    Cards targeting Jake Westbrook (CLE)

    The Cardinals are targeting Jake Westbrook, rival teams tell ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark. The Cards are no longer pursuing Aaron Cook or Livan Hernandez, since they’re focused on the Indians right-hander. However, Stark hears that there’s just a 50% chance of a trade.

    The Indians don’t want to absorb salary in a deal, but Westbrook will make about $4MM between now and the end of the season. He also obtains a $2MM bonus if the Indians trade him.

    The Cardinals have been looking for an innings eater and Westbrook fits that description. The 32-year-old has posted a 4.65 ERA in 127.2 innings, with 5.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9. Westbrook is scheduled to face the Blue Jays tomorrow.

    He'd be an definite upgrade over Hawksworth and Suppan, that's for sure. Hopefully he wouldn't be too expensive for us to acquire him prospect-wise. He'd definitely help our club out in terms of reaching the postseason, and once you get there anything can happen.

    This would be an iffy up grade for the redbirds, but yes Suppan just doesn't have it anymore. I really wanted Oswalt but it became clear Houston didn't want to trade him within the division.

    Who's your favorite team?

    As a Cardinals fan I couldn't care less about what the Cubs do. I want to win this division, make the playoffs, and win in them. The Cubs are a non-factor.

    That we are, but he has a Hawk-like obsession with how the Cubbies do. We're terrible, but he can't let it go.
    When the Cubs are winning, dude posts over and over about how the site shouldn't have all this Cubs talk. Kind of an obsession.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
