Victor Diaz to the Cardinals???

MLBtraderumors is reporting that the Cardinals are looking at Victor Diaz from the mets for Mark Worrell.

Personally I don't like the sound of this.  I think Diaz is a 4th outfielder at best and not any better than JRod or even Taguchi. He has more power than either but I'd rather see Craig Wilson come over because he has A) a better track record in the majors B) plays first and OF C) has a better OBP and D) hasn't been beaten out by Xavier Nady for a starting position.

Diaz's stats can be seen here:
