HawgWild Cardinals Rumors – November 16

Don't shoot down rumors of Mark Buehrle coming to St. Louis. The White Sox are shopping a few of their starters, and Walt could make another Mark Mulder type deal here. Chris Duncan has been drawing major trade interest from other teams the Cardinals have been talking with. Buehrle should be pretty easy to sign to an extention here in St. Louis.

As reported by Bernie Miklasz, the Cardinals have interest in Kip Wells. Wells, who is also interested in the Cardinals, would be a nice Duncan project for the back of the rotation. He would be worth pursuing if he isn't looking for #2 starter money.

Jeff Weaver could sign a deal as early as next week. He wants to come back to St. Louis, and talks between his agent and the Cards have heated up.

The Cardinals are interested in Octavio Dotel.

Adam Kennedy is a possible solution at 2B. Mark Loretta is most likely going to cost too much.

Adam Wainwright is going to stay in the closer's role, unless he is needed in the starting rotation.
