not likely. We still have the slumping/not good tandem of Ankiel and Duncan to play in the OF, too. Luddy hasn't been worse than those two.

And, as alluded to above, DeRosa will probably spend most of his time at 3rd, though you never know with LaRussa.

STL OF today is Ankiel, Ludwick, DeRosa with Khalil Greene at 3B.

Edit: DeRosa has slotted in behind Albert pushing Ludwick down to 5th

This is classic La Russa. He can slot DeRosa in LF versus LHP, and 3B versus RHP. K-Greene and Thurston lose playing time at 3B. Dunc/Ank lose time versus LHP.

The Cardinals just got significantly better. Unless DeRosa's leg injury from running into that phone box is secretly a long term issue.

Each of the infielders (minus Pujols) records an error today, while DeRosa plays LF. Great move by Tony.

Dont forget Thurston making yet another jackass decision on the bases when he should've been DFA'd the moment the trade went through.

As to the fantasy impact -- I wouldn't use my waiver priority on him just yet. DeRosa is still very streaky and extremely susceptible to RH pitching. He's a great start against lefties, especially soft tossers, but power righties will give him fits and I just don't see how you can use a #1 priority on that.

I'd sit on it and see if Holliday comes over. The Brewers and Cubs are likely to make a move, the Mets, Braves and Phils could as well. Then there are surprise callups like Bumgarner and Alvarez (especially for keeper leaguers).

I wouldn't burn the priority on a platoon player.

DeRosa is probably the worst defensive IF on the team so I don't see how playing him at 2B or 3B negates this at all.

DeRosa left the game after 2 AB tonight. He injured his wrist (according to La Russa @ postgame). Utterly no information on how serious it is. You know, 1 day, or rest of season, or anything inbetween.

I have top waiver priority and waivers process in 4 hours, NL-Only league :(

You got to ask yourself one question:

"Do you feel lucky?"

"Well do ya...PUNK?"
