Well, let's just get this straight. I like Jeff. He was one of the most likeable guys in the clubhouse during his first years with the team, and he was a decent pitcher. 4 years after he left for the Brewers, not so much. I don't think I need to argue that he can't pitch in the majors anymore, but that doesn't mean the Cardinals will release him.
The Cardinals just signed Nate Robertson (who has also been bad, but not AS bad) and have Lohse and maybe Penny coming back. Suppan won't have a spot in the rotation or bullpen, but with the team's history do you think they'll cut him?
