If the Dodgers don't re-sign Justin Turner, who plays third base?

This does not have to be complicated. The Dodgers want their third baseman of 2017 to be the same man who filled the role in 2016. And Justin Turner, the sole quality third baseman on the free-agent market, wants to return to Los Angeles. But rare is the contract negotiation that unfolds in simple...

Cardinals Hot Stove Rumors: Justin Turner, anyone? - A Hunt and Peck

Reports are swirling that the Cardinals are interested in the third baseman, though we have been beating this drum for awhile now... According to Jon Morosi of mlb.com the Cardinals have interest in free agent third baseman Justin Turner. MLB Trade Rumors has Turner ranked fourth among this year’s free agents, estimating a payout of $85 million over five years. Along with an above average bat that has hit for a career 120 wRC+ (158 and 142 in 2014 and 2015, respectively), Turner would provide a definite upgrade to a Cardinals infield defense that was... ungreat in 2016. Turner also...

Cardinals News and Notes: Lou, Yadi, Kelly, and Turner

Yesterday’s VEB Here’s everything you missed yesterday at VEB: A defense of Cardinals Hall of Famer Lou Brock: Craig takes on those who say Lou Brock shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame.

A mutually beneficial time share for Yadier Molina, Carson Kelly: Joe makes the case that there’s enough playing time for Yadi and Carson Kelly to be on the Opening Day roster in 2017.

The Cardinals should bid big on Justin Turner

Turner is a great fit for this Cardinals team Editor's Note: This post originally appeared in October, but given Jon Morosi's report that the Cardinals are interested in Justin Turner, it probably deserves a fresh look. The hot stove season continues to get closer. Today I want to talk about the free agent I most want to see wearing the birds on the bat next season: Justin Turner. The Cardinals are a team full of quality players, but they possess little high-end talent. You might not think of Turner as a high-end talent. Honestly, it's a new thing to me too. Perhaps the reasons he's flown...

Cardinals news and notes: Marlins, Hwang, and the Fall League

It’s mid-November and Cardinals news is kind of slow. Let’s call it the calm before the storm. Eventually, big names are going to switch teams. Yoenis Cespedes, Dexter Fowler, Edwin Encarnacion, Justin Turner, and many others will eventually switch teams. Until that happens, though, we are left with blind speculation and hopes and dreams. And some posts from VEB over the weekend. Here is them. Miami Marlins Ben Markham looked at the strengths and weaknesses of the Cardinals’ current depth as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the Marlins’ depth chart and considered that the...
