Hey I'd rather have Cody Ross but apparently he's too rich for our blood.I said if we didn't sign a minf or trade for one I'd take a guy who could play the corner OF and some inf. Ross was my first choice but Wigginton is a decent plan B. He's a tad older but can backup all corner OF and inf spots and has played 2nd(not since 2010). He also has some pop although his OPS was awful last season. Let's Hope Mabry works with him.We weren't paying 5 million a year for a guys who's going to get 400PA. So if you had those expectations sorry but it wasn't happening.

Two things I'm mulling over:1) The Cards will not be quick to eat the contract. At $2.5 per, he will get playing time no matter how bad he turns out to be. Maybe he'll have a resurgance. I truly hope so.2) I can't imaginge how/why we could possibly need a Ty Wigginton in 2014.

Good move by Mozeliak.A guy who hit .234 vs LHP isn't what I thought Mo was looking for, pop or no pop.His 2012 line with RISP .192/,296/.295/.591I would be willing to bet that much of his 'power' came against middle relief chumps when it didn't matter. Haven't checked though. If he mans a position (god forbid), 2012 UZR/150 1B -8.5 3B -39.3LF -46.Very positive MO did his homework on Wigginton. Otherwise wouldn't of signed him nor shown any significant interest.---------------------------------------------
