If Hudson wins the rotation spot, wonder if that means the Cardinals will trade Gant. I like Gant quite a bit, and think he’s a good back end starter or solid reliever, but if he’s in the bullpen that might push out someone like Mayers or maybe even Reyes? Either way, could see signs pointing to a trade before the end of spring training. That’s just a thought.

Cecil is toast. Last 2 times out he's walked, and hit a batter, respectively. I'd put him in extended ST with Carlos. There's no way he finds his way being the last guy out of the bullpen.

Right when he was poised to be the feel-meh story of the year.

I think Gant will stick in the bullpen. Reyes should probably start in the Memphis rotation and be in the St. Louis rotation later this season when the inevitable injury/ineffectiveness/impotent issue happens with one or more of the starters. Cecil should be sent to Memphis and the Cardinals can pray someone would grab him off waivers. Or just rocketed toward Alpha Centauri.

Now now. That 0.5 WAR wasn't just going to amass itself.

Brett Cecil, the hero of Leo Tolstoy's great novel Half WAR and Piece.

Cecil was the top lefty reliever available in that FA class. It's not like the front office knew he was going to turn into one of the worst pitchers in baseball.
