Mark Derosa traded to the Cards for Chris Perez & a PTBNL

rotoworld:

According to MLB.com's official Twitter account, the Cardinals have acquired Mark DeRosa for RHP Chris Perez and a player to be named later.
DeRosa was curiously held out of Saturday's lineup and was seen on the phone for a long period of time just before first pitch. The PTBNL will be crucial, but, as it stands, it seems the Indians got the short end of this deal. Perez is a top relief prospect, but DeRosa is one of the more versatile position players in the game and fits very well into the Cardinals' system. Plus, his bat isn't too shabby. The 34-year-old was hitting .270/.342/.457 with 13 home runs and 50 RBI in 278 at-bats for the Indians. Jun. 27 - 10:59 pm et

It was posted to the closer thread, with speculation if Perez becomes the #2 behind wood. But as the first significant trade of the season, it is worth its own thread here.

For those of us in NL only leagues, it will be interesting to see how much FAAB $$ will be bid on DeRosa. In NL only, 2B is very weak. Utley, Phillips, Uggla are cleary the top three. DeRosa fits in the same tier as solid NL only starters Lopez, Barmes, Hudson, Matsui, Sanchez and Schumaker.

So this trade will cause some scrambling in NL only leagues.

I'm in an NL-Only league on ESPN. On ESPN, DeRosa has 2B, 3B and OF eligibility. So he can plug virtually any spot on your roster. I have #1 waiver. Anything better supposed to be coming from the AL? I think it may be time to use it. Pretty much an everyday 800 OPS player with some HR power who should be batting in the top half of the Cards' lineup.

I think Matt Holliday might be a better choice, but not a lock for the NL. Tough choice.

Yeah, the latest rumor before the DeRosa trade was that the Cards were making a run at Holliday. That probably won't happen now (losing too much farm system, not that much extra salary to take on, etc). So I'm not sure who would get Holliday in the NL. ATL already made their big OF buy with prospects. CIN and CHI are already stacked up with OF players, but... maybe. SF, maybe but no rumors there. FLA is unlikely ($). NYM would be a great fit right now, but they're so injury crippled, can they give up the farm depth?

And of course, an AL team may get him too.

I corrected it a bit, if you don't mind.
And as Cubs fan I hate this trade. Cards get a good player to address a need.

Yay! I like this trade. ;-D

So where does DeRosa play? 3B? If 2B, what happens to Schumaker, and does this mean one of our OF is heading out the door?

They regret signing Kerry Wood and pretty much the rest of their bullpen. ;-7

I say 3B. If by some miracle Glaus comes back DeRosa can more to 2B.

Depending on the PTBNL I like this deal for the Cards.

3B seems the logical spot to me, too.

What's this do to the lineup? I'd think DeRosa would bat ahead of Albert vs. righties with Skip continuing to lead off. Would Tony actually bat him leadoff against lefties? We've long needed someone to fill that role. Or is our power need against lefties so voluminous that he slots in DeRosa after Albert?
