Where did you hear that Marlon Anderson is out of the running? Last I heard the job was his and if by chance they platooned, Marlon would play most of the time because he bats left and Hart bats right.

Marlon Anderson - Second Baseman - Cardinals Mar. 26 - 3:19 pm et


A source told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the Cardinals have placed Marlon Anderson and Chris Widger on waivers.
It looks like Cody McKay could beat out Widger to become Mike Matheny's backup. If Anderson is out of a job, the Cardinals could keep Hector Luna on the roster, at least until Tony Womack is ready to play.

Hope that helps... ;-D

Damn, they put him on waivers :-?

Well I have him on my team in a deep league so maybe a good team will pick him up. Maybe the Yankees :-D

Either way I won't lose much if he ends up being a backup somewhere.

Womack. :-? I don't know if he's going to bat lead off, but you never know with the Cards. This is the team that had Vina leading off for them.

LaRussa's an idiot. I watched the Cards' game the other day and Anderson looked great -- working hard to win a spot. Lankford is the one they should cut. He'll be a washout by the end of the year. Womack? What a joke. Cardinals will be a distant third in the Central this year.

from the post dispatch

A source confirmed Thursday the Cardinals have asked waivers on Widger, often a precursor to a trade or a release. Second baseman Marlon Anderson, whose status became complicated after last weekend's trade for infielder Tony Womack, has also appeared on the waiver wire, according to the source. The Cardinals are seeking a trade for Anderson, also signed as a free agent last winter.


cutting marlon would be a mistake in my opinion but if they can trade him i am all for it. right now its looking like womack will play 2b but that can change. the cards might trade for a 2b or they might be able to claim someone off of waivers when teams make their final cuts.

also, tony has indicated he would rather have someone with a good on base percentage at leadoff than someone who can still bases but cant get on base. that means lankford is a dark horse candidate for the leadoff spot since he usually has a solid obp.
