Reports are that the Cards have signed RP Luke Gregerson, late of the Astros, for 2 years with an option for a 3rd year.

They won't announce it though officially until he passes a physical in the Loo on Tuesday.

I don't mind this unless they try to go cheap and close with him. That won't work out well. They never should have let this guy go for Khalil Greene, but somebody had a brain fart. His best years were spent on other teams.

Just more of the same B.S. Mo has no clue how to staff a roster and he is still in the way. Until he is gone, the agony will continue. JMO

I agree, but his lackey Matheny needs to go with him before the Cards get serious about winning again. Mo is a poser and a know nothing bum who likely never got dirty enough to play ball even as a kid.

Cardinals' Voit Working Toward Adding Outfielder to his Resume

(Derrick Goold, Benjamin Hochman, and Ben Frederickson]

http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/cardinal-beat/mo-says-luke-gregerson-is-cards-closer-going-into-the/article_b0d2266a-5ce5-5ffd-ada7-e6c9a397dc7c.html




Gregerson is Cardinals' Closer ........ For Now

Saturday morning at Winter Warm-Up, John Mozeliak said that Luke Gregerson will be the Cardinals' closer going into the season ..... he has experience doing it. The former Houston Astro returns to the Cardinals' organization with 66 career saves, including 31 for the 2015 Astros club that made the postseason.

The 33-year-old right-hander had a 4.57 ERA last season, while giving up 13 homers in 61 innings. But in his eight previous seasons, the highest ERA he ever posted was 3.28. And for his career, Gregerson has a 9.1 strikeout-per-nine-inning rate.

I do think, when you look at our bullpen, there are going to be opportunities for other people to take on more responsibilities or roles, Mozeliak said. There's no doubt that last year was a disappointment when you think of the blown saves and the close games we lost, but we also feel like this year we have a group of guys ready to take that next step up.

Asked if the role of closer is changing, meaning that the Cardinals could have multiple guys closing games during the year, Mozeliak said: We've tried to build flexibility into our bullpen, first and foremost. I do think that the Memphis to St. Louis corridor might be more active than we've seen in the past. But having said that, I do think that managers, in general, like to have someone they can count on in the ninth ..... (We have) younger, dynamic arms to take that role as well if we feel we can manage it properly, in terms of usage.

A key dynamic arm, of course, is Alex Reyes, the young-stud pitcher returning from Tommy John surgery. Mo said that it's possible that Reyes will return around May 1st. Mozeliak also anticipates left-hander Tyler Lyons having an imperative role in the bullpen. And two young power arms, Ryan Helsley and Jordan Hicks, could very well make contributions in 2018.

This is disappointing. Mo had said right after the season ended that there were going to be big changes this off season. I was foolish enough to believe MO. Sadly Mo thinks adding Gregerson was adding a closer. I'm happy with Ozuna, but there needs to be more done if the Cardinals are going to be playing in October.

The bullpen is only good enough if two or three of the top prospects go to the pen this year and break out into stars.

If they do that Matheny will ruin them, they will never be starters. He will Rosenthal them.

I can only hope for MO to have a serious accident. DeWitt promoted him the last time he did so little to improve a team heading in the wrong direction. When was that? Oh yeah, last year. I guess they are wanting to know for sure how poor a team they can really field before profits take a hit.

They've lost their mind if they think fans are going to see a consistently third place team.

You rolls the bones, you takes your chances. Other than Addison, I wouldn't have shelled out the zort to sign a reliever available long term. We all know BP arms are about as consistent as me hitting the bowl at 2 a.m.

TMI ? Deal with it. ;)
