Cardinals Sign Izturis

Friday, November 30, 2007

The Cardinals signed Cesar Izturis to a one year contract, replacing David Eckstein. The deal is worth 2.85 million dollars, so it isn't exactly bad, but Izturis is not a starter. He is above average defensively, but did not play very well in the NL Central over the past two seasons. By not signing Eckstein, it seems that they will focus on pitching coming into next weeks Winter Meetings.

Now instead of groping Aramis, he has Albert Pujols to grab his junk when he hits a home run, lol!
