Cleaning House

I get a little confused by the short-sighted beliefs of reporters sometimes. Arizona Central reported on the release of L. J. Shelton expressing disbelief at the timing. They pointed out that releasing now puts $3 Million against this year's cap while releasing him in two weeks would have reduced that figure to 7/8 of $1 Million.

News flash for the Republic. That money will clear against the cap some time. It'll either be this year or next, but it will clear. Why put off until next year such a huge hit, and let it impact the team two years in a row?

Way to go Cards!
