Westbrook was a mediocre pitcher at his apex. Now he's just an old pitcher that used to be mediocre.
He is still completely mediocre at best which is not a total loss as the 5th starter. The trade was confusing as hell at the time but not nearly as bad as the money thrown at Westbrook for the extension. Really hope that it doesn't cause the Cards to sign more interesting guys like Oswalt.
