    Re: Cardinals resign Mulder

    I hope they bring back Scully, too.

    I really thought the Yankees or Red Sox would go after him, especially after the success of Jon Lieber. But maybe they decided Mulder wasn't worth the risk.

    Neither of them can really afford to wait half a season for his return. By then, the Yankees could have a big lead (what I hope happens) or the BoSox could have a big lead (what I don't want to happen).

    True. I guess with Lieber the Yankees signed him knowing he would be out a full season and then return the following spring training. Maybe the Yankees didn't go after him after the non-success of Dotel last season.

    Well, the Cardinals need bodies to put into that rotation, which has Carpenter, Mulder, maybe Reyes and ... uh, is there anyone else left?

    Unless he's forced to close games again, which was my presumption.

    God, I hope not.

    Yeah, because the Yankees and Red Sox don't have 15 other All-Stars to compensate.

    Mulder's coming off shoulder surgery. He's unlikely to be any good this season. This is about 2008 and surviving in a market where Gil Meche gets $3.5 trillion for eight years.

    I didn't mean in terms of money, jag.

    He's good for 11 wins and a 5.00 ERA
