CARDINALS RIDING DOWN RETREAD ALLEY
I see where the Cards just signed former Cub and now former Royal (never a good career sign) Todd Wellemeyer. What does it say about the Cards when they are signing retreads who couldn’t crack the Cubs’ roster?
It says ‘team in massive disarray’. No team in MLB has scored less than the 129 runs the Cards have. Can anyone really see this team losing less than 90 games? Not me. They are the 2006 Cubs. #1 & #2 starters on the DL. Slow starts by their best players. And on and on.
Kip Wells? He threw 125 pitches in 5 innings on Wednesday, a memory that I thought would only apply to White Sox fans. Sidney Ponson? Ryan Franklin? Gary Bennett? Cards fans keep telling me that Marquis will take a colossal flop here in Chicago, sooner or later. I have 2 words for them. Braden Looper. That won’t last.
Anyhow, it’s just kind of weird to see the Cardinals be so bad, especially after winning it all last year. No complaints here though.
