Here are half a dozen things on my mind this month:1. St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tommy Pham should be paid. He doesn’t have to be, and he likely won’t be, but in my opinion, if you’re the best player on the team, the cash-rich organization should reward him. Imagine Dexter Fowler made $16.5 million this year, and Pham, a better player, made $500,000. This year, he’ll make slightly more, but his arbitration doesn’t come up till the following season.
