Cardinals Pull Another Starter Off Scrap Heap

The St. Louis Cardinals are desperate for starting pitching, and it shows. ESPN.com is reporting that they "acquired right-hander Joel Pineiro, optioned to the minors last week by the Boston Red Sox, and cash for a minor league player to be named." Pineiro certainly isn’t going to fill the void left by injured ace Chris Carpenter but I guess when you have Kip Wells and Anthony Reyes combining for 23 of the Cardinals 53 losses, you can’t be too picky. Who knows, maybe this will turn into another Dave Duncan reclamation success story.

Stay tuned, only 2 and a half hours left until the deadline.
