    HRod could probably serve as a reserve SS, but not sure you'd want him there for an extended stretch. I'd say if they deal Cozart or Didi, they bring in a journeyman and have HRod in L'Ville in case of injury.

    No. After Griffey's injuries, the 2000s and the 2010 and 2012 NLDS, I'd say the baseball gods have gotten bored tormenting us. Hopefully they're refocusing their attention on St. Louis.

    You do realize the baseball gods are all actually cardinals right?

    I really don't care for Coco Crisp. I realize he would be an upgrade as far as what we had in lead-off this year; but again, career-wise leading off, we're still looking at a .322 OB%.

    But could he be our answer as far as a stop-gap goes with Hamilton? Crisp will make $7M in 2013, with a club option for 2014.

    Wouldn't Juan Pierre be a cheaper option?

    Pierre is a defensive liability in left field, and I think he'd be an even bigger liability in center.

    Does this dealing a SS talk possibly mean FO thinks Hamilton can play it? e.g.: Bourn or Span in CF, Hamilton to SS, deal for a LF involving Cozart or Didi?

    I think it more likely means that they know they can bring in a cheap defensive guy like Valdez or Janish any time they want to back-up the guy they choose to keep.

    I don't think so. I think they like either Cozart or Didi long-term at SS. Hamilton will be in CF (or LF if they bring in someone like Bourn).

    I wasn't that interested in Bourn before he got a qualifying offer. Now that he has one, my interest level is at zero.
