For the love of God, please stop talking about the price increase. Netflix is well worth whatever they charge. Period.
Mo got hosed. BTW, Ankiel sucks. He's injured and hits like a pitcher.
Extension "what ifs" don't count. It's two months of Holliday versus six years of Wallace (ages 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29). Stupid deal. Period.
Brendan Ryan is the Cardinals starting shortstop for the foreseeable future. The guy has a slick glove and isn't horrible at the plate. Hopefully, Lugo will only replace left-handed hitting Joe Thurston off the bench. Thurston has been terrible this year but all of the Cardinals' other middle infielder candidates hit from the right side. (Descalso won't get a look until spring training.) I like the "turd for turd" description. The Cardinals just needed a heathier turd in a different position. I assume it's the same for the Red Sox.
This just means they're going to have to give up a similar amount in salaries they may take in.
Mitch beat me to it. It's ridiculous to include Wallace or Daryll Jones in any deal right now. Both are only a year or so from the majors. Giving up Ludwick, (Motte, Perez or McClellan), and a Grade C prospect is plenty. If not, move on.
I agree with STX CARDSFAN. Giving up Wallace for a four-month rental of Holliday is ridiculous. (Same with Daryl Jones, so don't ask.)
