I'm just trying to keep all of the happenings straight so I thought I'd put them here and let you guys straighten them out for me.
Renteria: Boston's made an offer or will make an offer for about what the Cardinals are willing to pay I think $8million range? I read somewhere that TB is looking to move Lugo to the Sox? If that's true that would be a huge break for STL I think. BOS needs to save money where they can I think and they wouldn't want to commit long term to Renteria anyway would they? I may be missing something but I think STL still has the inside track to land him. He likes playing for the Cards and the Cards (especially LaRussa) want him back.
Hudson: With LA apparently ready to jump in and give up quite a bit for him IMO, it looks like STL may be falling back a little, but I guess that's right where Walt wants to be.
Clement: He still appears to be in the pitcure doesn't he? I read that his agent was in talks with STL but I'm not sure how serious they were.
Lowe: OK I have to admit this one caught me off guard, but the more you think about it the more it seems to make sense. I'm not sure if he's as good as he was last year in the playoffs, but he keeps the ball down and if Renteria comes back that will really help him to have an infield of Gold Glovers behind him.
I'm not really sure what price range he's gonig to fall in, it probably won't be cheap but it has to be lower than if the Yanks and BoSox were in on him, right?
