You're Not Going To Believe This ....
[December 24th] -- The St. Louis Cardinals are reporting this morning that Junior Spivey has signed a one year contract to play with the club for the 2006 season. In their press release, team officials say that they have "had an interest" in Spivey for "two or three years" and that he will be given every opportunity to earn the starting second baseman's job in spring training.
Both Cruz and Spivey weren't "good enough" to remain with an 81 win cellar-dweller, but they're both good enough to end up as the top two second baseman for the Cardinals, a team that's won 100 games the last two seasons.
Second base. Second base. Aaaaaaaahhh. Years from now, this will be known as the Soriano curse ofthe damned.
