The good version of Story is way better than the recent version of DeJong. But this comes down to price and the belief (or lack thereof) that the Cardinals can get the good Story.
I don't think that would stick, buy you never know with hockey players.
If the team moves No. 91, I still say the top need is a true shutdown defenseman to balance up that part of the team.
The Reds have already warned fans that they are reeling in their spending. The Pirates are awful and the Cubs will need more than one year to rebuild. The Brewers will still have great pitching, but they are deciding whether to make a qualifying offer to Avisail Garcia. If they don't get Christian Yelich back on track offensively, that team could take a step back offensively.
There are ways to finesse the salary cap if nobody else goes on long-term injured reserve. For instance, they could carry fewer players. Kyle Clifford has been the odd man out most nights when healthy, so he could be in some peril.
He has sort of done that here and there, but he puts everything in Mo-Speak so it's can be hard to detect.
How will history remember the Austin Dean era?
