Looks like Stanton is going to the Yankees. Much better option that the Dodgers IMO.

Bronx Bombers loading up again. Agree, at least the Dodgers didn't get him nor the Cubs although deal not finalized as yet.

Fine with them going after Ozuna, but not a fan of seeing a report saying they "badly desire" anyone because it seems like they are desperate and will get bent over on the trade.

This. Especially for a guy who is coming off a breakout power season, but was fairly unremarkable prior.

Apparently the Cards are also in on Jose Abreu.

That makes a lot of sense to me. Can move Carpenter around the infield based on matchups. Give someone from your deep OF another chance. And if the 3rd OF spot still sucks, it should be easier to upgrade in season than other positions.

Updates like crazy today.

At one point this offseason, there was “momentum” toward a deal between Reed and the Cardinals, a source told Goold, but it seems this winter’s slow-to-develop relief market has helped prevent an agreement from coming to fruition. Whether he signs with the Cardinals or another team, the soon-to-be 29-year-old Reed is in position to end up as one of this winter’s richest relievers.

Hopefully we'll get something positive done this week. At least lay the groundwork for something concrete.

Cubs sign Brandon Morrow to help bullpen. Jeff Passan reported the Cubs and Morrow have a two-year deal in place.

It sounds like Cards were headed to signing Addison Reed, but those talks have stalled, perhaps because everyone was waiting on Stanton or he wants to see where and what Davis and Holland get before signing.

Plenty of rumors today linking the Cards to Manny Machado and the Orioles being much more open to the idea of moving him. :o

What I'm reading says he wants to move back to shortstop.

I guess we move DeJong to 3B, platoon Gyorko & Carp is back at 1B?


One must continue to wonder if Wong will ever own 2B for us.

Don't know how interested I am in a potential 1 year rental. Just think our resources can be better used elsewhere unless Manny or Donaldson are willing to sign on for a short while. Not sure that is the desire of either of these guys.

I'd be more interested in doing a deal with Tampa Bay for Colome, Archer and Longoria. Then sign an Ozuna type bat and call it a successful day! Would need to move Grichuk and Piscotty as well. Ahh....living the dream.... 8-)

Sounds like the Cardinals trading for Ozuna is likely to happen. Joe Frisaro, Miami's MLB.com reporter, is reporting that the Cardinals are the front runner. Mo and Girsch both said tonight that they are optimistic on the acquisition of a bat soon, which, for that pair, probably means they're just waiting for everyone to be notified. Frisaro is reporting that the offer is currently looking like Ozuna for two of Flaherty/Hudson/Alcantara as well as one of Piscotty/Grichuk.

Wow, that's a steep price. Mo would have ever considered a trade like that a year or two ago. They're clearly feeling the heat though and with 6-8 teams in the picture and , I guess that's what you have to do to get across the finish line first.

Losing two of those three, plus the extra OF'er definitely takes the Cards out of contention for a mega deal involving Archer/Longoria/Colome and likely for Abreu too. Personally, i'd stay in the Machado race. St. Louis was prepared to eat $300M of Stanton's contract. It stands to reason that they would be willing to push north of even that to keep Manny long-term.

It seems dumb that this could be a thing, but Alex Colome just followed the Cardinals account. Hopefully it’s he’s not just pulling a Rajai Davis.
