I head Jocketty on the radio the other night and he said the priority is re-signing the FA. Renteria, Matheny and Womack. Woody and Morris were not mentioned which makes me think they aren't coming back. After re-signing the FA, getting SP in next.
That's what I keep saying. Yes, Polanco is a good 2B, but he's not what the Cardinals need
. They need a solid leadoff man and a good defensive 2B. He's a good fielder, but he doesn't fit what they need offensively.
That's good news if that's in fact the case. Renteria keeps saying he loves playing in STL, and he would really endear himself to the fans more than he already has if he gave some sort of home town discount to prove it.
