Cardinals claim Adalberto Mejia off waivers from the Angels

96 posts in this topic

so that means they have ten days to trade him or release him, right?

it sucks that he got caught in a numbers game. I hope they can manage to keep him.

is it possible we can keep him or will a team pick him?

Has to pass through waivers after DFA time runs (10 days I think)...

Seems like every year we get a guy who previously sucked, he pitches good for us for a few games, and then gets DFA. I'm guessing we're not the only team that does it.

Does Thais really need to be on the mlb roster?  

Tropeano needed a spot on the 40 man roster. So you would have preferred they DFA Thaiss?

Mejia was the anticipated move. We may even get him back if he clears waivers.

This shuttle between SLC and Anaheim has been grossly mismanaged. Peters throws 5 shutout innings and gets sent down. The same thing has happened to Barria and Suarez. How can you build a rotation when you never have five starters on the staff at any one time. Now they are stuck with Tropeano to start a game against a hot offensive team. He will most likely get shelled then get sent down to get shelled in SLC. Losing Skaggs was a huge a huge loss, Heaney being injured is not a surprise! Removing starters after five innings even if they are throwing well puts the strain on the pen. This is on Eppler and Ausmus for not having pitching depth and for the shuttle back and forth to SLC.

First wasn't Tropeano on the 40 man roster?  He was according to baseballreference.com  He started a game earlier in the year.

If not you can DFA Bour! Dont we have enough 1b/DH types?

Move La Stella to the 60 day IL!

Who the hell is Adam McCreery?

Who the hell is Anthony Beboom?

Some people must think Mejia is a valuable asset.

This is no big deal. Don't overreact.

Eppler gets paid for this shit. He knows.

Is Trop really any different than Barria or Suarez or Canning or Pena?  They are all just warm bodies that have good and bad games.

Tropeano was on the 40. Mejia was out of options. No one else to send down off the 25.

Read on another thread he needed to be added.

They could have put Mejia on the 10 day IL, right?

Yea we have glut of quality pitching!

Don't get me wrong I don't expect much from Mejia but he has done well for us and we need pitching.  But our, Mc Creery  and Binboom will mean zo much more for us.
