    Add Jordan Hicks to the mlb list. He has preexisting condition so he still gets paid, believe I heard he was the 1st who actually had a medical condition to opt out. Besides whatever he has (I forget) he is still recovering from Tommy John so wasnít expected back until sept.

    Cardinals pitching depth is already being several tested, bunch of their top back end of pen guys have either got injuries or being held up in another country, or here but hasnít been taking field so I assume Covid but they donít say that unless player gives permission.

    I thought cardinals were gonna have a little edge with all their pitching depth but they have already lost Brebbia, Hicks, plus Giovanni is held up in Mexico or somewhere, Reyes hasnít been on practice field (of course not sure they ever count on him cause he a walking injury, such a shame he so talented). That 3 of their best late inning pitchers.

    Michael Kopech has filed for a divorce from Vanessa Morgan, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    The newspaper cited Morris County, Texas court records and said the case was sealed on Monday after its inquiry.

    According to the Tribune, Kopech filed for the divorce on June 19, a little over five months after the couple got married in a small ceremony in Florida.

    Morgan posted a gender reveal photo for her child last week, but Kopech was nowhere to be found in the carousel of photos and videos, or in her copy.
