I am starting this thread to discuss trades around the league OTHER than those involving the Cards since we already have one for that. Of course the main deadline is July 31, however as we have seen in the past, sometimes big name players can move in August (Verlander), so maybe this thread will have some relevance for awhile.
The noteworthy moves so far:
Herrera to Nationals
Machado to Dodgers
Chavez to Cubs
Hand to Indians
Familia to A’s
Britton to Yankees
Eovaldi to Red Sox
Andriese to Dbacks
Oh to Rockies
Maldonado to Astros
Soria to Brewers
Happ to Yankees
Venters to Braves
Hamels to Cubs

Nice pickup for Tui. #10 prospect in the Mariners system. Now, if we can just get a high level (AAA/AA) high ceiling position prospect or two. Or three.July 27, 2018 at 2:19 pm #62454

Holland – DFA
Lyons – DFA
Cecil – DLJuly 27, 2018 at 2:35 pm #62463
This would be big for the Brewers if it happens.July 27, 2018 at 2:41 pm #62465
Things could get really crazy if the Nats decide to sell. Not to mention the names listed in this tweet but what if Harper, Murphy, Adams, Reynolds, etc… become available? It would be a feeding frenzy!July 27, 2018 at 3:14 pm #62479
Ponce back up
Weaver back up
Greene upJuly 27, 2018 at 3:16 pm #62480
Sorry, it’s Webb, not Greene.July 27, 2018 at 3:44 pm #62482

I don’t know much about Elledge, but they should have gotten the best lefty pitcher they could find instead.

A team that is really flying under the radar is the Oakland A’s. They are right on the heels of the Mariners for the second wild card spot. As unpredictable as Billy Beane is who knows what else they will do besides getting Familia. He could be on the phone with Washington to do something big.July 27, 2018 at 4:16 pm #62489
I agree a lefty would have been preferable.July 27, 2018 at 4:22 pm #62491

These recent moves have shown me that not only are the Cardinals playing for the future but that the FO has not given up on the season just yet. Great trade getting a top 10 prospect for tui which opened up a spot along with other moves that opened 3 more spots allowing us to strengthen are depleted bullpen while getting a quality pitcher to make starts until Wacha, CMart, and waino. Return. I’m looking forward to the stretch run of the season. Not only for this season but what to look forward to in seasons to come.July 27, 2018 at 4:56 pm #62495
Phillies get Asdrubal Cabrera from the Mets. Who says you can’t trade within the division?July 27, 2018 at 7:01 pm #62499
Hope Mo isn’t through. Lots more opportunities. There seem to be certain other GMs he likes to do business with, including the Mariners. Maybe more moves with Marlins, Toronto, Atlanta, Royals, As, etc.?July 27, 2018 at 7:16 pm #62501

The difference in farm systems is interesting…the Mariners’ #10 became the Cards’ #21.July 27, 2018 at 7:35 pm #62503
25, I would guess they rely on team reporters for their rankings. They are different from team to team. On top of different eyes of evaluation, different people have different criteria. The Cardinal expert may value relievers less than the Mariner’s expertJuly 27, 2018 at 9:30 pm #62567
Take it that the club has given up on Lyons?July 27, 2018 at 9:42 pm #62572
Lyons was cut loose. He’s gone.July 27, 2018 at 9:47 pm #62575

That’s not true.
Lyuons is not necessarily gone.
He was out of options, though, so he must clear waivers before they can send him to the minors, and then he can opt to be a free agent, though I don’t know why he would do that if he has cleared waivers.July 27, 2018 at 10:11 pm #62592
DFA?July 27, 2018 at 11:01 pm #62597
Paul, Lyons doesn’t have 5 years of service time. I don’t believe he can declare himself a FA if he clears waivers and the Cards want to assign him to the minors
