The Cardinals are going after David "Boomer" Wells, who is being shopped around by the Boston Red Sox.
No idea who we would give up in return. Maybe cash and a player to be named later?
According to Bernie at his pressbox, Theo Epstein reportedly wanted Chris Duncan, Adam Wainwright, or Colby Rasmus for Wells. Walt immediately decided against pursuing the veteran lefty pitcher.
While I would love to have Wells, I would not be about to give up any of those three.
I'd love to get Barry Zito in a Cardinal uniform if we go after a lefty. He's an AL pitcher so he'd dominate the NL! Brandon Webb would be another guy I'd love to have on the Cards but he'd likely go to the Reds since Ashland is close to Cincy. But signing Zito, IMO, depends on what happens with Mulder since they are friends.
