    .. Cards Adding Adam Kennedy, Wells, & Others

    Rotoworld.com

    The Cardinals are close to signing Adam Kennedy to a three-year deal worth about $10 million, according to FOXSports.com.

    That'd be a very good deal. It had looked like Kennedy would get about $15 million for three years. He's not going to be blocking anyone in St. Louis, so the lengthy contract isn't a problem. The team could use a right-handed hitter to platoon with him, and Aaron Miles isn't a great option.
    Many here will compare this signing with the Reds signing Alex Gonzalez. So let me start it. Especially now if that is the price tag on Kennedy. Sure that would of saved 4 million.. but it may actually make some of the more recent moves less painful.

    Finally they get him back after giving him away all those years ago.

    Is could be just me, but the NL Central is looking VERY tough for 2007.

    Of all the words that could possibly describe this transaction, the most appropriate seems to be "meh."

    The signing of Adam Kennedy prompted this thought?

    I was just thinking that this signing indicates the current level of mediocrity in the NL Central.

    again from Rotoworld.com

    According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Bernie Miklasz, the Cardinals are set to announce the signings of Kip Wells, Adam Kennedy, Gary Bennett and Eli Marrero.

    Wells could be a nice cheap solution at the back of an NL rotation, and he's the kind of pitcher Dave Duncan tends to have luck with, though last year's Sidney Ponson signing didn't work out at all. Bennett is going to stick around as the backup for Yadier Molina. Marrero reportedly is getting a minor league deal and the opportunity to compete for a bench spot.

    That's the kind of DP combo that could win a World Series for someone.

    If this weren't an Adam Kennedy thread, I'd point out the minor league contract Eli Marrero just got.

    Just a throw in back in 2000 along with front line starter Kent Bottenfield for Jimmy.

    Bottenfield almost quit baseball in 1995(?) when a Major league contract with the Tigers didn't materialize. His Toledo jersey was printed as "Buttenfield" and he didn't take that too well.

    Marrero on a minor league deal. Moeller on a major league deal. Sounds about right...

    Wells could be a nice signing. I'm sure its probably one year with an options so if it doesn't work out it isn't a big deal.

    He hasn't done much catching the last few years but I'd still take him over Moeller. Especially on a minor league deal.

    Jocketty running rings around the others, as usual.

    Gosh he didn't even give Marerro a major league deal. I am sure other GMs were standing in line to give a major league deal to Moeller, good thing Wayne beat 'em to it.
