Cardinals - Signed Westbrook
St. Louis Cardinals - Signed P Jake Westbrook to a 2-year, $16.5 million contract.
I was shocked when ZiPS told me Jake Westbrook just turned 33. Apparently, I’m getting senile as I quickly approach middle-age because I think of Westbrook as a Yankee prospect a million years ago along with Sam Militello and Sterling Hitchcock. But apparently that was a decade earlier. I’m losing decades now?
It’s a bit of an overpay, but I think this is going to common with any starting pitcher signings this offseason as the starter market after Cliff Lee is thinner than the plot to Lethal Weapon 5. Jorge de la Rosa is going to get a surprisingly ridiculous amount of money in the next month or so.
St. Louis is a good place to be for Westbrook, thanks to that creepy mojo that Dave Duncan has with older pitchers, kind of a creepy reverse Children of the Corn thing. ZiPS doesn’t believe in the supernatural, so I expect Westbrook will beat both the inning totals and ERA.
