St. Louis Cardinals second baseman and outfielder Skip Schumaker has been a fan favorite at Busch Stadium for several years.
Cardinals fans have historically adored spunky players who play the game of baseball with determination and grit. Schumaker fits that profile perfectly.
Unfortunately for Schumaker, the rest of his skills are not aligned with what the Cardinals are looking for in 2013 and beyond.
Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told B.J. Rains of FoxSportsMidwest.com on Monday that the Cardinals would be interested in moving Schumaker if a suitor presented itself. Rains also reported that Schumaker would be open to a trade for a chance at a better opportunity.
In my opinion, Mozeliak should jump at this window of opportunity quickly and move Schumaker to the first team that shows the slightest amount of interest.
Schumaker has given the Cardinals several decent seasons, but unfortunately the Cardinals just do not have any use for him any longer.
