Let’s Make a Deal
Trade speculation on KTRS last night was centering on the possibility of the Cards making a deal for Andrew Jones. While Jones is certainly a playmaker, I think the Cards would be better off getting a pitcher. If the Big 3 can stay on track, and they seem to be back on track now (well, Rolen never derailed), hitting isn’t our big problem. The Post speculates the Cards could get Jeff Weaver, and I’d be all for that. We can’t continue to give up 6-8 runs a game, many of those in the first few innings, and expect to win many games, even with El Hombre. I was glad to see Tony make some moves and bring up Duncan and Kinney, even if Kinney did get rocked on his first pitch (welcome to the show!). Thompson was sent down, and he does seem to need some time to settle down and find his rhythm (plus I’m still not convinced he’s of legal age to play – kid looks 14!). Here’s hoping we can get a win tonight with Carp on the mound.
