    I just noticed there is an ex-Cards farmhand on the Phillies 25-man roster, Edubray Ramos. I hadn’t seen his name posted in the forum before but he pitched in 2010 for the Cards’ Venezuelan Summer League team. He put up some rather ‘bleh’ numbers but he was only 17 at the time. 9 years later he has blossomed into a nice bullpen pitcher and was one of the best arms out of the Phillies bullpen with 2.32 ERA in 52 games (42.2 IP). Would’ve been good to have him in game than Holland, Cecil, Lyons, and Gregerson.

    The union might want to rethink their demand of no trades after the all star break. Teams signing players with the idea of flipping them at the deadline is keeping a lot of their members employed!

    Bud Norris’ contract is only a MiLB contract. Surely other can agree with me that doesn’t make sense. He was good enough last year to get a major league contract.

    he gets 3 million for making the team and he can earn another 1.25 million in incentives if he mkes the club. Apparently Bud had 3 offers and didn’t like any of them. Maybe this was the best bad offer?

    Also his deal has an opt out on March 21st.

    You think he’d make the club but yeah it’s kind of odd this is a minor league deal with a high dollar value if he makes the team. I think he’s banking on his ability even if it was on a minors pact.

    Teams don’t want to give up a 40-man spot until they are sure the guy can contribute.

    Or they’ve got three players healing from injuries and don’t yet know which player will heal most slowly. That could be us.

    If only Mo would also follow this philosophy perhaps the Cardinals wouldn’t have given out some stupid contracts the past few years.

    How do more non-roster camp invitees stop bad long-term contracts? Besides, the Cards do follow this philosophy. That is the way both Pena and Wieters were signed this off-season.

    But then, I don’t think you really wanted a serious answer, did you? 😉

    That will be the end for him likely. I think he wanted to have an opportunity to play for the Padres seeing as he grew up about an hour or so from San Diego.

    Walk em all Sam Freeman has been released. Braves paid him 169K for 45 days of work. He’ll latch on somewhere.

    Father Time remains undefeated. Craig turns 35 this summer and Freeman will celebrate his 32nd birthday.

    Greg Holland has been announced as the closer for D’Backs.

    Peter Borjous entered in the game for an injured BJ Upton tonight.
