Goodbye & Good Luck

by LS Murphy

Julio Lugo may have played his last game for the St. Louis Cardinals. The team announced that he was traded to Baltimore pending the approval of the Commissioner's Office.

Unless the organization is playing a huge April Fool's joke on everyone including B.J. Rains of the Globe-Democrat and Joe Strauss of the Post-Dispatch, we won't see Lugo on Opening Day.

So what's it mean?

It means that Joe Mather, Allen Craig, and Nick Stavinoha are on the Opening Day roster. All three have had a fantastic spring and each deserves their spot on the team.

As long at the Commissioner's Office approves the deal, which seems likely, Lugo will be wearing different birds on his uniform in 2010. I wish him luck.

  1. I second the good luck, I am happy with what the team has without him.
