Quick Hits: Dodgers, Cardinals, Inglett, Broderick

Saturday evening linkage…

  • Frank McCourt told Dylan Hernandez of The Los Angeles Times that the Dodgers' roster would look the same even if the team didn't have financial problems. He was also vague about future payroll plans if the multi-billion dollar deal with FOX were to be approved (Twitter link).
  • B.J. Rains of FOXSportsMidwest.com points out that the Cardinals will have to make room for Brian Tallet when the lefty comes off the disabled list next week (Twitter links). He doesn't think they'll cut ties with the struggling Ryan Franklin, but he says it's "debatable." 
  • MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports that Joe Inglett has accepted his outright assignment and will join the Astros' Triple-A affiliate (on Twitter). Inglett could have elected free agency after clearing waivers earlier in the week.
  • Nationals GM Mike Rizzo believes that pitcher Brian Broderick has a bright future in the big leagues, despite being DFA'd by the club earlier today, writes Bill Ladson of MLB.com.
  • Manager Dusty Baker is curious to see if the newly activated Jose Arredondo can provide the Reds with the kind of pitching they expected upon signing him.
  • Dave Gershman of Beyond The Box Score examined the market for Padres pitcher Dustin Moseley.

Dear heavens, why would the Cards NOT cut ties with Franklin.  They have Bautista if they need an arm for mop-up/give the other team a double digit lead type of work.  If you fill your pen with LOOGY’s and only low-leverage guys, who’s going to actually throw the innings?

Franklin has no business being on the team and in the bullpen, the right move is to DFA him.  What they will do is send down the lefty hitting 1B… who I have no idea what his name is. Franklin will find the DL soon enough, and every Card fan knows that!

Also, Trevor Miller is a “lefty Specialist”, that can’t get “lefties” out!  Cards have problems in the bullpen.

Would you look at that. The Span Man made his way from the commenting section right on to a quick hits line.
