Cardinals are “shopping Colby Rasmus widely”

Colby Rasmus

I guess we’ll soon see just how badly Colby Rasmus and his old man have angered the Cardinals. Let’s put two tweets together, shall we?

First, Danny Knobler of CBS “Cards now appear to be shopping Rasmus widely.”

Then Jon Paul Morosi of Fox: “Mariners among the teams that have inquired on Rasmus, source says.”

Really, there is nothing more akin to being shipped off to Siberia in today’s Major League Baseball than being traded to the Mariners. If the Cards were to do that, and were to do it at a time when Rasmus has less value than he’s ever had, that would probably tell you everything you need to know about how that organization feels about him.
