Cards add RHP Mujica at the deadline

On a Tuesday afternoon where it seemed the like the St. Louis Cardinals were going to quietly let the deadline pass them by without doing anything to shore up the team, they didn’t. The Cardinals announced that they acquired RHP Edward Mujica for minor league 3B Zack Cox. My knee-jerk reaction to the trade was “Is that all they could get for Cox?” After all, I saw a Mujica who … Continue reading
