    Cardinals trade for Masterson

    And give up their 7th best prospect. I'm not sure I get it unless an extension is looming.

    With the luck of the Cardinals, he'll be the 2015 Cy Young winner.

    Not worried about Cardinals, more worried about the Reds circling the drain.

    Don't worry, Joe the Plumber is a Reds fan, right?

    They aren't circling. They are at the Waste Treatment Plant.

    I'm luke warm on this trade however they didn't give up a whole lot for him. I could also see this as potentially an acquisition to sweeten the pot for a much larger trade for the Cardinals. It should also be noted that he has a .350 BABIP, which tells me he's had a mixture of bad luck and bad defense. The Cardinals infield defense has been very good this year so he might be better with the Cardinals than he was with the Indians.

    He also has a 93/56 K/BB ratio and a terrible 5.1 BB/9.

    I am sizzling hot on the trade. Not every day the Cardinals get completely owned on a trade.

    You noted some positives, I noted some negatives.

    Masterson is very good when healthy. If he's healthy, he'll help the Cards this year. Cards taking a risk but a calculated one.

    Ramsey is a good prospect, way too good of one to use to get an injured, starting pitcher rental. But that's the price these days for acquiring help at the deadline.

    I noted something that might explain his bad numbers and I did not say he was going to pitch better.

    I'd be surprised if the Cardinals don't make further moves

    The Cardinals have too many outfielders and Ramsey was blocked. I didn't see him staying with the organization for an extended period of time.

    EDIT: As I alluded to it before, I see something sneaky in the works for the Cardinals. If this is a throw in pitcher for a big deal, then I'm fully on board with this trade.

    Cool, I looked up his crap BB numbers and thought I would share.
