Outfielder finds situation different in Toronto than St. Louis
Mike Claiborne and Dan McLaughlin lead the charge on the Sports Hub after the Cardinals’ loss to the Astros. We may have lost, but the talk of the town is the trade of Colby Rasmus.
The Cardinals have traded center fielder Colby Rasmus, as well as relievers Trever Miller, P.J. Walters, Brian Tallet to the Toronto Blue Jays for three pitchers and an outfielder.
The early returns on the trade have not been favorable. Many think the Cardinals did not get enough. Really?
Yadier Molina was a triple shy of the cycle for the second time in three games and Kyle McClellan ended an eight-game victory drought.
Outfielder Colby Rasmus is at the center of it all.
