Cardinals re-sign IF-OF Spiezio to two-year deal
November 16, 2006



ST. LOUIS (Ticker) - The St. Louis Cardinals were not about to let their most versatile player get away.

Scott Spiezio, a switch hitter who played five different positions last season, signed a two-year contract with the defending World Series champions on Thursday.

Financial terms of the deal, which includes a club option for 2009, were not disclosed.

In the postseason, Spiezio added six RBI, including a game-tying two-run triple in Game Two of the National League Championship Series against the New York Mets.

"You hear the term winning player and that's what Scott is," Cardinals general manager Walt Jocketty said. "Scott showed once again why he has been tabbed with such a label. Scott's leadership, versatility and production in the clutch are such strong qualities."
