Cardinals signed infielder Brent Butler, who had been with the Rockies, to a one-year contract. Butler, who hit .248 with a 665 OPS in 553 AB over three seasons with the Rockies, wasn't worthy of a major league deal. Since he got one, it appears that he's being penciled onto next year's squad as a utility infielder.


Cardinals signed first baseman Steve Cox to a one-year contract. Cox, released by his Japanese team last month, could be a cheap solution at first base for St. Louis. However, the team figures to continue to pursue a left fielder for the purposes of moving Albert Pujols to first. Cox, 29, hit .262 with a 757 OPS in 378 games for Tampa Bay before signing with the Yokohama BayStars prior to last season.


the cards have a pretty thin system but they have guys better than this. any one know why the hell they dont just bring them up instead of signing these guys.

Is there a list, i would love to see the minor league rankings...

Cle still number one?


Depends who's list you go by. Baseball America does as good on minors as anyone. Don't have their lastest rankings handy, but Cleveland is top 5, no doubt. I like Anaheim alot. I would have those two 1-2. Cubs and Braves are up there. Cards are at bottom.

WRVERES Cards brought up Dan Haren, one of their few and only legit prospects. They are bare.

PS If anyone has the Oct 26 edition of BA, turn to last page and read Stark. He rambles about mvp has to be from a winner. That guy gets on my nerves lol. I'm going to send him a e-mail.
