With so many teams looking for a third baseman I might put Freese name out there. If traded you could move Carpenter to third and promote Wong from Triple A for a veteran reliever or mid range starter not mess with Garza.

Tough to trade a World Series hero, but I kind of see that scenario playing out eventually, with Carpenter at third and Wong at 2B.

If they are going to try to make a CF out of Taveras, I can actually now see them trying to retain Beltran beyond this year. If they were thinking that, I could see them trying to move Freese to eliminate a higher salary in order to keep Carlos. Problem is that I see Beltran wanting a 2 or 3 year deal, and I doubt Mozeliak would want to do that.

Do you see them making any kind of move for a shortstop before the deadline? I don't think there is much out there available, other than Alexi Ramirez.

I just read a rumor on another site of Matt Adams and Kozma going to Chicago for Alexi Ramirez and Jesse Crain.

Interesting thought, but I can't see it. I don't think Mozeliak thinks that Kozma is enough of a weakness to move Adams.

Doesn't sound like good news on Carpenter. Does this make Mozeliak more motivated to find a starting pitcher before the deadline? I don't think there is a lot available that makes sense, so I believe we'll go with a #5 starter that comes from the group of Kelly/Martinez/Wacha......or some combination thereof.
