The Athletic’s Jim Bowden listed the St. Louis Cardinals as a player for three of today’s stars via trade this offseason.

The St. Louis Cardinals are no stranger to being linked to today’s biggest stars. They acquired both Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado in recent years via trade, and were a major player for Juan Soto at the 2022 trade deadline.

With the Cardinals emerging as a major contender this season, many around the league are beginning to speculate about how the club could launch themselves from “one of the teams in the mix” to a World Series favorite this offseason. With a great core in play for future seasons, as well as an elite farm system, the club has the ability to make major moves.

In a piece posted on The Athletic (paid subscription required) by former MLB GM and current MLB Insider Jim Bowden, he talked about five stars who may find themselves on the trade market this offseason, and listed the Cardinals as contenders for three of them.

Here are three stars that St. Louis may be in play for this offseason, and what it may take to acquire each of these players.
