Adam Lind – 1B

The Cardinals tried to pry away the first basemen from the NL Central rival at the trade deadline, but were unsuccessful. There are two options here to get Lind. The Brewers could decline to pick up his $8 Million option and let him become a free agent and move in a younger player at his position. The Brewers could also pick up the option and look to trade him during the winter months.

Lind had a really good first season in Milwaukee finishing with .277/.360/.460 with 52 extra-base hits (32 doubles, 20 homers). He also drove in over 80 runs for just the third time in his career. Lind would be a really good player on this team and if Heyward does not sign, I would be mighty fine with the Cardinals kicking the tires on Lind.
