Sorry, I’m sorta slippin’

I just started a new job, moved to a new apartment, and as of now I have no internet until I get some dough for a DSL hookup. I’m still going to try and post when I when I can, but with all the stuff going on it’s been a little hard. It won’t be long until Reverend Redbird puts back on the his red clerical collar…..
Lots of stuff going around lately, especially in the rumors department. Miggy Cabrera? Sounds far-fetched, but this is the Fire-Sale fish we are talking about here, and Miggy is due for a big raise. It would be dream come true and Miggy would be well worth parting with almost anyone in the system in order to get him, yes, even Anthony Reyes. If this is true, the right Reverend will name his firstborn son Walt. (Seriously, I think I would.) Miggy’s top 3 comps through age 22, three Hall of Famers, starting with Hank Aaron, then Frank Robinson, and former El Birdo “Cha Cha” Cepeda.
Speaking of Walt, there is a new Cardblogger out there-Chris is running the site www.inwaltwetrust.com. Check it out.
Other Cardinal rumors-Victor Diaz for Jason Marquis. I’m not really that hot on this deal unless perhaps the Mets were willing to throw in Jeff Keppinger or Anderson Hernandez in the deal. I’m not really sure of any of these players really, but with the 2nd base job competion starting up with a rousing thud (Luna only has 3 hits and 2 walks in 18 Ab’s, Spivey has only 1 hit it 18 Ab’s.) it would be nice to have some other second sackers in the mix. I don’t know much about either Keppinger’s or Hernandez’s defense, and with Kaz Matsui looking like a total bust, I’m not sure they’d be willing to part with both Diaz and a 2nd base prospect.
Well, speaking of races for jobs, Larry Bigbie is looking strong so far, and J-Rod has took a bad turn. I thought this winter he could win the job possibly, but now he may end up in Memphis so Chris Duncan can stay up. Dunc leads the team in ab’s thus far, meaning he’s getting a long look. He’s done okay so far, hitting a couple of home runs. As far as the 5th starter’s job goes, Reyes was better today then he was in his last outing, but he was arguably one upped again by Ponson, who pitched 4 innings and didn’t allow a run. Reyes needs to do a little more to get noticed this spring if he wants that job…
