    They gave Luke Raley to MIN last year for a rental of Brian Dozier. I know Raley is hurt this year but I liked his upside as a LH power bat playing corner OF and 1B above avg and capable of CF. Let’s hope MO paid attention to that and got something worth while.
    I always liked Jedd, but injuries really killed his season.

    Judging by the returns elsewhere for middling players, I’m hopeful that the Cards got something for Jedd. I realize he’s probably not the same guy he was in 2015-16 but he’d be an improvement over Edman and Munoz if healthy, and the Cards chose to pick up a couple of DFA’ed lefties to roster instead.

    stlcard25, I disagree with your “instead” conclusion. No indication whatsoever that the relievers and Gyorko are connected in any way.

    We will see in a half hour to an hour, more than likely. If no more trades happen, would it be more likely that they were connected?

    I guess one could draw a connection by dumping Jedd to clear a 40-man spot for Mejia, though another route could have been chosen instead. Having another back-end reliever vs. an injured infielder hardly seems a big deal, either way.

    Nothing like being sellers at the trade deadline instead of actually improving your team, especially the bullpen. Ooops, I forgot about Mejia and Rosscup.

    We did get a bucket of BP balls for Jedd, so there is that.

    Also, let’s not forget. We are going to get an All Star 3B, a Hall of Fame catcher, and an All Star – middle of the lineup bat – LF that are just as good as trade deadline deals!

    I am sure that will be the spin by Mo, as he’s done it before.

    I’m actually glad we seem to be standing pat, though. This team may be in 1st, but I still don’t really see a contender. I think they will do just enough to get a bad draft pick. They might even sneak in the back door of the playoffs.

    MO sits on his hands and does NOTHING….

    even better the Cubs did make a trade for more offense….typical MO stupidness!

    Cardinals stand pat while all of the other contenders make improvements.

    Dave Dombrowski in Boston and Mo are going to be reading from the same script…

    Boston does have a very talented big-league club.

    So..if we like our own guys for upgrading the offense and the rotation and the pen and all that… hwo can we sell Gyorko for nothing…of all the guys who could help in an impactful way that we have lost for much of the season woudlnt Gyorko add the most potential impact of internal solutions?

    ESPECIALLY with Carp struggling so much?

    We ended up as sellers it seems

    how did this trade make us better in any way?

    A rookie level pitcher with no stats
    an injured and FA to be LHRP

    and we had to pay money and givve up International money?

    how much money was Gyorko owed?

    Is this Marte kid really worth all of it?

    What a major screw up by Mo & DeWallet, I thought they were trying to win in 2019?? The price of Stroman, or several of the RP’s moved today were not that extreme! There were no Gorman’s, Knizners or Carlson’s moved in any of those deals!

    Anyone else ever thought that maybe other GM’s/Exec’s just don’t like Mo or dealing with him because he’s such a _______ ?

    Boston is way way over the luxury tax. The Cardinals aren’t. I can understand why the Red Sox couldn’t pull off a trade.
