The Cardinals struggled up the middle this season and will look to improve there for 2009. The Tigers let Edgar Renteria walk and the Cardinals may pursue their former shortstop. Renteria hit very well in 2007, and some believe that clubhouse problems in 2008 affected his numbers. He would probably cost the Cardinals 8-9 million dollars, which is very affordable considering they are only targeting one other player (Brian Fuentes) through free agency.
