With the St. Louis Cardinals, who are at the bottom of the National League스포츠토토 Central Division, announcing that they are giving up advancing to the postseason, will last year’s MVP come to the market?
Local media such as Fox Sports in the United States reported on the 13th (hereinafter Korean time) that St. Louis gave up advancing to this postseason and declared a seller.
As a result, great attention is being paid to which players from St. Louis will be on the trade market. It depends on how St. Louis takes it.
If it is the existing seller declaration, Paul Goldschmidt (36) can also appear on the market along with players who are about to acquire free agent qualifications such as Jack Flaherty and Jordan Hicks.
In addition, if the entire team is to be reorganized, Nolan Arenado (32), who has a long contract period, can also wait for a transfer in the trade market.
However, John Mozeliak, who leads St. Louis, made a statement that he would aim to advance to the postseason again in the 2024 season.
As a result, it is unclear whether Goldschmidt, as well as Arenado, will appear in the trade market. This is because Goldschmidt is the core of the batting line.
Goldschmidt, the National League MVP last year, recorded a batting average of 0.284, 15 home runs, 46 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of 0.369 OPS of 0.844 in 87 games in the first half.
The Philadelphia Phillies are currently looking for Goldschmidt. It is not a team from the same district. As a result, the burden on St. Louis is less.
Attention is focusing on whether St. Louis, which declared a seller by giving up on advancing to the postseason, will trade Goldschmidt this summer with a year and a half remaining on his contract.
