For the first time, the Redbird Rants writers have come together to discuss a very important topic: the trade deadline and how the St. Louis Cardinals should handle it.
The St. Louis Cardinals have hit the All Star break with more questions than answers for fans now. In the first ever Redbird Rants Summit, the writers of Redbird Rants are answering the questions that everyone is wondering about. With the Trade Deadline looming, and the Cardinals showing recent success, there are many questions needing answers.
Heading into the deadline the St. Louis Cardinals find themselves tied for second in the National League Central, five and a half games back of the Milwaukee Brewers for first in the division. Thanks to increased success and a weak division, the Cardinals find themselves in a tough spot. Do they try to compete for the division in a down year or to sell off some assets in trying to speed up the process of a potential rebuild?
Will the team buy or sell? Who should they target? Will we see any current major leaguers moved? The Redbird Rants writers will share their opinions for these and other questions in this first ever Redbird Rants Summit.
