The Cardinals roll to another win against the Brewers. Pineiro was super, allowing 2 solo HRs in 7 innings. Ricky had another hit and 2 more Ks. MV3 went 8-14 with 4 RBIs, while each homered. The Cardinals are now 3.5 games out.
So the Cardinals did not sign Kyle Russell. I wonder how Lunhow feels that his pick, Russell, did not get signed by his rumored rival, Jocketty. Russell’s teammate, Brad Suttle, was also a fourth round pick and got 1.3 million from the Yankees. Suttle, too, is represented by the Hendricks. His bonus is a record for a fourth round pick. Russell is considered to have a higher upside but Suttle is supposed to be a safer bet to hit at the higher levels. So, I would guess that Russell was asking for this much or more and the Cardinals were not willing to set the $$ record for a fourth round pick. Do you want to give a record bonus to a guy who has tremendous power, but strikes out quite a bit and has struggled with wood bats?
