With the trade deadline is creeping nearer and nearer, St. Louis Cardinals fans need to stay up to date on the rumors involving their team.
The St. Louis Cardinals are officially two weeks away from the trade deadline. July 31st has been steadily creeping up for a while. Rumors have been tossed around daily, ranging from the realistic to the clearly insane. What the Cardinals will do remains to be seen, but that hasn’t stopped them from being involved in many different rumors.
In this post we will take a look at a few of the rumors that have been floating around and what they could mean for the team. Trade rumors are one of the most exciting parts of baseball this time of the year. Unfortunately, those rumors can anger fans or get their hopes up, without a single bit of validity to them.
The Cardinals are sitting on the outside looking in. They aren’t out of the race in the National League Central, but they also aren’t doing themselves any favors in an attempt to make a playoff run. Could a move or two get this team back on track? Or is this a lost season for the Redbirds? The next two weeks will probably decide that and there will be countless rumors supporting both sides until then.
If you’ve lived under a rock recently, here are a few of our rumor articles to get you caught up on what we think might interest the St. Louis Cardinals as the deadline approaches:
- “A team searching for hitting all year, the St. Louis Cardinals look to two young outfielders in Miami as their next targets. While big names like Josh Donaldson and Giancarlo Stanton are great to talk about, this would be a much better fit for the trajectory of this team.” Christian May-Suzuki
- “It is trade deadline season, and the rumors are swirling. One of which is Giancarlo Stanton and the idea of him being dealt to the St. Louis Cardinals. Worth it, or should the Cardinals go after a big name free agent?” Drew Clark
- “Early this morning, Rotoworld reported the St. Louis Cardinals have interest in the Toronto Blue Jays’ third baseman, Josh Donaldson.” Tito Rivera-Bosques
- “The St. Louis Cardinals find themselves in a tailspin of a season which was surely not what was planned. In the weakened NL-Central, however, the season might not be lost entirely. Now is the time to find suitors for trades if the season is to be salvaged.” Dr. Michael D. Miles
Since the deadline is just around the corner, let’s take a look at some updates on rumors that have been circulating.
