .235/.336/.399

    On the bench
    C - Wieters - .233/.299/.401
    RHPH - Ravelo - .264/.326/.416
    OF - Dean - .269.320/.442
    OF - O'Neill - .237/.297/.449
    IF - Munoz - .255/.304/.389

    Others
    OF - Carlson - .252/.318/.416
    C - Knizner - .262/.317/.410
    OF - Thomas - .244/.308/.420


    That lineup at those rates is projected to score 4.522 runs per game, or 732.56 runs on the season. We scored 764 last year.

    If we score to that projection, and suppress runs at the same rate as last year, and give up 662 again, our pyth record would be 89 wins and 73 losses.

    Why not resign Ozuna? Now the offense looks anemic. Carlson....I guess better be the real deal.

    Our lineup is garbage if Carp canít get back to his 2018 form or close to it.

    That offense is a steaming pile of you know what. Brutal. Nolan Arenado trade please.

    If Carlson or Edman is legit, and Carp bounces back to form... this is a very good lineup.

    I like the idea of an outfield of O'Neill, Bader, Carlson.... Fowler should be the flex outfielder once Carlson is up.

    With Edman being able to play almost anywhere... we should go ahead and grab a big bat off the bench. Maybe that's Austin Dean.

    This will be a huge year for the Cardinals. We're finally going to learn if we have the best young outfield in all of baseball, or if we need to pivot and go external.

    I mean, he appears to be a 55 grade hitter and overall player. And a pretty safe bet to be that.

    Doubt he's a superstar, but he should be a solid, MLB regular 2-4 win player every year, for the next 6 years (well starting in 2021 basically)
