Scott Spiezio re-signed for two years

Scott Spiezio is back as a Cardinal for the next two years.
The St. Louis Cardinals re-signed utility man Scott Spiezio to a two-year contract on Thursday.

The deal runs through the 2008 season with a club option for 2009.

The 34-year old Spiezio joined St. Louis prior to last season and proved to be a versatile player for the World Series champs, playing five different positions (first base, second base, short stop, third base and left field).

In 119 games, including 61 starts. the switch-hitting Spiezio hit .272 with 13 home runs and 52 runs batted in. In the postseason, Spiezio contributed six RBI and two triples, including a critical three-bagger in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series.

"You hear the term winning player," said Cardinals senior vice president and general manager Walt Jocketty. "Scott showed once again why he has been tabbed with such a label. Scott's leadership, versatility and production in the clutch are such strong qualities and we're happy to announce that he will remain a Cardinal."
