Cardinals - Signed Looper
St. Louis Cardinals - Signed P Braden Looper to a 3-year, $13.5 million contract.
You have a second base battle between Aaron Miles and Deivi Cruz the upcoming season, you cry about money, even though you’re awash in it, and you spend more than $4 million a year on an OK setup man? I normally like Jocketty, but the Cardinals have had quite the unproductive offseason. Interestingly enough, I was looking at game logs for closers last month and of all pitchers with 10 saves, Looper was saved the most by walkoff losses. By run expectancy, Looper’s ERA should have been 0.33 runs a game higher if he had to finish out his walkoff losses.
The STATS scouting report for Lupus is pretty funny after his 2005 season.
Yup, they love the guy in New York now.
Looper should be the primary setup man for the Cardinals and taken out quickly against lefties. In all seriousness, he should pitch decently for the Cardinals - Looper’s a groundballer and the redbirds should have a nice defensive infield again.
