The Nooner #7: Cardinals sign Reyes

The Cardinals signed lefty reliever Dennys Reyes today. Kind of surprising since they already had five lefthanders in camp: Trever Miller, Royce Ring, Charlie Manning, Ian Ostlund and Katsuhiko Maekawa. Reyes certainly adds an air of credibility that these others don’t quite have. What this tells me is either a) Duncan and LaRussa have been less than impressed with most of what they’ve seen from their lefties, or b) this was the plan all along, and the team was waiting for the market to play itself out. Thoughts?

  1. Guess they want to corner the market on lefties!

    Yeah, that only works if they’re good lefties, so we’ll see. :)

    I’m thinking they don’t like what they see 100%. I was never sold on Ring and Miller (still not) but I trust TLR and Dunc to work it the best way they can.

    I think our lefty situation maybe be “quantity” over “quality”. Time will tell.
