Cardinals Release Maroth

The St. Louis Cardinals have cut ties with ex-Tiger's pitcher Mike Maroth today, after the lefty went 0-5 with a 10.66 ERA in 7 starts and 7 relief apperances. This makes the pitcher's market slightly better, as there will be a handful of teams interested in Mike to be their 5th starter. Don't forget he was 5-2 with a 4.19 ERA in 53.2 innings for the Tigers in '06 and was a consistant 200+ innings-pitcher through '04-'05.

Maroth still had one year of arbitration left on his deal, making $2.95M this season. I can easily see a 3-year $15M deal handed out somewhere in need of some pitching, Tampa Bay maybe?
