What the heck is up with the Cardinals? They know that they still have to play next year, right? The only moves they've made this off-season (besides 40-man roster shuffling stuff) are 1) re-signing Scott Spiezio (ick) and 2) signing your friend and mine, Randy Kiesler, to a split contract. The blogs are not buzzing. Even the official Cards site seems to be mired in the post-World Series euphoria.
All the better for us, I guess.
In other parts of the world, some teams are doing things. Here's a report on the money spent by teams on this year's free-agent signings. I think you'll be surprised at how relatively low the average age of the Reds' free-agents have been.
