I saw this a mile away, the Cardinals don't need a headache like this especially when it's a player like Spiezio. If it was Carpenter or Pujols then he wouldn't of been released but because it's a role player, which are a dime of dozen he gets cut.
I think they made the right decision when letting him go. I really liked him when he was here, good hitter, consistent defense and could pitch like no ones business. So it sucks to see him go. I hope he gets his life back on track.
