The Cardinals solidified their starting rotation by signing Jeff Suppan. He was 13-11 with a 4.19 ERA with the Pirates and Red Sox last season. He spent the previous four seasons with the Royals. He got a two-year deal worth $6-million. They’re probably done shopping for starting pitchers, after trading for J.D. Drew and Eli Marrero to the Braves for Jason Marquis (and reliever Ray King) and signing Suppan. The other three starters will be Matt Morris, Woody Williams and Chris Carpenter, who missed all of last season. The Cardinals have reportedly reached a two-year agreement with right fielder Reggie Sanders, but he still has to pass a physical. If Sanders signs with St. Louis it will carry an ironic twist—Sanders was responsible for the game-winning hit against the Cardinals in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series.
