Kinda sorta

2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch the Cardinals have signed former closer Jason Motte to a minor league deal.

Jason Motte agreed to terms with the Cardinals on a minor-league deal that will become official after he passes a physical Monday, a source confirmed Friday. The agreement includes a non-roster invitation to big-league camp, but no promises for the righthander, who last pitched for the Cardinals in 2014.

Baseball-wise, this move is not super exciting, but feels-wise, MOTTE IS BACK. Let us celebrate by watching him close out the 2011 World Series:
