Cardinals acquired 3B Pedro Feliz and cash considerations from the Astros for RHP David Carpenter.
Get psyched? We know that Tony La Russa loves his veterans, but Feliz was batting just .221/.243/.311 with four home runs and 31 RBI with the Astros this season. The Cardinals probably aren't paying him much, so it's worth the gamble. He gives the Cardinals another option at the hot corner with David Freese done for the year and Felipe Lopez struggling.
