It’s fitting: on a day in which Dan Haren leads the National League in ERA, the Cardinals have traded Anthony Reyes. The haul is a minor league righty reliever, old for his levels, who will have to get in line behind Mark Worrell, Jason Motte, and, if La Russa gets his way, Kelvin Jimenez, but it’s really irrelevant: the story here is that the Cardinals have, for two years, suppressed Reyes’s value as far as they possibly could, and this is the long-awaited end result. Underwhelming, to say the least, and a disappointing move from a guy who’s supposed to understand that minor league relievers aren’t hard to find.
