The Cardinals sign Nate Robertson

Aug 2, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

When last we saw Nate Robertson, he was getting pummeled by the Colorado Rockies back on July 20th.  The Marlins released him the next day.  Today the Cardinals continued to wow their fans with brilliant personnel moves by signing the rec-spectacled one to a minor league deal.  Robertson will report to Memphis after selling some whitewalls to the guy he has on hold.

I mock, but Robertson represents zero cost depth, and depth is a good thing. At least until you have to use it and depth gives up seven runs over three innings or something.  Beats forfeiting, though.

    I never kick someone when he’s down when I’ve already kicked him when he was down. Good luck, Nate. Can’t wait to see you strut your stuff again down at Joeprodolsharklife Stadium. The Feesh don’t score seven runs all that often.

    Dave Duncan works miracles.

    It’s easier to work miracles when you have a decent infield. Robertson won’t have Jorge Cantu to kick him around anymore, which is another way of saying that he’s liable to make Duncan look good by default.
