Cardinals making statement in NL Central

I am certainly not a fan of the Cardinals team – never have been. But it’s hard to argue with their methods.  Cardinals GM John Mozeliak has acquired Mark DeRosa, Julio Lugo, and now Matt Holliday to bolster his offense in pursuit of the NL Central Division Championship. The Cards are doing what they believe it will take to win.

Cubs GM Jim Hendry really has to conjure up some magic to add to this club within his apparent financial constraints. I put forth some possibilities yesterday but the Cubs will likely have to get more creative than I did to impress. Now with the Ted Lilly DL confirmed and breaking news this morning of getting his knee scoped as long as he has to rest his tendinitis-stricken arm, this team might need a starting pitcher as well. The list is growing for the Cubs front office.

Mark DeRosa is 6 for 18 with 3 HRs in his past 5 games, Julio Lugo had a triple and a HR in his St. Louis debut yesterday, and of course Matt Holliday went 4 for 5 with a stolen base in his debut. The Cards are looking scary.
