    Cardinals Trade Discussion Thread

    Put trades and rumors from reputable sources here. I'll put the stuff we already know or that's been said here in the first post.

    Let's start with the thing that really put us in the starting pitcher market

    #STLCards‬ P Chris Carpenter will not pitch in 2012. Hear from Carp: .
    Ken Rosenthal notes while the Cards would be interested according to a source inside the team they are not willing to meet Brewers price on Greinke

    Greinke remarked that some of his Brewers teammates didn’t like when Carpenter shouted at hitters from the mound, saying that, “his presence, his attitude out there is sometimes like a phony attitude.”
    So, how is that Greinke trade for the Cardinals looking?

    Well, Greinke’s comments wouldn’t necessarily stop the Cardinals from pursuing him, according to one official with knowledge of the team’s thinking. But the Cardinals would not be willing to meet the Brewers’ price, and doubt that the Brewers would even trade Greinke to a division rival, the official said.

    Cardinals could have interest in Wandy Rodriguez and Brett Myers of the Astros

    Greinke, Hamels and Garza aren’t the only available options, however. The Astros, who are prepared to move left-hander Wandy Rodriguez and right-handed reliever Brett Myers, among others, would appear an obvious partner; their GM, Jeff Luhnow, drafted many of the Cardinals’ top prospects during his tenure in St. Louis.

    Cardinals have shown interest in Cubs Matt Garza

    Teams that scouted Matt Garza last night, sources say: ‪#BlueJays‬, ‪#Indians‬, ‪#Reds‬, ‪#RedSox‬, ‪#DBacks‬, ‪#STLCards‬.
    Garza is probably my personal first choice since he's under control for next season

    Cardinals interested in Trading for Fuentes

    the ‪#STLCards‬ have some interest in veteran lefty brian fuentes, who the a's are DFA'ed & are trying to trade.

    The Cardinals are interested in trading for Athletics left-hander Brian Fuentes, reports Jon Heyman of (via Twitter). Oakland designated the reliever for assignment on Tuesday after he posted a 6.84 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 in 26 appearances.

    The Cardinals currently have two left-handers in their bullpen but could benefit from adding Fuentes to the mix as Marc Rzepczynski (5.52 ERA) has struggled and Barret Browning has only pitched 4.1 innings in his entire Major League career. Fuentes, 37 in August, is in the second year of a two-year, $10.5MM contract he signed following the 2010 season. He'll earn $5MM this year and his contract includes a $6.5MM club option for 2013 ($500K buyout).
    I think the Fuentes deal is likely unless someone else jumps in and snatches him, we seem to have good luck fixing broken pitchers and this guy can be pretty good when he's right

    Discuss and put anything else you'd like in here for trades, rumors and what you would like to see the team do.

    I think the Cardinals are going to go after a similar deal like last year with Toronto/White Sox to land a SP and bullpen help which includes a LHP and set up man. Not sure if this will have to be a three team deal to complete it or not. It seems that Wandy and Brett Myers and getting Fuentes would be the cheapest move for the Cardinals, but not sure if this would be best for the club . The new CBA agreement and the inability of getting draft picks in return may make the Cardinals reluctant to trade away top prospects by going after potential rental SP like Hamels or Grienke unless we can turn around and sign them. I'd like to see the Cardinals go after a 2B as well like Aaron Hill if available, but Skip has been playing well enough so far.

    I'd rather just keep skip, Descalso and Greene at 2B unless a 2B is part of the deal, pitching should be the main focus.

    I'd rather take on Wandy than lose the prospects for a Greinke. My first choice is garza but he will be expensicve
