The St. Louis Cardinals have a lot of work to do this winter. From needing to sure up the bullpen, to adding an impact bat, and potentially adding depth to the starting rotation. There seem to be four impact bat scenarios floating around and each seem to be beneficial.
Signing Josh Donaldson. This keeps resurfacing and seems like a very Cardinal move. I just can’t get on board.
It’s not because I think Donaldson isn’t a god player – I do. You just don’t know what you are going to get.
Will he play more than 50 games? 100 games? 120? 140? In 2019 he will be 33.
This is the cheapest way out for the Cardinals to still say they did something this winter. I honestly think it would back fire. I’d love to see Donaldson have a bounce back year.
I’d just love to see it even more on a different team with Bryce Harper in our right field.
