I'm very interested to see how Seth Maness performs and more importantly, I'm interested to see how that elbow holds up. This could be a real game changer.

With baseball watching, Maness set to return to majors http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball ... abfbd.html

He's thrown 6 innings in Omaha, 1.50 ERA. I wish the Cardinals had held onto him over the winter. Maybe with a 1 year + 1 option year deal to avoid arbitration that would have given the team some savings in the second year if he panned out, but they let him go. Imagine a strong Rosenthal and Oh with both Bowman and Maness able to play the fire man. Ugh, now I'm sad.

Doubt this has happened much in his career - Matt Holliday wears a Golden Sombrero today. 0-fer-4 with 4 Ks.

Pujols gets 600 with a grand slam.

Next up: 3,000 hits. 124 hits to go. Probably next April.

Adams hit two more home runs last night. Now batting .270/.323/.607 with 8 HR and 19 RBI in 22 games for Atlanta. He has a 137 OPS+, which is park and league adjusted. Tommy Pham leads the Cardinals with a 139 OPS+.

On the season he is batting .277/.329/.533 with 9 HR in 149 PA. On pace for 36 HR over a 600 PA season at his current rate.

Rays announce Colby Rasmus has stepped away from baseball and is not expected to return this year.

His brother Casey, who used to be a catcher in the Cardinals' system, retired somewhat abruptly a couple years ago.

I was doing some reading and it sounds like he just prefers to be with his family. Said that he'd already stated he may not play into his mid thirties. Hopefully that's all it is and nothing serious is going on.

The Rockies acquired Pat Neshek, 37, from the Phillies on Wednesday night for three prospects currently at Class A.

Neshek is 3-2 with a 1.12 ERA in 43 games & is averaging 10 strikeouts per nine innings and just 1.1 walks per nine.

The Rockies also received cash considerations in the trade, which came toward the end of Wednesday's 10-5 loss to the Cardinals.

Neshek is signed thru this season @ $6.5M.
