Sweet Jesus No: The Cardinals Have Acquired Ryan Theriot

MLB News and Rumors

Ready your voodoo magic repellent.

Today the St. Louis Cardinals traded reliever Blake Hawksworth to the Dodgers for Ryan Theriot, whom they view as a possible starter at shortstop or second base. And on the Cardinals, he just might become that.


The move is a big win for the Dodgers, who were widely expected to non-tender Theriot this week. If there is any consolation here, it is the fact that the Cardinals will now tender Theriot a contract in the range of $3 million. Er, except he’ll play like Hanley Ramirez on steroids, so even the steep price won’t hurt the Cards.
