Cards trade Brian Barton for Blaine Boyer

by on April 20, 2009 · 0 comments

The Cardinals have made a move to bolster (???) their bullpen, in the wake of several rough outings for the season.

Brian Barton, a Rule 5 draft selection a year ago, is headed to the Atlanta Braves for right-handed relief pitcher Blaine Boyer.

Boyer hasn’t been a world-beater, but maybe Dave Duncan sees something he can work with?

Perhaps the bigger question?  Who goes down to make room for Boyer (assuming they made this deal to put him on the big league roster)?

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
