Just posted in another thread, I don't get this deal from the Cards' perspective. Nice job for the Padres in getting a bat.

I don't either.:scratch:

Jake gets another $2 million for getting traded and STL's lineup gets weaker for a guy who is barely a fifth starter.

Ludwick in SD is 50/50, but any help for their lineup should be welcome.

Westbrook is far better than Suppan or Hawksworth. And they know they're picking up a lot defensively with Jon Jay and probably not losing much offensively.

I like this deal for the Padres.
