Report: Cards won't pick up option on Mulder

Report: Cards won't pick up option on Mulder: "The St. Louis Cardinals have reportedly declined to exercise the 2009 option on left-hander Mark Mulder's contract, ending the oft-injured hurler's tenure with the club.

The club had until November 15 to notify Mulder of its intention on the $11 million option, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch cited Mulder's agent as saying he received notice that the Cardinals will pay the $1.5 million buyout."
