    Cards have serious interest in Smoltz

    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak confirmed to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he has "legitimate interest" in John Smoltz. Another official described the team's interest as "very serious." The Red Sox released the righty yesterday, and he's set to become a free agent tomorrow, at which point any team can sign him for the pro-rated major league minimum.
    Smoltz has a history of success out of the 'pen, but Strauss suggests via his Twitter that the future Hall of Famer could become the Cardinals' fifth starter. We could hear about Smoltz's decision as soon as today.

    Re: Cards have serious interest in Smoltz

    Meh, If he is going to perform like he did in Boston then I would rather stick with the schleps they have at the back end of the rotation. But if they get him for little or nothing and try him out why not I guess.

    Re: Cards have serious interest in Smoltz

    I think St. Louis would be a very good fit... I got to see Smoltz's first start back in person. The velocity looked good, you could tell he just didn't have the feel for his pitches. Maybe that will come back with a little more time. If it does, he will be well worth the risk.

    We'll have to see if he pitches well. It's his command that's killing him and that really isn't influenced by whether or not you're starting or relieving. It would have actually been better if he had his good command but couldn't maintain the velocity.
