REALLY STL? JUAN GONZALEZ?
Gonzalez is 38 and was recently noted in the Mitchell Report. Insert joke about La Russa, Cardinals players and steroids here. He was pretty much washed up in 2004 when he hit the last chance dance by becoming a Kansas City Royal. He stunk it up there and signed with the Tribe for the 2005 season. In his one at-bat with the Indians he tore his hamstring.
Maybe there is some new cream and clear making the rounds.
Other players reportedly invited to spring training by the Cards:
- George Foster
- Lonnie Smith
- Sixto Lezcano
- Mel Hall
- Larry Biitner
- Champ Summers
- Enos Cabell
Should be a stellar year in STL.
