I am aware that the STL cardinals have about 4 extra outfielders all better than Nathan Hayes. Currently they have Brian Barton, Ryan Ludwig, Chris Duncan, Rick Ankiel, Skip Shumaker all fighting for playing time currently. It is so crowded in thier outfield that they sent down Colby Rasmus and a beast in Joe Mather. I saw Joe Mather in Jupiter this spring, WOW...this guy can hit. They are looking for some added depth in the minors that is a little depleted....sounds like a perfect fit for the Rays, we have depth all the way to class A. Just some food for thought. Being a long time Cardinal fan, I have seen these guys play for a while and why all these men have some things that can be improved on; all are better than the options we are currently holding on too. Barton was a rule 5 pick and is currently knocking down Ludwig, Duncan, and Shumaker's playing time. Rasmus will be brought up around the same time as Longoria to add more time to his MLB contract, but what will they do then? Rasmus has the CF position solidified when he gets brought up, moving Ankiel to RF. That leaves 5 people fighting for 1 spot. It's a route I think the organization should consider...I like all of these options better than Hayes! My vote.....Skip Shumaker.
