Cardinals release Taguchi

Postby Ruutu15 » Fri Dec 07, 2007 12:00 pm

I always really liked Taguchi...one of, if not my favorite Redbirds. Definitely rocking my Taguchi jersey anyway next season.

Report: Cards release Taguchi to open spot for Rule 5 draft pick
Source

Outfielder So Taguchi has been released by the St. Louis Cardinals after six seasons with the team, according to MLB.com.

By cutting the 38-year-old Taguchi, the Cardinals made room on their 40-man roster to allow them to make a selection in Thursday's Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings in Nashville.

Taguchi, who signed with the Cards before the 2002 season after a successful career in Japan, established himself as a valuable member of the club in 2004 when he appeared in 109 games.

In parts of six seasons with the Cardinals, Taguchi batted .283 with a .336 on-base percentage and became a fan favorite for his hustling style and performance in the 2006 postseason.

Taguchi, not noted for power hitting, struck a tie-breaking home run in Game 2 of the 2006 National League Championship Series -- a solo shot off Billy Wagner in the ninth inning that began a three-run rally in the Cardinals' 9-6 win.

St. Louis went on to win the NLCS in seven games and beat the Detroit Tigers in the World Series.

Oh noes.

I'm confused.

I just laughed out loud after reading this thread.

But someone said all the people that make this place cool were gone.

WTF?

We need just one thread where everyone can have pissing contests on old board vs new board. Seeing every other (Frank) thread get jacked is getting old.

No, I don't really care about the arguments. I'm just saying...does it need to be in seemingly every thread? I like everyone here, I'm not pointing fingers at anyone. Chill, holmes.
