Hot Stove: Daniel Descalso, Peter Bourjos talk future


Upon their return to St. Louis after the NLCS, Daniel Descalso and Peter Bourjos talked about their future as the Hot Stove season began last week. A number of players opened up to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about their futures with the club.

Daniel Descalso to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
“We’ll see what happens. Obviously I didn’t get a chance to play a lot this year. There wasn’t a lot of opportunity. I don’t know if there is going to be any more opportunity going forward here. I would like that chance to play. I don’t know what they’re going to do.”

Peter Bourjos to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

"The season “was up and down,” Bourjos said. “And that kind of went with the playing time, too. Inconsistent playing time, inconsistent results — that’s how it goes sometimes. If there’s an opportunity out there, I’d like to play every day.”"

John Lackey to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
“Great experience here. Obviously it didn’t end the way we’d like it to. No complaints at all. A lot of young guys that will be back, and they’re big contributors. Definitely don’t see why not. The reason I came here was I had every intention of playing next year.”

Lackey, who came over from the Boston Red Sox, has said he will honor the $500,000 option should the team pick it up.
