Wow. Just wow. Looking forward to finding out what's headed to AZ. Gotta imagine it involves Reyes/Flaherty+.

Stlcards will be getting Goldy

Cards will get multiple pieces back including players with big-league experience for Goldy

Holy. Crap. The Cards have raped and pillaged AZ.

#DBacks getting Luke Weaver, Carson Kelly, Andy Young and a draft pick from #STLCards for Goldschmidt, sources tell The Athletic.

Holy smokes. That's too light. AZ got robbed. If that's all it took, there's no way you can tell me with a straight face that Cashman couldn't have put together a better package.

Are we ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN Dave Stewart is no longer the GM?

When [MENTION=12878]death2redemptions[/MENTION] sees this thread, HE. IS. GOING. TO. HIT. THE. F***ING. ROOF.

It's ok to cry. Or scream.

Cards are geniuses. Congrats, [MENTION=3127]Super Mario[/MENTION].

I've stepped away from collecting for the most part, but had to chime in and say that my Goldy jersey is now soaked with the thousand tears I've cried. I knew he was going to go, but for such a piss poor return...

I think it's safe to say that Stewart is a goner. Yes, Goldschmidt only had one year of control, but he's not your average rental. The D'Backs easily could've waited the market out and plucked a top prospect away from someone.

I saw the breaking news on mlb.com & before scrolling down the article on my iphone I was thinking "Well this blows, but the Cards do have some great mlb ready young starting pitchers...maybe Reyes or Flaherty with Dakota Hudson tossed in there"

After reading it all I could think is "why do all our GM's suck balls at making trades?"

Paul Goldschmidt is 1 of 2 position players and 3 players overall with 4.5+ WAR each season since 2013. The others are Mike Trout and Max Scherzer.

My first thought! Bring in Goldy and sign Harper or Machado and you are really in it next season

I can't believe it really happened, I thought AZ would hold on and try to get him to do a sweetheart deal. It does feel like the cards got the better end but hard to predict how Goldy's decline happens, maybe he plays well until 37, 38 and this deal seems like a joke, maybe he drops off a cliff after 33, so hard to say. [MENTION=3127]Super Mario[/MENTION], what say you?
 
You're in the fourth level of inception. Leo DiCaprio will explain it all to you.
He simply looked me in the eyes and proceeded to say...."Worst. Deal. Ever."

Then I woke up on the Titanic...which if interpreted by a dream specialist may symbolize both my love for DiCaprio and my thoughts of the D-Backs 2018/19 offseason (goodbye Corbin & Goldy you shall be missed)

Maybe you will wake up tomorrow and read that it was just fake news. NA.

At least Topps now knows who Paul Goldschmidt is!

That's about 8 less times seeing Goldy in the opposing batters box each season... or probably a hundred more times I have the chance to see Goldy play on TV each year.

Ugh, not only do I hate it when teams are basically forced to trade away their franchise player, especially one as beloved as Goldy, but what the Diamondbacks got back in return is an insult to everything he’s accomplished the past six seasons.
