    Ryan Theriot to the Cards

    And is their starting SS according to their GM.

    I love that Mozeliak is their GM. Just absolutely love it.

    Edit- Traded for Blake Hawksworth. Sadly we don't get to beat up on Hawksworth anymore.

    Re: Ryan Theriot to the Cards

    I'm replying to my own thread because I'm shocked here. Theriot was about to be non tendered and I can't see any value here. He can't hit, doesn't walk, and stinks at defense. Brendan Ryan with his defense alone is better and cheaper than Theriot.

    I love it!

    Based on last season, this doesn't help them much. But if Theriot bounces back closer to 2008 and 2009, this is a slight upgrade. Losing Hawksworth was addition by subtraction lol

    For some reason what your saying seems very familiar. Hmmmmm....a guy that can't hit, doesn't walk, and stinks at defense not equaling the value of a guy that's only good with the glove.I'll figure it out eventually.

    And even better, he's due an arb raise I believe.

    Maybe their batting coach has magic beans that can fix him.

    Re: Ryan Theriot to the Cards

    There's something appropriate about this trade. It was sort of presaged on Opening Day. Am I remembering correctly that there was a glitch in the screen at that game and initially the Cardinals line up showed All Ryan Theriot in every line up slot. Does anyone else remember that?

    Let's hope they don't win the division as a result.

    Re: Ryan Theriot to the Cards

    Why is it that I have the impression that Theriot used to kill the REDs?
    Or was that Fontenot?

    Can't get my Cubs straight.

    Re: Ryan Theriot to the Cards

    I think Theriot will help the Cardinals. The problem is the better combo would be Theriot at 2B and Ryan at SS. Shumaker is the weakest link on that team IMO. Ryan plays good defense with little offense. Not exactly sure what Schumaker does. Theriot would be a bigger upgrade at 2B than at SS (especially defensively). but he's one of the two best MI on that roster at this point.

    Schumaker is more of the lefty hitting 5th OF type but I don't like what I've seen of him defensively at 2B.

    Why are you shocked? The Cards really didn't give up any "value" for Theriot... they gave up Blake Hawksworth. The only thing that concerns me is his price tag. Although, his offense is better than Brendan Ryan's.

    Both, IIRC.
