12:19 PM ET 04.21 | It makes for a delicious discussion how a couple of annual contenders, the Cardinals and Texas Rangers, could fill present needs and fortify future lineups by swapping, straight up, two of baseball's elite prospects. The notion Cardinals standout Oscar Taveras and Texas' Jurickson Profar -- two familiar names with galactic potential -- could be exchanged in the rarest of moves fits all the talking points of the juiciest trade rumor. It must be noted, though, who isn't talking about it. The two general managers have not. They must know better. "It makes all sorts of sense and there is no way to do it," said an official with an American League team who has scouted both players but is not authorized to talk publicly about other clubs' players. "The Cardinals need a shortstop. The Rangers need an outfielder. The answer is there for both for years to come. You just can't do it. You can't be the guy who is wrong if one works out and becomes a star as expected and the other doesn't. Then you're the new Brock-for-Broglio guy."

So...this story is about an unprecedented exchange of top prospects - that isn't going to happen. Good stuff.

Plus if I'm not mistaken, I saw this story on the SLPD about a week or so ago. If it wasn't there, it was someplace else. Either way it's old.
