Cardinals Make Qualifying Offer To Beltran

If outfielder Carlos Beltran leaves the Cardinals, the team won't go uncompensated. St. Louis has extended a qualifying offer to the right fielder, which is valued at one year for 14.1-million-dollars. The Cardinals will be eligible to receive a compensatory draft pick should he sign elsewhere. Beltran hit .296 with 24 homers and 84 RBI during the regular season. The 36-year-old then homered twice and drove in 15 runs during the Cards' playoff run to the World Series.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
