Tommy Pham has been traded to the Rays for three prospects
#Rays trade Justin Williams, Genesis Cabrera and Roel Ramirez to #Cardinals for Pham and international slot money— Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) July 31, 2018
Tommy Pham is gone; Viva Tommy Pham! There will be more to follow on this trade for sure. For now, know that Roel Ramirez is a twenty-three-year-old right-handed pitcher in AA, Genesis Cabrera has a great name, is almost twenty-two, is left-handed, and is a pitcher in AA, and Justin Williams, the most interesting of the three to this author, is an almost-twenty-three-year-old outfielder that recently made his major-league debut. Please note that none of these fellas are Chris Archer.

The Cardinals should look into Jesse Chavez
With the loss of Lynn, the Cardinals are looking for a starting pitcher this offseason. While there are attractive free agents on the market, it would be wise to contact the Athletics about Jesse Chavez, who reportedly may be available via trade.
Trevor Rosenthal is a really good closer. An even better closer was just traded, for an absurd return. Should the Cardinals consider trying to move their closer for a similarly huge haul?
