The St. Louis Cardinals season was one for the history books. After overwhelming odds, the Cardinals persevered and conquered. The Cardinals are hitting the off-season knowing this team is close- They just need to make a couple more moves.
The St. Louis Cardinals are coming off a season filled with pretty much every emotion possible. After an OK start to the season, then regressing in the heart of the season, to making an unreal run in September so they can play in October. It was a memorable season.
The Cardinals were unable to make much of a run for the World series after getting eliminated by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Wild Card game. It was a hard fought game, but the Cardinals came up short in the end after closer Alex Reyes gave up a walk-off home run to Chris Taylor.
While reading in between the lines of this past season, there is some clarity. Even though the Cardinals are close to making a run for the World series, there is one thing they should consider doing this offseason. What you may ask? They should consider trading Harrison Bader.
Now, I’m sure you are not in agreement with that statement, and that’s fine. You don’t have to agree with this take and I understand. However, my goal of this article is that you see my reasoning.
