Lohse Lands

News Item: Kyle Lohse signs with Cardinals

Expected to be one of the top free agent pitchers, the ex-Twin and ex-Phillie got to halfway through spring training unsigned.

Some in Philly are upset that the Phils didn't pony up $5 million or so to get Lohse in their rotation, and I'm sure I'll hear the same thing again next time Adam Eaton or Kris Benson or Chad Durbin gets knocked around in a start. But please. Had they actually signed Lohse, these same people four months from now would be wining about how Pat Gillick could be so stupid as to waste $5 million on Kyle Lohse.
