Right-hander David Aardsma just signed a minor-league deal with the Cardinals, which wouldn’t be particularly newsworthy except for the fact that Aardsma was very outspoken on Twitter back when the Cardinals signed Jhonny Peralta to a four-year, $53 million deal in November. Here’s an Aardsma tweet from the day Peralta signed, November 23: Apparently getting…

When the Orioles signed shortstop J.J. Hardy to a three-year, $22.5 million extension in 2011, many figured he’d eventually become trade bait because of the need to make room for Manny Machado.
