The Cards ended weeks of speculation today, signing Felipe Lopez to a one-year contract. This move makes LaRussa happy because of Lopez's ability to play multiple positions. I'm sure TLR is already putting together 38 new lineup combinations that he can use now that Lopez is signed.

Personally, I would have liked to have added someone that could play 3B and provide a little more lefthanded power, but I like the Lopez signing. He provides insurance for Ryan's injury and at third base, and he'll also be able to fill in as a backup outfielder. He hit the ball VERY well during his time in St. Louis in 2008, so I look forward to more of the same in 2010.
