    Suarez on the other hand is peaking and is 28. His stats have improved every year for the last 4 years. They are going in opposite directions. I would easily pick Suarez over Goldschmidt.
    So would everyone

    But youre saying after one off season, he is no longer elite. Got it. ill check back in a month

    Here's a wrinkle I wasn't entirely expecting to see - Tim McCarver, the St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster, is opting out of the season.

    "My doctor obviously had an input in this,” said McCarver, 78, on Tuesday. “He recommended that I not work because of the travel and because of the obvious things (the coronavirus)."

    Currently McCarver is in Florida where he lives in the offseason, and would need to travel to St. Louis where he would be broadcasting both the home and road games.

    His doctor has probably listened to him for years and therefore it was an easy recommendation to make.

    Only about 30 years too late
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
