Former Cardinals prospect Brett Wallace -- you remember... the guy Cardinals fans freaked out about losing when he was traded for Matt Holliday -- was demoted to the minor leagues today by Houston.
The lefthanded hitting first baseman with the glove of iron was batting .268 for the Astros but has only managed four homers in the hitter friendly confines of the Astros home field.
It's another detour in the path to becoming the next Babe Ruth for Wallace who was traded by the Cardinals to Oakland then by Oakland to Toronto before the Blue Jays spun him off the Astros causing stat rats across Cardinals nation to pass out in horror.
In 152 major league games Wallace is a .254 hitter with a whopping six homers and 39 RBIs. He's walked 43 times and struck out 134 times.
