A trade proposal for Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich of the Marlins

If the Cards are going to go for it, they need to make some big moves. This certainly qualifies. The deadline just keeps getting closer. The Cardinals are nearing the time where they have to make a decision on what to do with this season. Going into yesterday, Fangraphs’ projections gave the Cardinals 18.1% chance to make it to the NLDS, a little better than a 4 1/2 to 1 shot. That’s not counting the fact that yesterday the Cards, Diamondbacks, and Brewers lost, and the Cubs and Rockies won. That’s probably a net loss for the Cards. Generally, I’ve supported selling over buying....

There have been rumors that the San Francisco Giants could trade for Giancarlo Stanton, but that could be a disaster for the franchise.

MLB trade rumors: Red Sox prioritizing Giants’ Eduardo Nunez

After missing out on Todd Frazier, the Red Sox have now set their sights on a different third baseman. The Red Sox are reported to be “desperately searching” for a third baseman, and it now appears that they have a clear target in mind in Eduardo Nunez of the Giants, according to Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports. Boston was said to being in on Todd Frazier before he was dealt to the Yankees in a big seven-player deal on Tuesday night that included another Red Sox target in reliever David Robertson. Still, third base appears as though it is the primary area of need for the first place...

Where will Zack Cozart play baseball next season?

Where will Zack Cozart play baseball next season?

Most folks are speculating about where he might go at the trade deadline. I’m worried about where he might sign as a free agent. I’m assuming most of y’all are aware of how incredible Zack Cozart has been this season. I’m not really going to linger on that, but I do wanna drop it here: he’s hitting .321/.400/.566, he’s still playing his Gold Glove defense at shortstop, and he started the All Star Game for the National League. This has developed into an interesting situation for both him and the Reds. He’ll be a free agent at the end of the season and he’s pretty much the...

Bullpen Squanders Heroic Effort by Lynn, Pham: A Recap

Cardinals scrape together a lead, then blow it in the 8th and 9th again. Today is the definition of a getaway game, with the Cardinals closing out a 4-game stand in Citi Park, starting at 11:10 AM Central, 12:10 local. The Cardinals, 2 games under .500, are 4.5 games out of first in the NL Central, while the Mets are.... more games under .500. Like, 8. Lance Lynn vs. Seth Lugo. If we win today, It’ll mark a badly needed 3-1 series win against a struggling Mets squad. If we lose, might as well sell after splitting with the Mets - it ain’t getting better ...

Eugenio Suarez homers twice, but Reds fall to Diamondbacks 12-2

A barrage of Jake Lamb dingers was too much to overcome. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Eugenio Suarez had cooled off mightily after his red hot start to the 2017 season. The Cincinnati Reds 3B sported a pristine 1.200 OPS on April 23rd, but watched that slip all the way down to .785 after July 16th’s 0 for 4 outing against the Washington Nationals, a 71 game stretch in which he hit just .221/.331/.348 in 287 PAs. Of course, he’d still managed an impressive walk rate during that span, and entered play on Thursday still sporting a solid .356 OBP for the year. And...
