The First Real Season

Bernie Miklasz, writing in The Athletic, has a full review of the challenges St. Louis Cardinals skipper Mike Shildt is going to be facing in his first full year as manager of the club. Personally, I think how he manages Dexter Fowler and Adam Wainwright will be the most interesting things to watch. He doesn’t need to be a zen master of the bullpen, just run it smartly and efficiently.

There’s pressure, so let’s see what he can do. I feel pretty confident, but you know, it’s January. Ask me again in July.
