My game recommendation today of MLB The Show 19 Stubs
Posted by Rskingdom in Games on February 28th, 2019
The Cubs traded for Anthony Rizzo in a down cycle. The Astros picked up Chris Devenski. The
Diamondbacks dealt for Patrick Corbin. The Brewers traded for Travis Shaw and Corey Knebel. Again,
this list isn't exhaustive, but it's powerful.The Cardinals missed the playoffs in buy stubs mlb the show 19 2016 and 2017, but
they weren't sellers. Yes, they traded Mike Leake to Seattle last August, but that was more about
moving on from a free-agent contract that hadn't really worked out as they'd hoped.
The front office should look at the rest of 2018 as an opportunity to do an on-the-fly reset similar
to what the Yankees did in 2016. Knowing they planned to contend again in 2017 but understanding the
reality of the standings in late July, the Yankees traded away Aroldis Champan and Andrew Miller.
The 2018 Cardinals, of course, don't have trade chips quite like Miller or Chapman. That's why it
would be similar in theory only to what the Yankees did in 2016 and not exactly like what they did.
Short of trading ace Carlos Martinez — who's on a team-friendly contract that includes club options
through 2023 — in a blockbuster deal, they don't have anyone who would bring back a return
comparable to Chapman (Gleyber Torres) or Miller (Clint Frazier).
Which MLB The Show 19 players could they trade, then? If they decide to sell, Bud Norris could be the
first one dealt. He's a free agent after the season and he has vastly outperformed the one-year,
million deal the Cardinals gave him this offseason. He has taken over the closer's role (17 of 19 in
save opportunities), and contenders can never have enough late-inning help in the bullpen. The fans
might riot if the Cardinals trade franchise mainstay Matt Carpenter, but the 32-year-old could
command a solid return.
He's not great on defense, but he's competent enough to play first, second or third, and after MLB 19 the show stubs a slow
start to the season he's up to a.909 OPS, 20 homers and a 3.4 fWAR (through Thursday). He's under
contract for .5 million in 2019, with a club option for .5 million ( million buyout) in 2020.
EXTRA, EXTRA: Carpenter makes history with power display Maybe they deal left fielder Marcell Ozuna,
who's set to be a free agent after 2019.
