I like this deal better than Stanton. I would have loved to get GS, but getting someone almost as good for much less leaves more room for other impact players. I just hate that the Yanks got him though.

Zac Gallen is probably gonna be really good — and there’s the fact that OF really isn’t the priority for this team. Moreover, I would expect Ozuna’s offensive numbers to drop a bit when he’s not hitting next to Giancarlo Stanton.

But all in all this is the type of move that the Cardinals never make but we need. It will give us a strong bat in the middle of the lineup and maybe free us up to move a couple of the big league OF pieces for a 1B bat and some bullpen depth.

Me too.

Stanton and Judge being on the same team should be illegal.

I'd be more upset if the cubs had wanted & gotten him.

Baseball is a business, but it’s not always cold and unfeeling. On Wednesday, the St. Louis Cardinals traded outfielder Stephen Piscotty to the Oakland Athletics. After the Cards traded for Marcell Ozuna, Piscotty was the odd man out. But the trade was about more than just clearing roster space. It was also about sending Piscotty back home to be near his mother.

We’ve apparently moved on from any deal with Rays.  I hope that isn’t true.

Good luck. They’ve screwed just about everything else up they touch.

Looks like Harrison Bader just made the big squad. I am a little concerned about Pham though, just a gut feeling. Did we put all of our eggs in one basket because he had a breakout year at 30 years of age?

Jose Martinez is a decent fall back in the event of a Pham fall off and sounds like it may be show me time in the show me state for Bader.

The more I see of the 2 that we got from the Grichik trade, I think we did pretty well.
