The Cardinals sign Miguel Batista and Ian Snell

I hope Cardinals fans didn’t have water in their mouths when they read the following tweet from Derrick Goold, or else they’d need new monitors:

Cardinals sign Miguel Batista and Ian Snell

I mean, jeez, Derrick. I know some people advocate pulling the bandage off quickly, but you really should break that kind of thing up into two tweets rather than smack everyone over the head like that.

Oh well, no sense going crazy.  These are minor league deals for basically zero money.  And while he absolutely grinds my gears to watch pitch, Batista has his uses as a swingman/slop-time kind of pitcher. Snell less so, but maybe some Dave Duncan time will do him some good.  That is, if he gets enough time near the major league camp to talk to Duncan much.
