An Iconic Fantasy Baseball Community
Moderator: Baseball Moderators
KTRS Radio reported Sunday night that the Cardinals are close to a deal with Travis Lee. They would likely move Albert Pujols back to left field and let Lee man first base -- which would be welcome news to the ground-ball pitchers on the staff, as Lee is an outstanding defensive first baseman. An additional left-handed bat would help as well.
In an interview Sunday night with St. Louis TV station KSDK, manager Tony La Russa was very emphatic about the need to keep Pujols "as part of the core." Pujols is expected to receive a high arbitration salary, and despite occasional public chatter over whether it would be better to trade the young superstar for pitching, La Russa noted that Pujols "could be like a Stan Musial" in St. Louis.
