Juan Gonzalez a Cardinal

This isn't news about the Milwaukee Brewers, but it is just something fun that you all should know. Juan Gonzalez is set to sign a minor league deal with the St. Louis Cardinals.

I know it's just a minor league deal, but I find it a little hard to believe that the Cardinals could not find anyone better than Juan to fill that vacancy. However, with Ankiel, Rasmus, and Duncan patrolling the field for the Red Birds, it is highly unlikely Juan will ever see the field at the new Busch Stadium.

It's amazing that players like Kevin Mench and Kenny Lofton have not signed with a team, yet Juan Gonzalez has signed a contract. Perhaps this is nothing but a publicity move for St. Louis, as they have done absolutely nothing this off-season. That is, except trade Jim Edmonds to San Diego for a Class-A prospect who will never see the field.
