Cardinals news and notes: Manny Machado, Marcell Ozuna, and the Rule 5 draft

The action of the weekend was inaction, but we also got lots of speculation!

MLB: Miami Marlins at Colorado Rockies Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

In case you spent the weekend actually doing things rather than constantly updating Twitter in search of news that never actually happened (no, you’re the weirdo), here is what you may have missed from VEB.

  • I compared Baltimore Orioles third baseman and rumored potential St. Louis Cardinals target Manny Machado to another one-year rental the Cardinals acquired three years ago, right fielder Jason Heyward.
  • Aaron Schafer examined the need for the Cardinals to make further moves beyond last week’s acquisition of Miami Marlins left fielder Marcell Ozuna.
  • The Rule 5 draft was last week, and the Cardinals drafted outfielders Angel Moreno and Jean Selmo. Know much about them? Liars! Josey Curtis wrote about them.
