    Top like that may be available
    Greinke
    Romero
    Syndergaard
    Bumgarner (doubtful they trade him now)

    Next in line that might be
    Minor
    S. Gray
    Boyd
    Duffy
    Ray
    Wheeler
    Vargas

    Greinke and Duffy are owed a lot of $, so they may not take as much in terms of top prospects if team takes on the remaining salary…Greinke no trade clause could probably mean more $ spent to get him to waive if StL is on it.

    Under the Radar LHRP — Francisco Liriano….wouldn’t think they would have to give up a lot for him

    Think they also need to get rid of some guys on the 40 man, and add Junior Fernandez and Azorena to the big league club

    Still think they need a bat (not sure Ozuna will be enough when/if healthy)

    Another top starter would be great but not sure they have enough to make the trade unless they add Gorman or Carlson which they shouldn’t do

    Giants have won 16 of last 19, not sure how they can be sellers unless they fall off this last week

    the starters are killing the bullpen b/c they haven’t made it past the 4th inning the last 2 games

    The starting pitchers are going to kill the bullpen, flaherty can’t get to the 5th yesterday and it will be a miracle if PDL can tonight….that’s a real problem on back to back days

    Did I hear right that bader was 1-14 with a runner at 3rd and less than 2 outs…was 1/2 listening so may have missed it (would be 1-15 now I guess)

    No clue why Munoz doesn’t start more….hitting 355 in the last 30 games, he is no worse than o’neal And Martinez in the outfield who are both butchers out there

    J Martinez is a 4th or 5th outfielder/pinch hitter/DH who has been pressed into to much playing time b/c of injuries and non-production from other players.

    The last 30 games hitting stats are truly horrific

    Some low lights:

    Bader is hitting .138 with 17 SO’s in 58 AB’s 1 RBI
    Goldschmidt hitting .190 with 28 SO’s in 84 AB’s 10 RBI
    Carpenter is hitting .204 with 17 SO’s in 54 AB’s 6 RBI
    DeJong is hitting .228 with 21 SO’s in 92 AB’s 8 RBI

    best hitters in that 30 game period are:

    Fowler is hitting. .269 15 SO’s in 67 AB’s 16RBI
    Wong is hitting .265 with 8 SO’s in 68 AB’s 7 RBI
    Munoz is hitting .355 with 3 SO’s in 31 AB’s 5 RBI
    Edman is hitting .278 with 10 SO’s in 54 AB’s 9 RBI
    Martinez is hitting 267 With 16 SO’s in 75 AB’s 8 RBI

    Gotta chance to go to today’s game; never seen a more inept offense, outside of some hard outs in the 8th was just a bunch of nothing.

    Team needs to add at least 2 new offensive players w/ some energy and get Ozuna back if they are even trying to win the division if they can’t do that they should just go in total rebuild mode. There is just no way that lineup/offense is going anywhere against good pitching let alone average pitching like today.

    I would be encouraged with flaherty’s Start except the Giants didn’t exactly have an all star lineup but it’s the best he has looked in a while for sure.

    If you ever get a chance to go to a game in SF you should go, it’s a great park and friendly fans.

    3 runs scored in the last 30 innings….that’s hard to do

    I will be shocked if there are not some organizational moves made tomorrow

    Cardinals seem to be on a collision course with last place in the division by the end of this road trip against poor to average teams

    The most baffling thing they have done this year to me is extending Carpenter….he wasn’t hitting when they did it and except for a 6 week stretch last year he hasn’t done much of anything the past 2 seasons….it’s almost like they were bidding against themselves, and yet somehow he keeps hitting leadoff w/ the exception of tonight’s game, where Edman has 2 hits.

    In the 35 games the Cardinals have lost this year they are hitting .205 in those games and averaging 2.63 runs per game in those 35 losses

    Not so sure this offense is turning those #’s around w/o some changes

    this team needs a leadoff hitter in a desperate way….Carpenter is a human roadblock up there

    There lineup is really a mess, if you just look at batting averages and runs produced from 1-8 it may be one of the 2 weakest lineups in baseball…I would think to turn that around they will need at least two new bats to add to the lineup, and one has to be a leadoff hitter, b/c it is painfully obvious Carpenter cannot be the leadoff man hitting in the .220’s,

    Cardinals #6, 7, and 8 hitter are 1 for there last 31…the 1 was a single by Molina on Sunday

    Bader while good defensively looks like he is not going to be able to hit enough to be a regular starter especially in this lineup

    heck I would try to swing a deal for the outfielder the Yankees sent down after getting Encarnacion, Clint Frazier, hitting .283 w/ 11HR’s and 34 RBI’s in 53 games…..w/ stats like that he would be our best hitter
