Cards won't have the money. Buerhle made in the neighborhood (without looking it up) of $14M last season.
After paying Pujols $25M per season, re-signing Berkman with a raise, picking up Wainwright's option, re-signing Carpenter and Garcia, the rest of the team might look like scrap heap guys.
Best thing Reds fans can hope for is that the Cardinal players get fat and old this offseason and lay an egg next season.
