If/When to Trade Polanco?

Posted by Brian Michael, Sun, March 13, 2005 06:33 PM | Comments: 0

We all expected the Cardinals to sign Placido Polanco after he was up for free agency at the end of last season. But when Polanco unexpectedly accepted arbitration, you would think the Red Birds would give up. Today the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Polanco is unhappy with his new role and is looking to resign with his old club in St. Louis:

He said he has asked to be traded, but he was told by the Phillies that they wanted to wait to make any move. Still, Polanco said he doesn’t expect to be with the Phillies all season long. Ideally, he would be dealt to a contender, but he said, “I can’t be too picky now. “I would have never accepted arbitration if I knew I was going to be in this situation.”
