Cards - Activated Rolen

St. Louis Cardinals - Activated 3B Scott Rolen from the 15-day DL; optioned OF Skip Schumaker to Memphis.

No, Dan didn’t forget his blog, but Dan hasn’t had access to internet for more than 5 minutes at a time for 4 or 5 days (long story).  Let’s try to get the recent transactions that haven’t been discussed to death and take it from there.

The Cardinals definitely had a dropoff in quality from Scott Rolen at 3rd to Abraham Nunez and Scott Seabol, but St. Louis is the only team in baseball that can really absorb a bunch of injuries and not blink an eyelash.  Not that they have incredible depth but simply are a really good team with a nice lead in a division full of mediocrity.  Still, it’s nice to have Rolen back.  Schumaker was used very sparingly but will get 300-400 career PA somewhere as a 5th outfielder.

To the All-Star Ballot Complain’ Crew:  Scott Rolen is a star.  I would’ve voted for him even if it were 9 at-bats so far this year and not 109.

I'm pretty sure the Royals, Devil Rays and Rockies among others can all absorb a bunch of injuries without blinking an eyelash.

Skip Schumaker is such a great name
