This is a tad too much money, but eh, brings a legitmate set-up guy in for the Cardinals. Gives the Redbirds a closer, an 8th inning reliever, and a left in Rincon. Not the greatest bullpen in the world, but beats using a bunch of unproven talent in the 8th.
Cardinals still need an OF bat, but they're in a position to win the NL Central.
...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
