    what possible minor league cardinals arms would warrant landing soriano? Wainright and Reyes but Reyes is essential to their pitching plans

    be nice if Krivsky can counter this move and make a big trade with the Marlins. On yahoo it says they need a young CF

    we trade Deno (CF), Claussen(SP), Travis Wood(SP), Edwin (3B) and another prospect Robert Manuel (SP)
    for Willis (SP), Herges (RP), and Cabrara (3B)

    this would be a great trade for the Reds!

    Or you could just do Deno for Joe Borowski and a Mitre if he gets healthy and call it a day.

    P.S. The Fish would never do that deal, and no way we would be able to afford Willis and Cabs in about 2 years.

    They won't trade Willis or Cabs, not just yet.

    Wainwright has been in the Major Leagues all season. The last time he was a minor leaguer was in 2005. Anthony Reyes is in the St. Louis Cardinals rotation, so he wouldn't be considered a minor leaguer either. If this report is true (I doubt it is), then it must be a package of one of the Cardinals other many minor league pitching spects.

    The Cards system is weak, no way they get Sorianio without Reyes or Wainwright going to Washington.

    then it must be a package of one of the Cardinals other many minor league pitching spects

    You guys forget who the Washington GM is. JimBo wouldn't know good, young pitching if it was in front of him.

    I can't see the Cards getting Soriano. They need pitching and Bowden would surely demand Wainright and/or Reyes. That won't happen. I do expect the Cards to make a strong bid for Reggie Sanders, though.

    It is somewhat common knowledge that the Cards system hasn't produced much of anything in prospects, either pitching or position, in years, matty. I do think you have one stud arm that I've heard a little bit about, but why not fill us in since for most of us its all we can do to keep up with the state of our own system.

    Of course, Haren netted you Mulder, but youngsters like Reyes and Wainwright came from other orgs.

    I've been looking, I don't see many either. Lambert was probably considered the best before the season, but he hasn't done so great at AA Springfield.

    I think Daric Barton was more responsible for netting the Cardinals Mulder than anything.

    I think Reyes was developed by the Cards, but I have been wrong before.

    If Ankiel weren't injured, they could present him as the only 6-tool outfielder in the minors. Jimbo would probably trade half the team for him.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
