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.

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.
