It's not just the rich nukes dot and you'll know it's good Mondays with Mona on our chance to visit with John Moselle the president of baseball operations and Mo- yesterday clearly a very tough loss tough series. Let's start with Carlos. Martinez is what is his status and what was his status yesterday just to clear it up for some of the fans well when he's out in Denver. He was experiencing uh-huh respiratory and breathing issues we've thought at the time it was mostly just aller tease or maybe altitude but you know experienced variance again on. Saturday had to go to the hospital. still not exactly sure what he's doing. He's got some different types of medication to try to help with that that but he just wasn't available yesterday so day to day and hopefully Should we need them tonight. He'll be ready to go. Do you find out when he gets to the ballpark tonight or do. You have a better sure I d this morning. I hope to share something mid day but I'll know that later today what what to status for fans you could understand it. Mo- wins and losses boy. It's it's gut wrenching. How about from your seat. How tough how are the losses and how satisfying are the winds. Sometimes as you go all along in the late season well I definitely would say like days like yesterday or are much harder and and you feel it more even than if you were to win I always said winning sort of you it's a moment in time and then you're onto the next one sometimes losses feel like they linger a little bit but baseball is an interesting business you have to you have to turn the page and you know as I was telling. Some people asked night. essay were sort of sad and sulking. I was just telling them that. We're still in first place we still are control our own destiny and the the best approach is to put this behind us and start focusing on what we have to do today and so you know. I suspect from a managerial standpoint coaching standpoint point. That's where our heads are going to be and I know players think like that. So you know I think today is is just what you have to think about. It's a new day. Mike has done a great job Kazini about you know really staying in the moment with his guys and making sure that they feel that way that he expresses. Stay in the moment play in the moment well I. I really really believe that that players today realize that you have to otherwise this game can just beat you up and you know you. You learn learn over time that I think fans writers. I sometimes feel like they they get mad at us because we're not overly emotional about a loss like they get frustrated that we don't care as much as them. It's not that we don't care as much we just know that our job is to turn the page and I think that's hard for some people little except at times but that's reality and that's how we're going to treat today and hopefully we we end with a fist pumps and smiles tonight absolutely couple of guys really of emerged and one that I I'm I'm so intrigued with Genesis Cabrera that if you get into postseason play could be a weapon is is he emerging as we go. Go down the stretch for you. Yeah I think this year has been very important for him. In terms of you know when we traded for them we we were excited about his arm and we knew it was dynamic but there were still some things that he had to do to to be consistent at the major league level but I think everybody is starting to see why I were so excited about him when we acquired him in the trade and it it's easy to envision him being a a part of our club whether it's if we get to postseason org definitely impactful next year so definitely excited about what you're seeing out of him. I know you'd never liked to pay a guy one way or another or put yourself in a corner. I will ask the question now. Look at it more as a reliever or starter moving forward well I would. I would definitely think we'd bring him in as a starter for spring in training next year because he's already been stretch out he's showing he can do that and then if there's no spots for him then he could easily go into the bullpen. I'm sure Justin Williams was the other part of that deal and he came on late. I I was curious if you thought about bringing him up because he's a left handed bat now you do have a lot outfielders but the idea of a left handed bat and he had really picked it up at the end. was there any thought to bring him up at the tail end of the season. Yes there was a a lot of discussion about him and I think really it just came down to a numbers game here at the Big Leagues in terms of opportunity but you know it was great because because you know the the year was definitely lost year for him but to have him finish the way he did was very important. Ryan Helmsley's another guy now tough day yesterday but he is emerged. What have you thought about the progression that you've seen Ryan from this year. Well you can see why we liked him. I think the biggest difference for him is being able to command the strike zone. You know you know when you think back to yesterday's game and and you know clearly walk Scott us but we found ourselves especially in those last three innings and a lot of two who accounts getting ahead is so important and you know I think housing will tell you that that's gotta be what he does too and so when you when you find yourself on those defensive counts trouble trouble happens and so I think one of his strengths of Ben when he was up here throwing strikes and you know certainly the for him to be successful he asked to are you ready for the boys of summer well pulled up a front row seated hotshot sports bar and grill for all the cardinals action this season at one of their eleven area locations during every cardinals game you can enjoy the new hotshot strip apply special featuring during a large pizza order boneless wings and a bucket of blood family bottles available for a great price also be sure to join the Party on the last Tuesday ebb each month this season for hotshots ticket Tuesday and your shot discover a pair of tickets to an upcoming game.

He's got a shot now at a you know thirty five home run season and close to one hundred. RBI is how would you generally speaking and the defense which has been outstanding. How would you look at his first years of cardinal well. I I I think he's done so much for us and clearly I think people gravitate gravitate just to the offensive numbers but what is meant to US defensively what he's meant to us in the clubhouse. He was as advertised. I mean he really is a special man. He's he's. He's someone that that really cares about our community. He someone that wants to be a part of our community and so I think that the goal the Paul Goldschmidt era will only get better as as we as we move on but certainly excited to see what he's being able to do for us. It really has been impactful two more questions. We'll let you go dylan. Carlson not go into to the Arizona Fall League. Just kinda take a break getting a little stronger ready for spring. Is that the idea yeah I spoke with him and he really felt like his off season. Training last year prepared him well for for the year he had and he just like to repeat that talked with our performance people. We're in agreement that there really wasn't much for him to prove or gain aim by going to the fall league so ultimately it was we decided it was just in his best interest to to repeat what he did last year and hopefully come to camp ready to go and finally you know so many people talk about ozone a- and would you bring him back or this guy or that guy. Adam wainwright is a guy that so intriguing ending. He's had a really good year mo how you know how do you look at his year and how things have unfolded for Adam. WAINWRIGHT had a great year he's been one of our UH rocks and our rotation and certainly at some point at his agent and I will price it down and see what the future holds great staff. Thanks so much the catch up next Monday and good luck tonight will see at the Ballpark Dr. It sounds great. Thanks bye-bye.."
