Pham is going to the Rays and Cards fans on Twitter think they're getting ARCHER. LMAO

Per FG's 2018 prospect ranks, the Rays #17, #27, and unranked prospect. But yeah sure, probably close to getting Archer.

I bet the Cards aren't even done trading today. They might move Ozuna and good "mentor" Bud Norris today. They'll probably move Fowler this offseason in a bad contract swap.

I wonder what their fans would call this season if they moved a bunch of veterans for prospects? Rebuilding? Reloading? Tanking?

Nah, they'd say it's just getting rid of players that don't fit the "Cardinals' Way" probably.

A small pitfall of Twitter... because I have so many "experts" in my MLB News feed, and they re-tweet others that I don't follow... I have no less than 25 tweets on my feed that Pham was traded. I keep looking back when it says "8 new tweets" and they're all about this Pham deal.

Hold on....

There's a baseball player named GENESIS CABRERA.

Dammit; why is my new favorite baseball dude of all time a Cardinal?

RIP the last shred of the dream of the vaunted Pham-Piscotty-Grichuk OF that could have been.

Can someone tell me why we'd want Brad Ziegler and his 4.58 FIP?

He's been dominant in June and July is what I've read.

Why WOULDN'T you want a 38-year old reliever having maybe the worst season of his career? Opportunities like that only come along, like, 74 times a year!

The REALLY impressive thing is that he only gave up 1 dong in July instead of 2 like he did in each of the 3 previous months.
