St. Louis Cardinals: NLCS player targets for the Cardinals
In part two of a look at potential players for the St. Louis Cardinals to target who are in the playoffs, we turn our attention to the teams in the NLCS.
The St. Louis Cardinals should aim for greatness via acquisition this offseason. While it might be difficult to get these players who are currently playing in the NLCS, this shouldn’t keep the Cardinals from trying.
Currently the National League has come down to the Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Acquiring players from the Brewers might be difficult since they reside in the same division as the Cardinals. This might not be a big issue when it comes to the Brewers free agents.
Acquiring players from the Dodgers might be easier than from the Brewers, even through free agency, but might require more money from the Cardinals than those from the Brewers. Either way, players from these teams won’t come cheaply thanks to their Championship Series experience.

While the first part looked at free agents only, this examination will dig into the Dodgers and Brewers players who are both to-be free agents and those entering the final year of their contracts. Both options will make suitable targets for the St. Louis Cardinals this offseason.
Each of the following slides will look at both teams in the National League Championship Series that is currently mired in 1-to-1 tie with both teams taking a game while the series was in Milwaukee. The series now moves to LA and will kick off again on Monday night.
