sunday papers

back home; ahhh, the comforts. some quick news items:

  • per this morning's post-dispatch: the junior spivey era may be about to end. jocketty's trying to trade for another 2bman; if he succeeds, spivey may be released. joe strauss's article says jocketty "continues to plumb both leagues for another infielder," suggesting that a search has been ongoing for some time; previous statements to the contrary from the front-office appear to have been mere smoke-blowing.
  • the phillies acquired david dellucci for robinson tejada; i doubt the cards could (nor should) have matched the offer.
  • anthony reyes pitched the first five innings of a combined no-hitter against norfolk -- 1 walk, 7 strikeouts. no word on how the two-seamer looked, or whether he even threw it.

add'l reading: my colleagues at Beyond the Boxscore have posted a preview of the cardinals' position players. season starts tomorrow; see you then.
