Cardinals Sign John Smoltz
smoltz.jpgBarring an unforeseen (read: never in a million fucking years is someone picking up 1.5 million left in 2009 for Smoltz) the Cardinals will sign to right hander to a contract this week.

He will be a starter... at least that's the plan for now.

The Post-Dispatch broke this story earlier this evening.

INSTANT REACTION:

Good move. Very low risk, possibly high reward. If we're to believe the mainstream media, Adam Wainwright and Mark DeRosa were all but giving the GM a handy to get this guy in house, so I think the players are going to be receptive.

Plus, if nothing else, he's been in a shitload of playoffs, so that's got to help some of the younger players as the Cardinals look to be headed for the postseason for the first time since 2006.
