Cardinals Remain Quiet At Winter Meetings

The Cardinals continue to be quiet at baseball's Winter Meetings in Florida. The Redbirds have not been involved in any signings or trades thus far at the annual Hot Stove gathering. The Cards are still seeking a right-hand hitting infielder. The meetings run through Thursday.

The Cardinals' Allen Craig and Yadier Molina are recipients of GIBBY Awards. Craig's infamous obstruction call that ended Game Three of the World Series received a Greatness in Baseball Yearly honor for top postseason moment. Molina won again as the game's top defender.

The Cardinals acquisition of the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds is being put on hold. Memphis City Council voted to delay the matter. The "Memphis Business Journal" reports the purchase price of AutoZone Park will drop from 20-million-dollars down to 15-million, with stadium improvements being caped at 2.5-million.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
