Brad Penny close to a deal with the Cardinals

Dec 7, 2009, 1:55 PM EST

Andrew Baggarly tweets that Brad Penny is close to making a deal with the St. Louis Cardinals and that the Giants are dropping out of the race. They must have a thing for starters who couldn’t hack it in Boston. Still, I assume they have a limit of one of those guys, which means that Smoltz could be on his way to the Nats, as rumored late last week.

Not sure why the Cards would take their chance on Penny. He’s perpetually out of shape. He has flamed out/quit in pennant races for a couple of years in a row.  He’s just a blah of a pitcher.

    Take that, you deep-thinking, living-in-your-moms-basement sabermatricians:

    “He’s just a blah of a pitcher”
