Spezio's Sticking Around

Postby JTWood » Thu Nov 16, 2006 9:42 pm

ST. LOUIS -- Scott Spiezio and the St. Louis Cardinals agreed to a $4.5 million, two-year contract Thursday, keeping one of the team's top reserves with the World Series champions.

The deal includes a club option for 2009.

Spiezio, 34, revived his career with the Cardinals last season. He signed a minor league contract and made the team as a utility player, making 61 starts and playing five positions. The switch-hitter batted .272 with 13 home runs and 52 RBI in 119 games.

He led the team with eight pinch-hit RBI, including a three-run triple on the final weekend of the season to help St. Louis hang on and win the NL Central title.

The World Series champions' first two moves of the offseason have been retaining key players. Jim Edmonds signed a two-year, $19 million contract last week.

I'm glad he is staying. He came up with some huge hits this year.

Oquendo needs to work with him at 2B cause I would love to have his bat in the lineup more.
