The St. Louis Cardinals are hopefully gearing up to be active at the trade deadline. We thought, as a site, we should put some of our thoughts out there.

Rumors are already starting to fly round, and that is always a fun part of the year. Our great writers here at Redbird Rants do a great job of covering St. Louis Cardinals rumors, giving some in depth evaluations. So, why not bring all those minds to one place?

The Cardinals are in need of something. Some might say it is a new manager. But, let’s pretend something on the field is more important. This is a critical time in the organization, a wrong move could banish the team into a long rebuild. The right one could help right the ship and bring back postseason baseball for St. Louis.

What Is The Roundtable?

This is not as in depth as some of our other rumor pieces. Due to length issues, this is just the writing staff getting thoughts together. Each writer is allotted a paragraph for their answer to the question.

We’ve done this before at Redbird Rants, but this is the start of a weekly installment. Every Saturday at eight in the morning, there will be a new roundtable, about a new topic.

What’s In This One?

The simple trade talks. Potential targets, trade chips, and long shot hopes. Whether the answers are obvious or not, they are certainly worth talking about. After all, the deadline will be here before we know it. There very well could be a lucky new player sporting St. Louis Cardinals red soon.

This one is broken down into four questions. A bat to target, an arm to target, most valuable trade chip, and ideal player to be traded. The last question is more of a pipe dream in a perfect world situation.

So, without further adieu, enjoy!
