Also was thinking about this... let's play pretend and flash forward to mid-season or this time next year. Say Orlando Calixte is raking at Northwest Arkansas (.280/.330/.500 slash). At his age, and if his D at SS holds up, that probably makes him a top 50 prospect. Would St. Louis be interested enough in a young SS to move one of the power RHPs for him? With Rosenthal, Miller, Jenkins and Martinez, seems like there's a surplus there that might match up.
Cards perspective on that? Not sure how dire a need SS is for you guys.
No way Mo our GM can expect a Calixte for a utility player. Nor anything less than a Meyer + more for any of those other pitchers you mentioned.
Kelly or Lynn maybe. For crissakes Lynn won 18 games last year.
I think DJ was talking about throwing in Kelly and Shumaker. Thats too much for me. I think Kelley would be your #2 or #3 starter. He throws in the high 90's and doesn't walk a lot of hitters. He's a top notch talent. And he's the grandson of Machine Gun Kelly. Think of the marketing.
