That's the day the Cardinals roll into town. His career averages, for reference, are .297/.398/.532 with 31 homers. At some point, though, manager Bruce Bochy said it was about time to adjust and start taking the bat out of Goldschmidt's hands.
"I'm not hoping," he said at the time. When it happens over and over again.". Pollock is also a free agent? In 28 at-bats against Lincecum, Goldschmidt had 15 hits. That series helped spur Goldschmidt to another fantastic season -- .290 average, 33 homers, .922 OPS -- but Giants pitchers no longer have to deal with a man who has hit them at an astounding rate over the years. Without a high-grade cambio, it's hard to see Weaver sticking in a big-league rotation for long. Goldschmidt has been particularly cruel to the best the Giants have had to offer. section: | slug: paul-goldschmidt-trade-grades-move-is-a-winner-for-the-cardinals-diamondbacks-didnt-get-enough | sport: baseball | route: article_single.us | His offensive output is more uncertain, but an average stick would make him more than worth the lion's share of playing time. To his credit, Lincecum was always up to the challenge, and he walked Goldschmidt just five times as he tried to find a way to solve him. The rest of the deal is where things fall apart for us. #TimeToFly pic.twitter.com/65SThIrDli, — St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) December 5, 2018. It's also nice to receive validation, so let's provide it by dishing out a grade for both sides.

They’ll also probably want to consider what it would take to sign Goldschmidt long-term, as he’ll be one of the top free agents next offseason and they have a year to lock him up before anybody else does. That was already their suspected route, given Patrick Corbin and A.J. In good times and bad, Lincecum could never find a way to get Goldschmidt out. Whatever happens there, Cardinals fans should be pleased -- their team just landed one of the best first basemen in baseball in exchange for depth pieces.
Promising youngsters Carson Kelly and Luke Weaver headline the package going back to the D-backs. If there's a downside here, it's a slight one and it's that Goldschmidt has just one year of team control remaining. Kelly has the chance to be a starting backstop thanks foremost to his defensive chops. 6-keys: media/spln/mlb/reg/free/stories, at If so, is Zack Greinke a trade candidate? He homered seven times, drove in 17 runs and posted a 1,916 OPS. Would another team take on his contract? Arizona has a good front office. He's athletic (he converted from third base earlier in his career), he has a strong arm, and he's regarded as a field-general type who can handle a pitching staff. Paul Goldschmidt trade grades: Move is a winner for the Cardinals; Diamondbacks didn't get enough St. Louis didn't have to give up much to make a serious upgrade “That's the definition of insanity, right? "I'm going to figure it out.".

Goldschmidt had 10 homers off them the past three seasons, but now he's no longer a concern, at least until next July 5. "There are times where you go, 'Wait a minute, this is not working,' “ Bochy said in 2013. It was also the end of an era. (A draft pick also swapped hands.). The trade means that the Cardinals are likely out of the competition for Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, but will still be looking to improve elsewhere. In Phoenix, the local coverage was full of "What's wrong with Goldschmidt" pieces, and national writers anonymously quoted scouts and executives who wondered if the 31-year-old was starting a steep decline. Goldschmidt has 22 homers against the Giants in 469 at-bats, with with 31 doubles, 79 RBI and 78 runs.
