    Cardinals on verge of acquiring Belliard

    The Cards are expected to acquire Ronnie Belliard from the Indians following today's game. They're also trying to get Guillermo Mota.

    Looks like a good move on their part.

    in other news, the Cards are on the verge of being swept by the Cubs.:

    I would absolutely hate seeing Ronnie Belliard instead of Aaron Miles.

    Reds pitching is perfect for Belliard. They somehow never learned the guy is nothing but a dead pull fastball hitter.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Well not completely, but we did gain two games in those last four.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    According to Ken Rosenthal the deal is complete. The Cardinals acquire Belliard in exchange for Hector Luna.

    Luna is as good as hitter as Bellird is now. Belliard better with the glove.

    Luna way younger, much cheaper, and good potential.

    Colour me unimpressed.

    I like Belliard. It makes the Cardinals better. But, not by much. I still consider St. Louis to be an extremely vulnerable club, and on the decline.

    I'll bet they aren't done yet.

    I expect to see one of the big named pitchers wearing Cardinal within two days.

    They always make the moves.

    Not sure what people have ever been impressed about with Belliard. For 4M, I'd say bleh.

    Nice move by the Cards. Good move by the Indians as well, since Belliard was a pending free agent.
