Source: Arizona Paul Goldschmidt has been traded to the St. Louis Cardinals. Luke Weaver, Carson Kelly, Andy Young and a draft pick are headed back.

Quite a haul for Arizona.
That's a nice haul for Arizona

Kelly has struggled mightily in the majors but he still has potential and was once the best catcher prospect in baseball. Sometimes it takes catchers a while to make an impact in the majors.
The best news about this trade  
Jay on the Island : 12/5/2018 5:15 pm : link
is that it keeps Goldschmidt out of Philadelphia.

Also has Andrew Knizner knocking on the door at Catcher so they could afford to move Kelly

Is philly linked to everyone?
Great move for STL

Goldy will soon need an extension, but heís the kind of bat they drastically needed and a very good defender to boot. Weaver has been very up and down, so worth the gamble if heís the centerpiece

Yes, pretty much. Their owner said they were going to spend "crazy money" this offseason.

He is a free agent after next year. He is 31. Cards need to pay him now.
Phillies may get Belt and Bumgarner

Sorry, guess Goldy deal means no deal with Giants.

Heís in a walk year. Still a great trade for the Cards, even if it just gives them the upper hand in free agency. Heís probably in line for a nice 6 year $150M - $175M deal

Didn't their GM say something along the lines of spending "stupid money" this winter??
This is not going over well......

with the fans in Arizona. He was the face of the franchise.
It's akin to the Mets trading Tom Seaver.
Smart organization  
gmenatlarge : 12/6/2018 1:45 pm : link
Not like the Mets who will be overpaying an aging Ped user.
