Re: looking ahead to 2012
IMO the Cards are the team that is most likely to add talent. It wouldn't shock me at all to hear them add Hardy, a closer or another TOR/MOR arm.
It is difficult to say what the Cards will do. I have heard rumors that the Padres are asking for someone like Carlos Martinez for Bell. Guys like Martinez and Miller are practically untouchable in the Cardinals organization right now with the Pujols contract looming. The only real trade pieces I see the Cards giving up are Zach Cox, Jon Jay, or Allen Craig. I don't know if it is likely the Cards will make a move to be honest with you.
