Colby Rasmus situation

Postby AquaMan2342 » Sun Sep 05, 2010 4:56 pm

:-S

Yahoo! Article wrote:The feud between St. Louis Cardinals center fielder Colby Rasmus(notes) and manager Tony La Russa turned from passive-aggressive to possibly unsalvageable Sunday morning when the 24-year-old implied he’d like to leave St. Louis, prompting star first baseman Albert Pujols(notes) to tell Yahoo! Sports “we need to figure a way to get him out of here.”


King Pujols wrote:“If he doesn’t want to be here next year, we need to figure out a way to get him out of here and find somebody that wants to be here and play,” Pujols told Yahoo! Sports before Sunday’s game against the Reds. “That’s a reality.

They could get a huge return in a trade if Albert really forces him out.

I think everyone's overblowing this. Rasmus asked for a trade earlier in the season. The Pujols quote wasn't "we need to get him out of here", it was, "if he doesn't want to play here, then we need to get him out of here". He then went on to say stuff about how Rasmus should just keep his mouth shut and let management handle these things. Bottom line, Cards don't have to trade him by any means. Rasmus may or may not be looking for a trade anymore...

So... Joe Torre isn't the only overmanaging manager screwing up young talent!

Not really. In a situation like this, the Cards lose leverage. It's like the Twins trading Wilson Ramos.
