St. Louis Cardinals have been a disappointment in the first half of 2023
Like the White Sox, the St. Louis Cardinals are in a similar situation in terms of a weak division with the Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers leading the way, but things are been a disappointment from Opening Day for the Red Birds.
They have been buried in the basement of the division all season and sit at 38-52 at the break after winning two out of three of the White Sox over the weekend. How bad are things this season for the Cardinals? They are 14 games under .500 at the All-Star Break for the first time since 1986.
Adam Wainwright is pitching in what is likely his final season and even though St. Louis fans don’t want to hear it, they very well might be destined for a rebuild. If that’s the case, being sellers at the trade deadline is the way for them to go.
Paul Goldschmidt is not going to play his final couple of seasons with a team in a rebuild and would get them a decent package in return. Tommy Edman is someone who would draw some interest from teams looking for infield help and they should listen on some of their pitchers. Seasons like this have not happened much in St. Louis.
