Belliard to St. Louis?
Posted by disappointmentzone on 29 July 2006
On Inside Baseball this afternoon it was reported that the Cardinals are interested in acquiring Indians 2B Ronnie Belliard, who came off the disabled list last night. I don’t have a link for the story. Meanwhile, the Rangers remain in the market for starting pitching, which means Westbrook is probably still on the market. Fortunately for the Indians the Rangers didn’t give up much minor league talent to acquire Carlos Lee from the Brewers. With the possibility of Belliard leaving, it becomes crucial that the Indians be able to replace him. Because of this, if Belliard were to go to St. Louis I would expect it means that there is an additional trade in the works to bring a 2B to Cleveland.
