It's early and what are the replacements
Henry Blinkler

We've only got one N/A slot on our roster, so only room to stash one prospect. Giolito, Glasnow, or Urias?
Paul Swydan

If you're trying to win this year, not Urias. If you're *not* trying to win this year, Urias.

Glasnow for redraft, Urias for keeper
Yep

Any chance Rosenthal moves to the rotation in the near future? He has the pitches to make it happen. Velocity would obviously take a hit, but it's easy to imagine him throwing for a mid to low 3 ERA with K's and a not-so dominate WHIP. He would hold more value to the Cards, and it's not like they don't have arms to replace Trevor in the closer role.

No, that ship sailed awhile back. I think the Cardinals did him an extreme disservice by pigeonholing him in the closer's role - I think I've actually written about this before - but at this point, he's the closer.

I think he will be a relief pitcher for life.

Justin Upton looks terrible...lowest Z-Contact% of career, 40% K rate, 4% BB rate. Sell while we still can?
Paul Swydan

No, I think give him some more time.

Wait on him .... and Alex Gordon made a great catch taking a double from him the other day.

However, we don't have any more time tonight. Thanks as always for hanging out. I'm blown away by how many questions we get these days. See you next week!
