I hope we make a move soon. We need to decide whether or not the Arenado trade is going to happen or not, and if not, sign Ozuna or a guy like Castellanos. 

Would you rather bring back Ozuna or sign Castellanos? I'm kind of on the fence. Castellanos is younger but seems to be a little worse in the field. We could snag a draft pick by letting Ozuna sign elsewhere too. I think Marcell would be better next year at the plate, though. I feel like he likes it here too and the team seems to like him too.

Honestly, it's about 50/50 for me for all the reasons you listed.

I do like having players that enjoy being here though and there wouldn't be any adjustment time since he's already familiar with the team, so I would slightly lean Ozuna.

That's sort of what I think too. This is completely unsupported by data but it really does seem like free agents that go to new cities struggle a little at first. I think Ozuna would just hit the ground running.

The Cardinals don’t seem to have any interest in Castellanos, which is somewhat surprising considering the draft pick isn’t attached to him.

I agree. I feel like Ozuna and Goldy both struggled when they first got here (might be remembering it wrong), so I usually tend to favor players who are already familiar with the team if everything else is pretty equal.

That was an interesting thought cycle on Twitter.  Let Ozuna walk and collect the draft pick, and sign Castellanos for probably a similar (maybe even slightly smaller) contract as Ozuna.

Seems like it’s just a matter of time before Beltran gets fired by the Mets. That kind of sucks, don’t really want him to be involved in all this cheating mess. I loved him as a Cardinal. But the evidence is pretty clear.

Jon Heyman reporting that Braves are now re-engaging on Ozuna and Castellanos after loosing out on Donaldson. He said they prefer Ozuna and could drive his market up some...

Also, Rangers now entering the Arenado trade talks...

I feel pretty confident that we already know exactly what it will take to keep Ozuna, and that really isnt going to change. Its just a matter if we want him or not

CMart will begin throwing off mound. He said he fully expects to be in the rotation and more importantly, he wants to be now...

Said it himself today...

Goold reporting that Carpenter has told him he will waive his NTC for the right opportunity and will not block a trade if it makes sense for organization as well...

Also, Cards hoping Alex Reyes will be a high leverage RP for us to start the year...

Our pitching could be really fun this year.

Ozuna officially to the Braves for 1 year, $18 million. Looks like Thomas or O’Neil will be our starting LF on Opening Day.
