Cardinals - Signed Encarnacion and Spivey
St. Louis Cardinals - Signed OF Juan Encarnacion to a 3-year, $15 million contract; signed 2B Junior Spivey to a 1-year, $1.2 million contract.
No complaints about the latter signing - Spivey’s areally good, though injury-prone 2B and probably the best 2B option on the team at the moment. The Cardinals have a million second basemen now, so they’re equipped for his inevitable injury.
Encarnacion’s a different matter. There are different opinions on Encarnacion’s defense from various sources but he’s a mediocre hitter at best. The more mediocrities the Cardinals lock in, the greater the burden will be placed on the amazing Pujols/Edmonds/Rolen combo. I’d actually rather have Jacque Jones and his deal on the Cardinals - at least he has an exploitable platoon split. I don’t think Encarnacion’s even a good incarnation of John Rodriguez.
