Very rarely have the Cardinals been trade-deadline winners.
Their big-ticket moves in recent offseasons suggested they were very much interested in contending, but some of those key moves have backfired badly.
Some chatters seem to correlate moves that didn't work with moves that were not made.
In reality, moves that didn't work are worse, because if you are not competitive while planning not to be, then you are just following your plan.
This trade deadline was the first time I thought we might see the Cardinals punt, as in realize they were out and trade everything that the assets they could maximize value for that did not appear to have a long-term future with the team. We're talking Norris, J. Martinez, maybe Ozuna and more.
They resisted on those moves that would have a) maximized potential returns and b) helped the chance at better draft picks in the immediate future by pulling the plug on the season because they said they were too close in the standings to raise a white flag.
So, to answer your question, I don't think they are OK with where things stand, based on the changes we have seen this season, and the ones we have not.
Looking only at the trade deadline is not a complete view.
