    Well...IF the St Louis Cardinals play like the St Louis Cardinals team (Now the Arizona Cardinals) you won't hear me complain one it.

    Goldschmidt will be fine. He's 31 and in the MVP race almost every year.

    Who cares if he will be fine. Assuming he will just because. If anything we hope he isn’t. Screw every team in Central not naked Cincinnati Reds.

    You usually don't get better once you hit 30 and he very well may have hit that wall already. And he'll be 32 before the season is over. He's hit several career lows this year statistically as well, BA, OBP, SLG, SO%, SO/BB...not a good sign IMO. And as much criticism (myself included) that Votto has gotten this year, he may actually end up with a higher OPS this year. In fact, I think he will.

    He doesn’t need to get better. Even 90% of his normal is all-star caliber.

    Always good when your rival shoots themselves in the foot. His new deal doesn't even start till next year, when he'll be 32 to start the season, and it'll cost them 26 million a year for 5 years. The deal for Mikolas isn't looking so good. 17m a year for 4 year starting next year for a guy who's putting up average numbers.

    But they have a lot of cheap talent for next 3 years or so. They need to make some more mistakes.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    He certainly needs to get better than he's been this year. He's been terrible. Right now he's about 50% of his normal self.

    He has zero zip zilch chance at being an all-star this year. He is ranked 17th for NL firstbasmen in OPS.

    I'll take that one further and admittedly this is speculation, not fact based. It's possible that with all the hard throwers today that hitters "will age" more quickly than they historically have. Perhaps bat speed is the first hitting skill to decline. Even Bryce Harper is having issues with getting his bat around on these fastballs:

    If I'm correct here, then it'll help the small market clubs cause it'll put a premium on younger hitters and younger hitters are cheaper hitters
