    Same here, if you define "hearbroken" as "now a Cardinals fan."

    I notice there is nothing from Ed complaining about the front office doing nothing in reaction to this particular signing.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    It's not every team that can sign a guy who is coming off a year with a 1.92 Rc/27.

    Worst RC/27 in the 21st century, 150 PA min

    Code:
    RUNS CREATED/GAME             YEAR    RC/G      AB     
    1    Brandon Inge             2001     1.47      189   
    2    Jorge Fabregas           2002     1.57      155   
    3    Donnie Sadler            2001     1.61      185   
    4    Enrique Wilson           2001     1.63      228   
    5    Terry Tiffee             2005     1.66      150   
    6    Raul Chavez              2004     1.71      162   
    7    Keith Ginter             2005     1.73      137   
    8    Jermaine Dye             2003     1.91      221   
    9    Paul Bako                2006     1.91      153   
    10   Jason LaRue              2007     1.92      169

    I think 6 of those guys have played with the Royals before.

    Prediction time..
    LaRue (if he makes the team that is) will have a big game next year vs the Reds, and 4 threads will be started about how dumb we were to let him go
    Go Gators!

    That's a given. JL will take a Red's reliever deep in the 8th, run around the bases rapidly with his chest puffed out. Izzy will get the save and Ryan Franklin the W.

    I should cross the picket line and write for TV. I can usually predict the plot twists as the shows unfold, anyway...

    At the very least it appears the new Cardinals FO understands the importance of defense at the catcher position.

    I beg to differ. Jason LaRue is hardly a great defensive catcher.

    Didn't he lead the world in passed balls at one point?

    I bet if Gonzo signed with the Cardinals, he'd then be good.

    They're both getting old, but remember: 1. Larue is a back up and 2. Gonzalez makes $4 million more.

    Larue could easily suck anymore at catcher, I don't know. But the guy used to be a very good catcher.

    That would be 2002 when he had twenty passed balls. A majority of those (8) while catching knuckleballer Jared Fernandez.
