DateQuestionAnswer
2016-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the injury to Jhonny Peralta, what options do the Cardinals have? What do you think of the in-house options, Greg Garcia and Aledmys Diaz? Any SS available out there for trade?
(Zonk from Chi-Town)
Synergy! The best option might be the one floated by Dave Cameron at FanGraphs already: Erick Aybar. With Ozzie Albies already the talk of Braves camp, I could certainly see the Braves making this move, and Aybar feels like a very Cardinals ballplayer. I am not all in on Garcia or Diaz, and Gyorko at shortstop is cringe-inducing. They should make a move. They're not very exciting options, but I think the Cards could give the Mets a call about one of Wilmer Flores, Matt Reynolds, or Dilson Herrera. Or maybe Arizona for Chris Owings or Nick Ahmed. (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)It seems like the Cardinals have had a terrible last few months; lose to the Cubs, top prospect suspended 80 games, Molina and Peralta go down with major thumb injuries, and the only free agent that took their money was Mike Leake, while Lackey and Heyward go to the Cubs. Am I right that this is not going well for the Redbirds?
(Nude Pablo Sandoval from Boston)
That's a bad username. I'm tempted to not answer your question, but it is an easy one. Yeah, things are looking dark in St. Louis. That means that Adam Wainwright will win 22 games and Greg Garcia will turn into Brandon Crawford. (Bryan Grosnick)
2013-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Cardinals are about to sign Kelly Shoppach FYI. The cardinals were supposedly looking for SS but had no luck. Pete Kozma, Ryan Jackson, nor Greg Garcia are the answers so who is?
(Bubba from STL)
I thought Alexei Ramirez made sense for them before the rumors of their interest popped up. It's really hard to find a MLB-quality shortstop out there (which is something that we perhaps don't take into account enough when talking about the Iglesias and Gregorius deals). Maybe they reunite with Brendan Ryan, or Arizona decides to move Cliff Pennington for some reason? I don't know. St. Louis may not have a choice but to roll with what they've got. (R.J. Anderson Trade Deadline Wrap Chat)
