Well, I’ve got an entire post, ready to publish, completely devoted to crunching the numbers of both Troy Glaus and Scott Rolen. A little compare and contrast, if you will. However, I’ve decided that it would be a bit premature to post it today, and now plan on waiting until the trade is finalized, after both players pass their physicals.
So instead, let’s bide our time with some minor, late news surrounding the ball club. I’ll refer you to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, where you’ll find an interesting article discussing our old pal, Walt Jocketty, and his new position with the Cincinnati Reds. Derrick Goold has the story.
A couple more former Redbirds have signed on elsewhere. Kip Wells has signed a one year deal with the Colorado Rockies, while infielder Miguel Cairo has signed on with the Seattle Mariners.
For those interested in the annual Cardinals Caravan, the schedule and lineups are now available. Matthew Leach has all the info.
Also, Rick Hummel has the news of another loss in the Cardinal family. Long time VP of community relations, Marty Hendin, passed away last night at 59. Another tip of the cap is due Cards fans. Read the full article here.
