When you bring in guys from good defensive teams like Hankins, Sheard, and Simon, in addition to Ballard from Kansas City and then have a strong draft and a rejuvenated group of guys that are all Grigson era guys you may see us take a 2015 Carolina/Denver or 2016 Atlanta like step and exceed expectations similar to 2012.
Yeah, I'm torn on this. It doesn't seem like the Cards got anything in return. Yepez is really nothing. Adams was at least a good pinch hitter for the team. Maybe it won't affect things too much. Adams did come into the season in great shape. It's good for Adams and the Cardinals usually make an effort to do what is right.
I think that is exactly what it is . Visiting Buff and then allegedly the NYG too. If you cannot find someone to pay you what you want, you go and visit everyone and see if someone, anyone will pay you. If not, then you take the 1 year deal that you feel either pays you best or gives you the best chance to land another big payday the following year. I would love to get Hodges, but i do not think we are going to be the team that pays him best. So he would have to come here based on the opportunity to play well and pad his future offers.
