There have been numerous reports recently that the St. Louis Cardinals are interested in White Sox starter Jake Peavy.
The Seattle Mariners extended Felix Hernandez’s contract on Thursday and many St. Louis Cardinal fans reacted quickly, feeling Adam Wainwright’s price tag just went up. The problem with that thought is simple, Hernandez is no Wainwright, he’s much, much better.
It would not be a St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training without health questions surrounding a key player, and once again a member of the starting rotation is awaiting test results analysis and a diagnosis before throwing again.
Spring Training is about a month or so away for the St. Louis Cardinals, and plenty of intrigue surrounds the team as they head for Florida.
Strong leadership is essential. Maybe the Cardinal problem is they lack it.
