the cards survived without rolen for awhile so i think they will keep on chugging along without reggie. i really wish edmonds would take a little more control out there because he frequently seems to have communication problems with the other outfielders.
anyway, the cards have called up 27yo johnny rodriguez who was acquired for dirt earlier in the season from the cleveland indians organization. spent several years with the yankees org prior to that doing a whole lot of nothing. however, since he was assigned to memphis he hit .342 with 17 homers and 47 rbi in 33 games. the cards could also get a little more active in the trade market. i had heard they inquired about david delucci a week or two ago.
