Well, there might only be one baseball game left this season. And then comes the silly season, the time to speculate and hope for wild and exciting trades that may or may not happen. But the anticipation is what really matters, right? Anyway, we started this focus once the St. Louis Cardinals were eliminated from postseason contention and it continued this weekend. Here’s some of what happened.
- With anticipation of a potential bullpen move building, Ben Markham examined the idealized ways to build a bullpen and how this impacts the way the Cardinals should approach relief pitching questions in the off-season.
- Speaking of relievers, the red baron looked at some potential low-cost-high-upside acquisitions for the bullpen of the 2018 Cardinals.
- Josey Curtis wrote about the last week’s action in the Arizona Fall League. She even talks about some potential relievers, if you weren’t able to quite get your fix of Hot Bullpen Takes from the previous two posts over the weekend.
