Cardinals get Wells, Kennedy

The Cards finally made their first moves: they signed Adam Kennedy, brought in Kip Wells, resigned Gary Bennett, and gave Eli Marrero a minor-league deal.  No monetary details, but Bernie Miklasz guesses $15M for three years, while Rosenthal thinks it's three years for $10M.

With Kennedy, Bennett, Scott Spiezio, and Jim Edmonds on board for 2007, the Cardinals appear to have their position players mostly set.  They'll probably still add an outfielder, but that would seem to be a low priority.  Wells is a nice addition to fill out the rotation, but even counting on Adam Wainwright in the rotation, that leaves one more hole to fill.  My money's on Jeff Weaver coming back, but surely Walt Jocketty is exploring plenty of options, including some via trade.
