    That's fine, but don't take a bunch of trash in return.

    In all of 131 MLB at bats. Wouldn’t call that a career average just yet

    Oh I fully understood the logic behind the concept of trading him, but it ONLY makes sense if we got any kind of value from him, but this is a TERRIBLE trade.

    Most of us are not upset about him being traded period, but we just gave him away and it pisses us off.

    Exactly, we got a big truckload of nothing. I've visited a Cardinal reddit page and they are beyond overjoyed with this trade and laughing at the Dbacks as usual.

    I cant wait to see what we get for Grienke and Peralta! Hello 3rd round compensatory secodary draft pick! Can you say top 100 AA prospects? It's gonna be super awesome!

    Greinke won't bring much because of the contact. Peralta because of age. Goldy because of impending fee agency. The Dbacks made the bed and now they have to sleep in it. You shouldn't be happy about it but I think you need to face the simple reality.

    The Dbacks waited one year too long.

    I don't know if I agree. Does anyone REALLY want to pay a 32-28 year old Goldschmidt 25 million a year?

    I do understand both sides though. Goldschmidt WAS the Dbacks. So this one hurts.

    Last season is the year they should have dethroned LA. Couldn't do it. Time to reshape the future.

    Hazen is not a dumb guy, that is probably the best deal we could get for Goldy, particularly being an free agent in 1 year, most teams wouldnt want to give up the entire farm for a possible 1 year rental.

    We were not close to a “championship caliber team.”
    And Doan retired, and Fitz is still here... What’s your point?

    Coyotes are fun to watch and seem to be coming out of their rebuild. Don't sleep on them...and be ready for Dbacks in 3 years. I think both teams have similar GMs.

    The Sun's could really learn from the Coyotes on how to complete a rebuild and be competitive and fun to watch.

    Here's what you should be saying to the Cards fans...it's a little ironic that the Cards had Pujols on a low contract for years, and when he was 31ish, they traded him because they saw the decline coming and didn't want to pay for it. With Goldy they just went against what they historically do.

    The report of the Yankees offering Sheffield and Hazen rejecting it better be false...

    How many years is Sheffield under control?

    Plus they really wanted a MLB ready young catcher, and they're really high on the infielder.

    I'd rather have less years of control of a player actually worth controlling than infinite control over an infinite number of AAAA players.

    As for the catcher, he has already proved to be a bust. We already have a half dozen catchers in the organization better than him. I didn't think it possible, but his MLB performance has been worse than Avila and Murphy here.

    As for the infielder, what makes our scouts think so highly of a guy in his mid 20s who can barely crack the Top 30 in the Cardinals system?

    Hot garbage. All of it.
