It's nice that Washington finally got a chance, but the Cardinals need a high-quality, backup corner infielder to spell Glaus and Pujols. Wes Helms has been DFA'd and Philly wants someone to pick up the $2.9 million left on his contract. That's a lot for a 31-year-old Matt Stairs-type who might be over the hill, but if he reverts to 2006 or even 2005 form he could be useful. He posted a 149 OPS+ in '06 in about 250 PAs and he's tough on lefties. I don't want to oversell someone who was bumped aside by Pedro Feliz, but this seems like an obvious chance to upgrade the roster.
