I’ve said before that I thought trading Colby Rasmus would be a bad move for the Cardinals. Colby is a guy that if he can get hot at the plate, he’s an all-start hitter and a all-star fielder. But obviously the relationship between Rasmus and Tony LaRussa was not that great. So maybe this is best for both parties. I for the most part enjoyed Colby’s time in St.Louis and I wish him the best of luck in Toronto.
Meanwhile I welcome Edwin Jackson to St.Louis, I haven’t really watched him this year seeing as I don’t really follow the White Sox, but from what I hear, he’s an innings eater, with a low home run rate. He’s an upgrade from McClellan who now goes back to the bullpen to help there. The only thing I’m worried about with Jackson is the fact that’s he’s a free agent come Winter. Will we be able to re-sign both him and Albert?? Hopefully Jackson will help us alot and can give us a really good chance at winning every 5 days.
