So I did some thinking since I posted this...The Cardinals need starting pitching; The Devil Rays need an OF. Earlier this week someone 'speculated' that Skip Schumaker could be dealt to the Rays (mlbtraderumors.com). So maybe, just maybe, the Cardinals are going to trade one of Barton, Ludwick, Schumaker to the Rays for a pitcher. This makes sense for both teams imo...the Rays get a serviceable OF and the Cards get a SP prospect (maybe Hammel, Howell, Nieman, etc...altho I may value some of them over the Cards OF??). Anyway, so they have this deal in the works and bring Rasmus back up to play some CF again. This also moves Ankiel back over to RF, leaves the extra bench OF available to fill in for Duncan in LF when he plays first for Pujols, who they now realize cant play everyday of the week...they just said he may sit 1-3 games a week this year.
So there is my thought...what does everyone else think??
Oh, and if you will...is it 'normal' to play a guy in ST even after you send them to AAA...No right??
