Tyrell Jenkins was claimed by the Padres, making (I think) his 4th team this offseason. Has his star dimmed that much and is it justified?
John Nagel
8:03
I was always a little suspect of Jenkins. He was a high risk, high reward type guy who hasnt found the end of the rainbow yet. I wish him well in San Diego

Todd Frazier or Mike Moustakas? Who is the better potential acquisition? Frazier and Fowler in the same clubhouse would be insane.
John Nagel
8:04
Yeah I am with you. If those two, give me Frazier. However, judging by Eaton's price tag I don't think that's happening
Art Lippo

Do you think the Blues will trade Kevin Shattenkirk?
John Nagel
8:05
Sure. Shatty for Sidney Crosby and a first rounder. Man, I've been hanging out in the lounge too long
Tim M. McKernan

Love the chat. Any interest in doing an AM radio show from 5 to 7 everyday?
John Nagel
8:06
Thanks "Tim"! That would be fun but would be hard work securing all those sponsors. I wouldn't have time to write.

What trade value does Matt Carpenter have.maybe carp and walka for Paul Goldschicht
John Nagel

Speaking of the lounge.....

Will I get a standing ovation this summer upon my return to Busch?
John Nagel
8:08
You should. You are one of the greatest Cards of all time. However, with your commitment to the Salvation Army, I don't know if you will make an appearance

Where do you see Austin Gomber starting in '17? When do you realistically think he can contribute in STL?
John Nagel
8:10
Without mapping out all of the starting rotations, I would probably put him at Springfield, but think he could easily start at Memphis. I think a MLB debut late in 2017 is not unreasonable.
Corey Rudd

Kill Marry F .... Me, Hochman, Buffa
John Nagel
8:12
I would Marry you, Rudd. You are a financial planner and we would be set for a long time. I would F Dan Buffa because that dude is ripped. I would kill Hochman. I think that speaks for itself
Greg
8:13
What do you think the Cardinals will do with... Wait, this isn't Derrick Goold's chat... My bad.
John Nagel
8:13
I didn't realize Derrick had a monopoly on chats, Greg. The fact that you took time out of your day to troll me is flattering. Thanks!

Do you think the Cardinals will be successful without a power bat in 2017. Handsome is there any chance of the Cardinals picking up Brian Dozier from Minnesota
John Nagel
8:15
I think Dozier was a pipe dream and honestly probably wouldn't help the Cards as much as he would be worth. I think they can get by with less HR's if they can get on base a lot. They are going to wear down starters

Your new site is great. When can we expect the next one?
John Nagel
8:16
Ehhh give this one about a month or so.
Matthew

If/when does Carson Kelly become the cardinals main catcher?
John Nagel
8:18
With Yadi on the roster it will be tough for Matheny to make the switch. Molina has a team option in '18 that will likely be picked up so I will say full time in 2019
Matthew
8:18
Current minor leaguer(not counting Reyes) with the best chance of becoming an all star?
John Nagel
8:19
Great question. I will say Carson Kelly. I think he will be one of the best defensive catchers when he takes over full time.
CB
8:19
I happen to think that Gyorko should be the everyday 3rd baseman. Why do some keep suggesting that Peralta is the starter?
John Nagel
8:21
I am still a little skeptical when it comes to Gyorko. I think he could take a big step back. Also Peralta played pretty well in August and Sept

The Cards have a hole at 3B and yet moved DeJong to SS. Is this a sign they have no faith he could turn into a regular 3B?
John Nagel
8:22
That move still continues to fascinate me. I wonder if it means they don't think he can be a MLB regular at any position and they are building his utility profile. With the depth at SS and lack of at 3B it doesn't make sense.
Jimmy
8:22
After Pujols, is there a Cardinals player worthy of a retirement?
John Nagel
8:23
I am assuming you mean a # retired? Molina?
CB
8:23
He could but he may not and probably won't.
John Nagel
8:24
Referring to Gyorko. You are probably right. He wont take a big step back, but he probable wont hit 30 homers again.
Luke Weaver
8:24
I'm not Alex Reyes. Can you please tell everyone what a reasonable 2017 projection is for me?
John Nagel
8:25
I think you will be the first man up when an injury to a starter happens. You aren't Alex, but I think you could be a nice middle rotation starter. I think it's less than 50% you are still with the Cards at the end of the season.
CB
8:26
Why? He hit them in less than a year and he is only 28 and under team control until 2021.
John Nagel
8:27
Maybe he does, but he was really streaky. FWIW, Fangraphs projects 20 HR's from Gyorko
