    Cardinals sign catcher Kottaras

    As they began to trudge forward without the injured Yadier Molina the Cardinals made a move for reinforcement by claiming backup catcher George Kottaras on waivers.

    Kottaras has been designated for assignment by the Cleveland Indians earlier in the week. He'll meet the Cardinals in Milwaukee and will be activated in time for Saturday's afternoon game.

    This isn't the kind of move that will get anyone chirping, but Kottaras is a good fit for the Cardinals' situation. It's a common-sense signing.

    yay i guess. Guy has some pop (for a borderline backup/starting catcher).

    Still holding out for Suzuki but im doubtful it happens

    He's definitely not a machoke, maybe in line with machop. Probably more in line with mankey, but we'll take him. He'll bridge the gap until we can get our machamp back

    I was actually pretty interested in this signing. I liked it a lot more than say a Buck or Pierzynski.

    He actually has some interesting offensive ability

    He's definitely not a horrible option. I don't love it but definitely isn't a bad signing, we definitely needed the depth at Catcher for sure. Suzuki would be sweet to get.

    If they're going to go to a platoon between Cruz and him I think he's a great get

    If they want to have 1 full time catcher a better option needs to be had
