Sanders out 4-6 weeks

Speaking of the Cardinals,  the news came out that Reggie Sanders will be out 4-6 weeks because of a hairline fracture in his right leg as a result of a collision Friday night with Jim Edmonds.

Taking off my Cub hat for just a sec (anything bad for the Cards is good for the Cubs, right? ;-)), I can’t help but feel sympathetic for Sanders.  For years, he’s been a rent-a-player (seven teams in seven years).  Finally, he got a chance to stay with the same team in consecutive years and he rewards them with a fantastic effort.  Up until this point, he’s hit .281 with 18 homers and 44 rbis.

Tough break. 

Word has it, a John Rodriguez will be called up to take Sanders’ spot.  His minor league stats this year are 22 HR, .286, .349, .589. 

His nickname?

J-rod, of course
