Don't know for sure, but looks like at least Alcantara & an OF:

I like it. Depending on what is in the offer of course. If Alcantara, Grichuk, and lower minors guys, I'm all about it. If Alcantara, Flaherty, and Grichuk, I'm fine with it but not as big of a fan of it.

Sounds like Alcantara for sure. Rest is still unclear.

Sounds like a Piscotty to Oakland deal is being wrapped up too.

Also seeing Twitter talk that the reason the Ozuna package isn't being disclosed is because STL is working on a corresponding trade with Tampa.

If this is true, this is a HUGE steal in my opinion and it almost doesn't matter who the other 3 are if they are lesser prospects than Alcantara.

I say yes, except for that if it turns out to be Hicks, Gomber, and Woodford then no. :lol:

"To get zero—zero!—top-100 prospects for a guy who was worth more offensively than Cody Bellinger, George Springer and Charlie Blackmon last year and is only 27 years old and is a Gold Glove defender is absolutely bonkers."

My guess:

Alcantara
Sierra
Fernandez
Either Gomber or Woodford

Ew, I'd hate to send Sierra to Miami. Tampa, where I can watch and root and cheer for him and maybe see him play in AAA, is preferable.

That wouldn't be my preference but just a guess. I would prefer sending some random no name rookie league OF. :lol:

Alcantara and Sierra are understood to be 2 of the 4.

Saw something that said Zac Gallen and Daniel Castano were the other 2.

That is a great deal IMO.

Cardinals have traded OF Stephen Piscotty to the Oakland A’s for two prospects.

I think they need to get a Priest to do an exorcism of the entire grounds of Busch III right field, immediately. Our last several starting RF'rs have initially had tremendous success then, after some time out there, tragedy. Taveras, Craig, Piscotty. Get a Priest out there.

In exchange for Ozuna, the Cardinals will send outfielder Magneuris Sierra and pitchers Sandy Alcantara, Zac Gallen and Daniel Castano to the Marlins
