Of course, Gibson going to kick cancers ass.


For painfully obvious reasons, the Cardinals didn’t open their home schedule Thursday against the Baltimore Orioles. The good news is that Bob Gibson would have been there if there had been no coronavirus pandemic-fueled shutdown of sports.

Diagnosed last summer with pancreatic cancer, Gibson, 84, had no guarantee he would see many, if any, more Cardinals openers. But now his chemotherapy treatments have been moved from once a week to every three weeks and he said he feels no pain.

Gibson is due for a couple of days of tests this week but for now, as he told someone recently, “The reaper came the other day — and I wouldn’t answer the door.”

When a veteran reporter called him the other day, Gibson asked, “Are you still kicking? Me, too.”

With Gibson having been slated to ride in the caravan around the track on Thursday, his scheduled chemo for this week was moved back a week.

“The problem with waiting that long is that when you start with your treatment it’s like starting all over,” the baseball Hall of Famer said. “You have a little ‘sicky feeling.’”

Yet, he allows that, overall, he feels “pretty good.

“I don’t know where I’m going with this disease but they’ll take some tests and they’ll see where it is,” he said. “But I’m not in any pain. I haven’t been in any for two months, maybe three. I’ve been doing this (rehab) for eight months now.

“I had a lot of pain in July, August and September and then in the fall it stopped hurting. But I had back aches and stomach aches. Right now, I don’t have anything aching at all. The only way I know I’m sick is that the doctor keeps telling me. I tell him, ‘Bull(feathers).’”

Gibson said he had had a feeding tube attached for several months.

“It was my idea to get rid of it,” he said. “I had it in for a month-and-a-half without using it.”

With the feeding tube in, Gibson lost 35 pounds, down to 170. But, his appetite restored, he now is closing in on 185 pounds.

Not sure how this covid-19 situation has made him more open to free agency. I don’t see the Cardinals FO being able to let him walk. Will overpay in length and money.


Two thoughts:
1. Will St Louis be able (read: willing) to afford a deal he’ll accept?
2. Can they afford the public outcry if they don’t? https://t.co/YgRAgcMv6q

Does a post covid-19 Baseball world go back to the elite haves and the rest scrambling in the have nots?

So, the Molina rumors are 100% tied to the virus. Rumors of a possible extension were happening during ST, but financial landscape for baseball has changed dramatically. Cards are anticipating a need to cut payroll in '20. Wrote about this here: https://t.co/YIBVy6YY6Q

I’m sorry, I just can’t buy the “poor midwestern team” the Cardinals seemingly always want to spin when they cheap out.

Not that I necessarily believe extending Molina is the right thing to do, either. I know he’s a legend in St. Louis, but he will be no matter what. Extending a 38 year old catcher isn’t smart no matter how big of a legend he is.

its going to be tough but as you said, extending a 38 year old catcher makes no sense.

I agree on the cheap ass Dewitt’s. They paid $75 million in cash for the Cardinals. Worth $2 Billion now. Telling us you can’t afford something is being disingenuous.

Bernie out

I don’t know the ins and outs of the radio business and times are tough, but @miklasz is one of the smartest, best sports columnists I’ve ever known, the elite of the elite. I can’t believe he was let go by @101espn .. just stunned. Let’s hope he’s back analyzing sports soon.

So what is this stuff about only having 5 rounds in the MLB draft? What is going to happen to these players that would have been drafted in the other 35 rounds? This is some crazy stuff.

How you guys feel about going DH from now on?

Pending MLB agreement reportedly includes DH in NL for both 2020 and 2021. Then comes new CBA which almost certainly will include it. So, NL is a DH league now.

Also it seems one of the worst outcomes of no 2020 season is it would push back a year of contract service for some of the slapstick’s this team has on terrible deals.

My understanding is the contracts age a year regardless of whether games are played or not.
