This weekend we learned Paul Goldschmidt did not agree to an extension with the Cardinals like the rumors suggested he might have. I do not believe many of us are surprised that random rumor did not pan out. I know some people are frustrated, but if I am being honest, trying to figure out the legitimacy of that rumor was the second most exciting Cardinals-related story of this offseason, at least for me.
The first was the acquisition of Goldy in the first place. He is like, really good, you know? If you didn’t know he was good, here is some information for you, courtesy of MLB Network:
The best first-baseman in baseball plays for the Cardinals. Feels good to write that once again!
I am a bit out of pocket now, but I still want to provide some links, so here is what I got for you:
