STLtoday - Kennedy seeks trade for '09

STLtoday - Kennedy seeks trade for '09: "Convinced manager Tony La Russa no longer considers him an everyday player, Cardinals second baseman Adam Kennedy has asked that the club trade him rather than bring him back for the final installment of his three-year, $10 million contract.

'I've never played on a baseball team where I haven't had a role, whether it was everyday or something else. That's the toughest part, not having a role. I realize it's not going to happen here,' Kennedy said before Thursday night's series finale against the Cincinnati Reds."

... Kennedy wants out, respectfully, and he has a point.
