I love this move. Getting this guy in one of the better baseball markets is SO long overdue. He may miss the prime weather in Arizona, but he’ll forget about it when he gets a load of this fanbase.
The thing about the Cardinals, you can never count them out. They even made a late surge last season once they fired Mike Matheny. Honestly, I never would’ve thought that move would’ve worked like it did. Sometimes you really just need to hear a new voice, I guess.
But you insert Goldy into any lineup and that offense instantly becomes a challenge. I still think Joey Votto has the edge on who’s the best first baseman in all of baseball, even though Goldschmidt can scoot a little bit, too. Now we’ll get to watch them both face off in the NL Central, which might be the best division in baseball now.
