Cardinals manger Tony La Russa acknowledged Monday that the organization has interest in free agent closer Brandon Lyon.
La Russa has basically admitted that he has no faith in Chris Perez or Jason Motte. "The optimum thing is not to ask Chris or Jason to close in '09," said the manager on Monday. "Let them grow into the role when they're ready to take it. So who else is out there?" Lyon saved 26 games for the Diamondbacks last season while posting an ERA of 4.70 and a WHIP of 1.48. He struck out 44 batters in 59 1/3 innings.

Sometimes you have to give to get.
