Cardinals Acquire Maroth

Mike MarothFormer Detroit Tigers pitcher Mike Maroth was acquired by the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, after many rumors that he would be dealt to another team. With the return of Kenny Rogers to the Tigers pitching staff, Mike Maroth did not have a place on the Tigers starting rotation. Whom the Tigers received in return for Maroth has not been disclosed yet.

Don’t yet count out the Cardinals. Yes its a long shot that they’d win their division, but they have many crucial players on the DL who could help them have a 2007 playoff run. The Cards have shown that they are not ready to go down this season, acquiring both Tomo Ohka and Mike Maroth. They also are said to be interested in Chicago white Sox ace Mark Buehlre. If the Red Birds can keep their heads above water just long enough until Jim Edmonds, David Eckstein, Braden Looper, Yadier Molina, Preston Wilson, Mark Mulder and ace Chris Carpenter return from the DL, then they could be the scrappy team to beat that they were last year.
