    Cardinals Shut Out?

    ...in the Hot Stove League?

    I thought they were the leaders for Holliday--and didn't get him. I thought Peavy would be great insurance for the health of the other starters, potentially a fab rotation--and that looks like it won't happen. Most of all, I thought they might try to find a closer--but I can't see where that would come from.

    I'm fine with them standing pat, relying on young guys, and not tearing the guts out of the farm system again...but I still might have hoped for something.

    Re: Cardinals Shut Out?

    They need to resign Lopez and have him as the every day SS then pick up a second baseman. I have heard they have interest in O-Dogg... Bullpen help can be easy to find if they are smart but they could definately use one more starter.

    Cardinals don't usually spend big buck lately, especially with Pujols, Glaus, and Carpenter's contracts. They'll probably take a flyer on washed up Edgar Renteria to fill their SS hole and sign some veteran 2B again for a 1 year rental then take on a couple projects for their pitching staff.

    Re: Cardinals Shut Out?

    The Cards never, ever, ever get any of the big free agents they try to pursue in the offseason. At least it's been that way for the last several years. I would like to see them get Escobar at SS, but they won't. They were close to getting Holliday, but the Rockies wanted too many players. Carpenter likely won't be doing much this year for them so they need to find another starter for the rotation. Probably won't get much.
