Gammons just said on ESPNews report that Grudzielanek is expected to sign with the Mets Thursday so the Mets will not have to owe the Cards a draft pick.

This is one of any number of scenarios I'd find acceptable as a means of getting Kazuo the hell out of the lineup and off the field.

Good for Grudz!! Was a great pick-up for StLouis last year, and the team knew it wasn't going to sign him beyond last year no matter what happened.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

The draft pick depends on whether or not the Cards offer him arbitration.

i am under the impression that per gurdz's contract the cards are not permitted to offer him arbitration. he signed for one year very cheaply to try to rebuild his market value and didnt want the whole draft pick thing to get in the way of him receiving offers.

I hadn't heard that but it wouldn't surprise me.

That's correct. The Cardinals cannot offer arbitration.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
