Cards Interested In Braden Looper

Word on the street is that the Cardinals plan on making a run at Braden Looper this week to add some depth to their bullpen. 

Looper had a lost '05 - his HR rate shot up, his lost his 2004 gains in control, and his K rate plummeted.  He lost his closer's title in September and was an the operating table the following month (shoulder surgery).  With the AC joint arthritis cleaned up, it's worth a million bucks on the Cards' part to see if he can return to 2004 levels in a setup role.


The Cardinals are also poking their head around to see how much Octavio Dotel is asking for.  Dotel may not be ready til midseason, but many Cardinal fans think they'll have the division locked up by then anyway.

Thanks to Drew
