Cards GM not rushing into talk of relief help
SAN DIEGO -- After Ryan Franklin lost the closer's job, relievers such as Fernando Salas and Eduardo Sanchez firmed up the bullpen. But does Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak expect that he'll search for a veteran reliever this summer?

"There may be something we need to address as we get into June or July," Mozeliak said, "but to sit here today and say I know exactly what that is, no.

"As you look at some of the frustrations we've had, part of it's been health, part of it's been things in the bullpen -- yeah, if we could find something that would make sense. But I don't know if it's right-handed or left-handed right now. And I don't know if there might be a greater need down the road.

"The good thing for us right now is we're competing, we're doing it in a lot of different ways, and as long as we can stay in contention and be in a place where we can compete, the St. Louis Cardinals always look for ways to improve themselves at the Trade Deadline."
