    The Cardinals are open to shifting Matt Holliday from left field to right. The fact that the Cardinals entertained Berkman as a possibility suggests that the right-field platoon is anything but set.

    The Cards won't stand pat in the wake of losing the divison crown to the Reds. Not usre they can put the pieces they need, but they'll try. Up until the reports that his recovery was way behind, I expected them to add Brandon Webb too.

    Signing Berkman doesn't have me quaking inmy boots, but I'd still like to see Walt acquire a solid piece or two.

    Wonder if they may be considering Pujols back to 3B with Berkman @ 1B? I guess it could be Berkman to LF with Holiday to RF or maybe the just want LB's bat off the bench.

    Berkman hasn't played in the outfield since 2007 he wasn't a very good outfielder then.

    Maybe Pujols and Austin Kearns can work on their third base skills together this off-season.

    The Cards are missing Jocketty more and more as time goes by.

    Re: Cards Sign Berkman

    It's going to be Berkman in LF, Holiday in RF, and Rasmus in CF. And you know it's only a matter of time before LaRussa takes out Rasmus and puts Jay in CF. That's a really bad defensive outfield...
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Why? So he could trade Garcia to the A's for an injured southpaw?
