Nick Punto Watch - Bye Bye Birdie

It is over.  Finally.

Nick Punto, the worst 3rd baseman in Twins' history since Mike Cubbage fiddled with his glove as the pitcher was delivering to home, is gone.  Responsible for $8 million in salary the past two years, Punto's decent defensive play, .200-something batting average, and sliding into first heroics have come to an end in Minnesota.  Nick signed a $750,000 contact to deliver the same kind of goods to the Cardinals. 

Good luck, Redbirds.  You'll need it.  Good luck to Nick as well.  Hopefully he socked away a good portion of that $8 million.  Something tells me he's going to need it pretty quick.
