Cardinals acquire lefty to aid bullpen - Sports - Belleville News Democrat: "Looking to fortify their left-handed relief, the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday claimed left-handed reliever Charlie Manning off outright waivers from the Washington Nationals and added him to their 40-man roster.
To make room for Manning, the Cardinals designated first baseman Josh Phelps for assignment."

...Sort of makes one wonder if this is supposed to be the big impact player. The Cards did well with getting Lopez off the Nats, so this could be a good deal for Manning and the Cards. Looks for plenty of comment from all the "experts" on this one.
