One great mystery of the offseason has been answered. Even the most pessimistic of Cardinals fans knew they were signing at least one starter. Who will that starter be? Steven Matz, as it turns out. Ho hum. Nothing too exciting. Nothing too objectionable either. Onto the next great mystery: “Will they sign two starters (or trade for one of them) this offseason?”
Right Steven Matz is still worth delving into I think. Matz has had a bit of a strange career. I kind of still remember when he arrived on the scene when it looked like the Mets were just going to keep churning out great pitching prospects.
