Quick Notes and Links


After two signings in two days, nothing happening in Baseball Heaven today.  I did, however, stumble across a few good articles about our beloved Redbirds, and thought I’d pass them along while we wait for some fresh news.

First, a couple of journalists over at the Post Dispatch expressed their thoughts on the Clement contract. In addition to his opinion, Jeff Gordon also breaks down the starting rotation as it stands now.  Check out that article here.  Brian Burwell gives his take here.

Over on the Official Cardinal website,  Mathew Leach has begun his annual “Around The Horn” segment, where he covers a different part of the team each week, leading up to Spring Training.  His take on the catchers can be found here.

And finally, I always find it interesting where former Cardinals end up.  Fan favorite So Taguchi signed a one year deal with the Phillies.  Gary Bennett landed with the Dodgers, also on a one year deal.  And John Rodriguez, one of my least favorites, signed a minor league contract with the Tampa Bay Rays.
