The Cardinals, as you know, lost out on A. J. Burnett when he signed with the Blue Jays.
This is a guy the Cardinals wanted almost as much as the Cubs wanted Rafael Furcal.
The grass isn't always greener on the other side. Patience. The week is not yet over.
UPDATE [2005-12-6 15:14:18 by Al]:
Have heard that there is nothing to the Prior-for-Abreu rumor. The other things reported in today's papers concerning possible deals with Cincinnati, Tampa Bay and Florida are all in play.
