Trade Traffic

Deadline has come and gone. I suppose the Card's big-wigs know more about this stuff than I do. I kept hearing the same refrain from players and "importants" alike: "We don't want to upset the balance." Marching to the beat of "If it ain't broke don't fix it," the Cardinals silently went through July 31--confidently. We will see if this will be another year of the "sins of the past."

Most important transactions:(in order of importance)

A. Cardinals staying put

B. Nomar-Cubs think they can make a run at the post-season by improving a glaring weakness. Once they get there, they are relying on pitching getting healthier. This trade should worry the most confident of Cardinal fans.

C. Loaiza-Yankees gain a VERY quality starter to an already stellar rotation. At what point will the Bombers stop spending $$? Does Steinbrenner have a limit? How much CAN he spend? Shouldn't teams at some point wisen up and stop selling their "pennant-souls" to the AL NYers?

Sorry to be gone for so long (for the three people who read my blog). Moving is so fun...
