The St. Louis Cardinals are likely to be bargain shoppers in free agency. Here are a few low-cost options that they might pursue.
The 2020 offseason is going to put the front office of the St. Louis Cardinals in a precarious position. The decision will be a tough one to go all-in with one last ride for Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright while the division seems to be faltering, or whether to save money and look toward the future.
We can all agree that the 2020 season was a year that we can all hope to forget (unless you are Dodgers fans). With the shortened season and the uncertainty of the protocols, it makes it harder than ever to evaluate impending free agents. But even with the shortened season, teams must make the financial commitments to improve their team for the upcoming years. While knowing and understanding that the Cardinals would like to save as much money as possible, we are going to look at some free agents who will not cost the Cardinals an arm and a leg but will hopefully produce like a top free agent. Since we all now know that owning a baseball team “isn’t very profitable” we will be careful not to include free agent targets that will be unrealistic to this team.
