Cardinals - Signed Sir Lush-a-lot
St. Louis Cardinals - Signed P Sidney Ponson to a 1-year contract; signed 1B Brian Daubach to a minor-leagueg contract.
Personally, I think Ponson’s arm is shot, but I guess it’s worth a flyer since the Cardinals won’t have to pay much for him. That ZiPS projection makes me think that my spreadsheet just got back from a champagne jam with Sid. The problem will be if Anthony Reyes doesn’t get a starting job - he’s twice the pitcher that Ponson is.
Daubach’s still a good option for a team with nothing at 1B or DH, but this is just about the worst team for Daubach to latch onto - he has no positional flexibility (though he used to pretend to play 3B) and there’s this Pujols guy in front of him who always plays and hits a wee bit better than him.
