And I think I've made this point already in this thread (or the end of the last one) but what is the point in plugging the hole for a few years? We have literally nobody on the farm. Hell, the one guy that may have had a shot at making it, Peoples-Walls, just got moved to the OF along with Piscotty and Carson Kelly (or other legitimate prospect for the left side of the IF). Evidently the organization is just giving up on the IF altogether and is going to stockpile arms and OFers.

They appear to have no plan for the most important position on a major league diamond. It's just a complete mind-****.
We have so many assets and so many needs. They can't plug every hole with an All-Star, and it's not just the Cardinals who are wanting for shortstop. It's a hard position to find. It'd be nice if they were better at finding one, but you don't always locate a 10 year solution at every position, even if you really want to.

The Red Sox did nothing but plug holes for years with marginal players at short after they traded Hanley for Beckett.

It's not ideal, but a two-three year fix may leave the team in better shape than what it would take to get a five-seven year fix.
