Feliz traded

The experiment that was Pedro Feliz is now over as the Astros have traded him - not Blum - to St. Louis for RHP David Carpenter.

Carpenter is a 25-year old reliever, drafted in the 12th Round by the Cardinals in 2006. He's 5-3 in High-A Palm Beach of the Florida State League, where has posted a 2.36 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP in 49 games.

You're probably thinking that this isn't much of a return, but if Pedro Feliz is the missing piece as the Cardinals try to catch the Reds, then the Cardinals are playing with the wrong puzzle.

Feliz traded. Clemens to be indicted. It's almost like Christmas morning.

So what do we think of Ed Wade now. Cards call about Blum and he ends up selling them Feliz instead.
