Cardinals To Shop Duncan?

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Although Tony La Russa is a big fan of outfielder and first baseman Chris Duncan, the Cardinals may feel the need to trade him for pitching. He would do wonders for an American League team because of his versatility. If the Cardinals could land a pitcher by trading Duncan, they could test the market for a free agent outfielder like Aaron Rowand. Duncan, 26,hit just .259, but had 21 HR and 70 RBI in 127 games. I expect he would draw interest from the Tigers, who are looking for an outfielder and possible DH as Gary Sheffield continues to have setbacks. I also think the White Sox, Giants, Rangers, and maybe the Blue Jays to be interested in him, but a lot will determine whether or not the other free agents opt out of their contracts.

If they trade him I hope it is for a young starter not a 40 year old vet so he can worked on by duncan I would think lowery from the giants garland from the white sox or nate robertson from the tigers would be a place to start.Also in eck I hope they let him walk they need to spend that money on pitching ro a bog bat and use ryan at ss
