Cardinals outfielder Colby Rasmus had choice words for the Cardinals over the season, and even though GM John Mozeliak said he won't trade the prospect, several teams are already eyeing the outfielder.
Rasmus improved over 20 points on his average from 2009, posting a .276 average with a career high 23 home runs and a .361 on-base percentage. One NL source expects Rasmus to be made available, but that the Cardinals asking price will be so high a deal is unlikely.
Rasmus is a very interesting case. He is only 24 years old and in his second year in the majors, but has a great minor league track record and two solid seasons where he has shown improvement to suggest he will be an impact player in the future.
Expect the Cardinals to resolve the so-called "Rasmus-Cardinals feud."
