I didn’t misread the scenario... I understood it as you did. What would you or I do to get Bobby Wagner?
I know it wasn’t about what would Chris Ballard do?
But I brought up Ballard because my view is.... why would I do something that I don’t think Chris Ballard would ever do? If Ballard wouldn’t do it, I doubt I’d want to.
I wanted Chris Ballard to sign Gerald McCoy. I posted repeatedly I hoped we’d sign him. But when we didn’t, I didn’t say anything negative about Ballard. I believe in him and his vision.
Who knows? Maybe Ballard (or Dodds) called Seattle and inquired what Seattle would want in a trade and that ended the conversation. I wouldn’t rule out that we inquired. Only that it didn’t go anywhere.
After falling behind 3-0 in the 1st inning, I was like not again against these guys. We kept chipping away, MVP homered in the 6th to tie it and then neither team could score until Kyle hit it out in the 10th. Our bullpen did a great job tonight with Strop, Kimbrel, and Cishek.
Brewers won tonight, Cards lost to the Pirates so the Brewers are back in 2nd place. NL Central standings going into July 17th look like this:
Brewers 49-47 (2.5 back)
Cards 47-46 (3 back)
Pirates 45-49 (5.5 back)
Reds 43-49 (6.5 back)
