I feel bad for Mulder. He just left the Cardinals game in the first inning after facing three batters. I don't want to speculate on what it is, but Mulder has been fighting to come back from tons of shoulder issues for a while now. He had a long road back and this was his first start in almost a year.
I always loved Mulder when he was an Athletic. I'm sorry to see that happen, but best of luck to him.
This could definitely make the Cardinals buyers around the deadline and the A's have a Blanton to deal. He's a guy that never gets injured and I think Blanton would have a lot more success in the National League. We shall see.
