St. Louis Cardinals
Released 1B-OF Steve Cox and IF Brent Butler.
The Cardinals continue to operate in the strange Nintendo Baseball Stars roster manner - having great frontline talent and a sparse, weak bench since players never get injured or tired. Neither Cox or Butler would have been plus contributors, but this is a team which has Plan B options of So Taguchi, Kerry Robinson, Colin Porter, Ray Lankford, and Wilson Delgado at various positions.
And before anyone protests, yes, Lankford was a great player in the 90s and I like him a lot and the manner in which his departure was orchestrated reflected very poorly on the organization, but he’s high in years and it’s been awhile since he’s been performing in the majors.
Cox and Butler will find jobs somewhere, either in AAA or heading to Japan. They are Baseball Stars players in their own right - every veteran Baseball Stars player knows the value of names with 6 letters or less.
