Durham is no longer an All Star, but he's a solid veteran who hit nearly .290 last year, has post season experience (including last season) and is only a few seasons removed from a 26 homers, 93 RBI, .293 average and .898 OPS season.
And the Cardinals literally ran out of second basemen after running Adam Kennedy out of town.
Shouldn't this be a "Two Great Tastes that Go Great Together" Reeses Peanut Butter Cup moment?
There MUST be a competent infielder in the Cardinals farm system that they can groom at AAA while Durham holds the spot steady for a year. Meanwhile the Cardinals make another playoff run.
And we're not talking about a Manny Ramirez contract here. It's between this and playing shuffleboard.
