I'm new, so my posts are going to be pretty crappy at first, especially after coming from the disorganized mess of ESPN boards.
Anyway, anyone think there's a possibility of the Cards signing Pat Burrell? I think the first move the Cards make in the offseason regarding trades/free agents (Not counting Lohse) is going to set the stage for the rest of the offseason.
What I mean is, if the Cards get Furcal...then Schu (just an example, it would be an OF) gets traded along with a few others and that opens the door for that "luxury" "presence" that I keep hearing about. Or, if the Cards resign Lopez, we might get to see Edgar again, or Cabrerra, and then we get a decent starting pitcher. Anyone think Roberts is a possibility?
It seems to me that the team can take two paths this offseason...they can make the big splash by getting someone like Burrell, or go the cheaper way and build up the supporting group, which would leave some money for a ?Lowe? Either way, I think the team is going to get old in few positions, perhaps sacrifice defense for more production, and we're going to see a few players paid too much.
P.S. Where's Kennedy going to end up?
