    I tend to agree, especially with a guy like Miller and the Card's situation. I don't think they're going to want players significantly far from reaching the majors unless they get a ridiculous haul.

    Their trade chips are all about enhancing their current product because they have the financial resources and high-level depth.

    Yes, I agree he is the best SS in the game (when he plays). The much-maligned Joe Mauer (as far as health is concerned) has more plate appearances over the past seven years than Tulo. He will be 29 next year and has a history of injuries. I would not doubt the Rockies ask for Tavares and Miller, but I can't see the Cards giving that much up. Tavares is a top 5 prospect and Miller was a top 10 for some. He just went 15-9 with an ERA just over 3 and struck out nearly a batter per inning at 22 years of age. The proposal in this article makes more sense:

    Miller or Lance Lynn

    It's too bad the Twins don't have a SS ready, the Cardinals could move Lance Lynn and/or Miller and still have enough starters. Miller looks like a solid #2 long-term (not knowing how much of a potential attitude problem or whatever) and Lynn can be a solid #3. Both of these guys have performed at the Major League level in the heat of a pennant race and still are cost-controlled for several years.

    If the Twins had a SS ready, he would be penciled in to start SS for the Twins. For all the Twins' pitching needs, they don't have excess position players either aside from possibly Rosario. And he's a good but not great prospect.

    Agreed, St. Louis has everything we need in their gluts, but we have nothing to offer in return. It's disappointing for sure.
