Shocker: Tony La Russa interested in a lefty reliever

10 Comments

Tony La Russa suggested to MLB.com that the Cardinals may be interested in Arthur Rhodes, who was just DFA’d by the Rangers.  His comment:

“He’s been a hell of a pro for a long, long time,” La Russa said. “He’s got all our respect. Does that sound like intrigued?”

Word on the street is that La Russa’s interest in Rhodes only bloomed when someone told him that Tony Fossas turns 54-years-old next month.  No word, however, on whether La Russa would actually use Rhodes to pitch or if he just wants him around in case he wants to throw the ball at someone’s back.
