which planet am I on again?





When did...????

The Cardinals released Adam Kennedy????

Sorry. I'm gonna need a minute to, um... do some stuff... in my head. You know.

Okay, I've almost fully recovered. I can't say I have the foggiest idea where this came from (cough, Tony), or why now of all times, but there you go. If I were AK I'd be sorely ticked. Not that he didn't ask for it, but still. A week before ST. Not only did he not get the off-season to look for work or plan his retirement or whatever, but he also doesn't even get an opportunity to earn the job after all this.

To clarify, I wish they'd have traded him earlier. I was under the impression that we didn't go after an intermedista this off-season because of the $4 million we are going to be paying AK anyway. As though to say, "The job is Kennedy's to lose." Well, I've learned my lesson. I'll never presume to know what Mozeliak is thinking ever again. Promise.

A week before ST and we don't have a second baseman.

A week before ST and... you get the picture.

Somebody tell me this was a good idea. (Cue the minor league experts and their lists of prospects...)

And what the fudge about Aaron Miles????

(Did I say I was done complaining?)
