    Every Cardinal on their current 40 man Roster has options reports MLBTR.

    What a luxury to have as you approach the season. With the youth and strong farm perhaps that is  a goal of BenC's.

    I don't think with Pedroia, Lester, Buch, Doubie, Vic, Size, AJ, Ross, Ortiz, Nap, Demp, Breslow, Ue, Miller,Peavy, Nava and Badenhop--amoung possibly others, the possibility of having options left for every player today is close to hard to imagine.

    According to soxprospects.com, the following Sox players have options remaining:

    1: Buccholz, Tazawa, Lava, Middy, Britton, Nava

    2: Webster, de la Rosa, Wilson, Butler, Vazquez, Hassan, JBJ, Herrera

    3: Holt, Workmna, Bogey, Ranaudo, Cecchini, Brentz

    That's half: 20.

    It's hard to imagine that Wainwright, Holliday, Molina  and Peralta all still have options.

    [/QUOTE]LOL...man, other than maybe a rehab assignment, you would have to be looking at some serious tank for those guys to be going anywhere Sealed

    Maybe they don't have options--that does seem hard to believe--I didn't realize Buch and Nava had options.

    I'm not sure if they technically have options remaining or not, but once a player has 5 years of MLB experience, options become a mute point.  A player with 5 or more years of experience cannot be sent down without his consent.

    So, I'm guessing that MLBTR was talking about those with less than 5 years of experience when they stated that every Cardinal still has options.

    Since I didn't see a link in the original post, here it is.  This article is inaccurate and flat out wrong.   Every player with over five years of service are out of options.  The Cards have many players with over five years of service.  They even name all the players that have options and the number of players with options are exactly 31... now that is a very impressive number, but that should have been the story.  The way it was presented was misleading and inaccurate.

    http://stlouis.cardinals.mlb.com/news/article/stl/minor-league-options-wont-factor-into-cardinals-roster-choices?ymd=20140128&content_id=67204306&vkey=news_stl

     

    only three of the team's players have as few as one option year remaining. That notshort list includes Pete Kozma, Sam Freeman and Shane Robinson

    here is the full list of players (with less than five years service time) who have two option years remaining: Matt Adams, Peter Bourjos, Joey Butler, Keith Butler, Matt Carpenter, Allen Craig, Tony Cruz, Eric Fornataro, Jon Jay, Tyler Lyons, Carlos Martinez, Rafael Ortega, Jorge Rondon, Trevor Rosenthal, Kevin Siegrist and Michael Wacha.

    Those with all three options left include: Angel Castro, Descalso, Greg Garcia, Randal Grichuk, Joe Kelly, Lance Lynn, Seth Maness, Shelby Miller, Mike O'Neill, Audry Perez, Taveras and Wong.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_League_Baseball_transactions

    a player has a finite number of option years in which he may be moved between the major and minor leagues an unlimited number of times. If a player is on the 40-man roster but not on the active major league roster, he is said to be on optional assignment—his organization may freely move him between the major league club and the minor league club.

    Once a player has been placed on a team's 40-man roster, a team has 3 option years on that player.

    • A player is considered to have used one of those three option years when he spends at least 20 days in the minors in any of those 3 seasons.

    A team may have a fourth option year on a player with less than five full seasons of professional experience, provided that both conditions are met below.

    Once all of the options have been used up on a player, a player is considered "out of options" and a player must be placed on and clear waivers prior to being sent down to the minor leagues (there is also the "veterans' consent" rule; see below).

    Veterans' consent [edit]

    If a player has 5 years of major-league service, he may not be assigned to a minor-league team without his consent, regardless of whether he has already been outrighted once, even if he clears waivers. If the player withholds consent, the team must either release him or keep him on the major league roster. In either case, the player must continue to be paid under the terms of his contract. If he is released and signs with a new team, his previous team must pay the difference in salary between the two contracts if the previous contract called for a greater salary.

    The Cards are not a good team---after 14,000 posts I would take you as more aware from what you speak.

    Did they not make it to the WS last season?? Surely you jest and the talent level must be pretty close to the Sox talent level.

    Maybe you have many posts that don't have much merit...perhaps they sink to the bottom of the Mississippi.

    Maybe you are old enough to remember Enos Slaughter scoring from first to help beat the Sox in the World Series of 1946 when Pesky hesitated with his throw long enough for Slaughter to score the winning run in the bottom of the 8 th. Perhaps hard feelings still linger, eh.

    They are a pretty good team--I'm not a Cards fan--but I usually recognize good , across the board talent. I wouldn't mind having a few of their players--How about you Examiner?
