Cyber Monday Special, Cards Resign LaRue

November 30, 2009 | Clark | Comments 2

The Cardinals have resigned LaRue to a one year deal, but may not be done at the catchers position according to Reid Laymance of STLToday.com.  Speculation in twitterland (from @Pitchershit8th) is that this means catching prospect Bryan Anderson is either gone or being moved from the catching hole.

No word on any additional Holliday shopping, pardon the pun, at the moment.

    I don’t think it necessarily means that Anderson is on the move (outside or inside the org.). I do believe that Anderson needs more seasoning as he missed valuable development time due to a shoulder injury in 2009.

    Unless Anderson improves dramatically on defense, I find it hard to believe the current regime would trust him as an everyday catcher. History suggests that the Cardinals like a defense first catcher in the backup role. If the Cardinals keep him, I believe it would be as trade bait (if his stock could rise again).
