I'm sorry he slept with your girlfriend.
He plays on the second pairing. The blues have a limited amount of money to spend on players. They have a greater need for a number 2 LHD, then shattenkirk. If we were a cap team there would be no worries, but we are not. I am sorry for mentioning your favorite player, but it is nothing personal. However the blues will not be successful by allocating at least 27% of thier budget on the right side of the defense while only allocating around 18% for the left side. they also still have a number one center hole and need to resign other RFAs. On this team shatty prices himself out at 4.5 - 5million. Maybe DA will sign him to smaller bridge deal, but who knows. Again since we are a budget team DA will have to make tough decisions.
