Cardinals Not Likely To Make More Trades

A playoff run appears unlikely for the Cardinals, who trail the Brewers by ten games in the NL Central. Though the Cards haven’t ruled out a late run, they’re also looking ahead to 2012. Cardinals GM John Mozeliak acknowledged to Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he would listen to trade offers for his players, but said he doesn’t expect to make more moves. 

“I don't look at doing any additions unless it really makes sense or has impact for future years," Mozeliak said.

Draft pick compensation will also be a factor as St. Louis considers trades, Mozeliak said. He added that the Cardinals would like to see Tyler Greene get more of an opportunity so that they can see whether his minor league success can translate into big league results. The 2005 first rounder has a .336/.424/.623 line with 14 homers and 16 stolen bases in 258 Triple-A plate appearances this year, but he has never hit much in three Major League stints.

    Who do you guys think will get Albert Pujols?

        The Yankees may be the least likely team that he would play for. They already have a Gold Glove slugger at first, and neither of them would want to DH anytime soon.

      He will re-sign with the Cardinals.

    Seasons like this makes me not want to be a cardinals fan anymore 

    • You sound like a cubs fan.

      • Isaac 4 years ago

        Haha wow that’s just low

      • ubercubsfan 4 years ago

        No, to sound like a Cubs fan, he would need to have blind optimism in a team that, if all things go right, would hit the .500 mark and think that is contention for the central division.

    No more trades Mo? As a Reds fan, I enjoy it when you sell off young talent for marginal improvement two months at a time.

    • junior1 4 years ago

      Well then you’ll enjoy it when Walt starts doing that to your team….

      Im afraid the reds made the playoffs last year because the team just had a good year… there not any good and wont make a run again for a while.  

      • Kendall Adkins 4 years ago

        And the Cards had just as many playoff wins as the Reds last year. 

    • Rashad Bruce 4 years ago

      and screw you dude.. you guys had one lucky year and ur talking smack all ready?? wow reds fans the reds arent as good as u think they are… and this is coming from a team who was supoose to win this year.. get out of here dude..

    Green definitely needs more playing time, especially at shortstop. The errors in Memphis are a little unexpected but the Cardinals need to find out what he can do for them or someone else.

      We’ve already seen what Greene can do the last couple of years…or should I say what Greene can’t do…let’s give him some PT the rest of this season so they finalize realize it’s time to ship him out

    What?!? So, we aren’t going to trade anymore young players with potential for old rentals?…I’ll believe it when I see it.

    I don’t see LaRussa giving extra reps to the young players. Even being 10 games back he’ll still run out his old crusty veterans.

    All you had to do MO was trade for Bell. Then we would have some many blown games. 20  opposing walk off wins? Thats embarrassing.  

    • junior1 4 years ago

      I don’t blame Mo for not doing that.  From the sounds of it the Padres were wanting a ton.  I wouldn’t have given up Shelby Miller plus for him.

      • The_BiRDS 4 years ago

        Rasmus for Bell and Adams would have been much better

        • junior1 4 years ago

          Seeing as the Padres got 2 of the Rangers top young prospects for Adams alone there’s no way the Padres would have done Rasmus for both of them.  You are kidding yourself if you think Rasmus had that much value.

    • isn’t is 12?

  8. Rashad Bruce 4 years ago

    i still think were better than the brewers,,  i mean check this out… the brewers traded ALL OF THERE PROSPECTS WHILE WE STILL HAVE TON OF LEGIT PROPECTS.. they wont have enoough to resign him.. and if they do what do they do about greinke in 2013??? were built for the future… we got legit prospects.. id rather trade colby rasmus who didnt want to be in stl then any of our legit young players like miller cox or martinez..  and with carpenter getting old and loshe on his final year of his contract(thank god) were still legit.. brewers are built to win for this year.. not for the next five… yeah we need a legit closer but we will get one 

  9. Rashad Bruce 4 years ago

    ok i understand that for the bast two years were not good in the second half but it all goes back to that closer position.. were still a better team then the brewers.. just like the reds last year they got lucky… and playing all the punk teams as well..
