They seemed to be considering a minor sale, but opposing teams complained they wanted a haul for free-agent-to-be Lance Lynn, a nice starter who could have been replaced by Luke Weaver from the Cardinals’ fertile farm system. Anyway, the hope seems to be that they will regain the Cardinals Way after it went missing a year and a half ago and hasn’t been seen since. They make too many mistakes in the field and on the basepaths, and could really use a middle-of-the-order rock, which led to the longshot call to the Marlins for Giancarlo Stanton. They did get Tyler O’Neill for former No. 1 pick Marco Gonzales, and O’Neill has that potential. Ironically, Matt Adams has served that middle-of-the-order role for the Braves since they traded him for a prospect to the Braves for a middle-of-the-road prospect, Juan Yepez.
