Right-hander David Aardsma just signed a minor-league deal with the Cardinals, which wouldn’t be particularly newsworthy except for the fact that Aardsma was very outspoken on Twitter back when the Cardinals signed Jhonny Peralta to a four-year, $53 million deal in November.
Here’s an Aardsma tweet from the day Peralta signed, November 23:

I wonder if that topic will come up during clubhouse introductions today?
