I’m not trying to be a boo-bird on Jagers idea, I know how hard it is to just come close on lining up players.
Haniger might be done. I don’t believe even SEA knows what to expect. A herniated disk surgery is serious stuff when swinging a golf club or bat. And hey, he might be fine too, but it’s that risk that causes clubs to wait and see proof one way or the other.
The risk is we could be giving Gant away, and he’s been valuable as a Cardinal. As far as the roster implications, I agree with trading from depth, but taking a medical flier on Haniger could also be worse than what we received from the OF this season. I’d pass at this time.
If Lindor really wants to play for a big market team, that’s his business. We certainly don’t want a player here who doesn’t particularly want to play for the Cardinals organization and it’s fan base. That leaves us with Arenado who does want to play here, or we continue to build from within.
Mud, there’s still Baez, Correa, Seager and Story hitting the market next year. Unless they all return to their same teams, there will be some options out there. I might like Seager more than Lindor, actually.
