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.
Finally, my favorite scenario. The one my heart longs for. trading for Nolan Arenado.
Trading for Arenado would not come cheap. Especially because the Cardinals have pitching and the Rockies need it.
To me, this is the best player in the game. Defensively and offensively. The Rockies have a lot of young infield talent coming up that could replace him. Plus, they aren’t known to extend huge contracts for free agents – which Arenado will be after next season.
Four game changing options. Here’s hoping one of them wear the birds on the bat next season.
