I don't think it is a terrible idea. I wouldn't mind using some of the minor league depth to go "all in" before Holliday, Molina, and Waino start declining (but not giving up so much to hamper the future too greatly). How great is this lineup with Tulo? What would the order be?

Tulo
Beltran
Holliday
Craig
Molina
Freese
Carp2
Jay
Pitcher

That is just a guess, but that lineup would be CRAZY good.

Maybe the Cardinals could get the Rockies to pick up a little of the money still owed to Tulo? Or the Cards could send Furcal and his contract to the Rockies in the deal?

I would be shocked if there was any real discussion of that. It is hard to fill a sports network 24/7 during the off season. If anything it may have been mentioned in an attempt to fill time. Don't hold your breathe on that. The Cardinals would never go along with that trade.

This trade would never happen, but if it did, I'd want assurances that Troy Tulowitzki was healthy.

I don't know Willie, what's more common? A power hitting SS or a potential ace prospect? With the assurance that Tulo is healthy, I definitely wouldn't call that a stupid trade...

which is more cost effective, an already proven star who will eat up a teams payroll, or a rising prospect who still makes near league minimum with star talent under team control and cheap price for many years

if tulo would make league minimum for us for several years, then yes you take the proven vet, but you have to factor in cost money wise in the equation, in addition to paying that salary for that player you also pay a prospect ace soon to be major league ready in addition to another young starting pitcher with potential to be a #3 who is also cost effective

you have to pay some stars but a team also needs young cost effective talent to compete when you dont have as huge as a payroll and endless money like the yankees, otherwise you have to fill rest of team with scrubs after paying for the few star players

Good point. Not sure if I would be in favor of this trade but its certainly not a "stupid trade" as Willie dubbed it.

With Tulos injuries recently and the contract hes under I would shy away from him unless there wasnt much being given up.
And "carp4prez" I think the lineup would probably be
Jay
Tulo
Holliday
Craig
Beltran
Molina
Freese
Furcal/Descalso - 2B

There was another one out there started by ESPN that the Cards should trade Jay and I dont know what and get CarGo to play CF.

Lets all be honest with ourselves: we aren't going to acquire Gonzalez or Tulo.
