    You can keep Clement. Too much risk, like most of the FA SP.

    The Cardinals' starting rotation received a possible boost on Thursday, when the club signed right-hander Matt Clement to a one-year deal with a club option for 2009.
    The 33-year-old Clement missed the entire 2007 season while rehabbing from arthroscopic right shoulder surgery performed Sept. 26, 2006, and he has not appeared in a Major League contest since June 14, 2006, when he prematurely left his start at Minnesota with shoulder discomfort.

    Despite the injury issues and long layoff, general manager John Mozeliak is confident the veteran starter can help the Cardinals in '08.

    "Matt is a very talented pitcher who has been beset by injury the last few years," Mozeliak said. "Based on our findings from his rehabilitation last season and his recent physical, we feel that he can be a solid addition to our starting rotation and should have no limitations upon reporting to Spring Training."

    Clement has a career record of 87-86 with a 4.47 ERA over nine-plus big league seasons with the Padres, Marlins, Cubs and Red Sox. He made at least 30 starts in each of his seven full Major League seasons from 1999-2005 before shoulder problems limited him to 12 starts for Boston in '06.

    Clement struck out a career-high 215 batters with Chicago in 2002, and set a career high with 14 wins in 2003 with the Cubs, limiting the opposition to a .227 batting average, sixth lowest in the National League. He has made three postseason starts during his career, two with Chicago in 2003 and one with Boston during the 2005 playoffs.

    I always thought Abe Lincoln, errrrr, ummmm, Matt Clement was a decent pitcher but in reality we need pitchers that can give an above .500 effort not one with an 87-86 lifetime record.

    The Cardinals are presenting a rather fragile starting pitching staff in '08.
    Thank You St. Louis!
