The Cardinals fanbase would be be that pissed off in trading for the No. 1 prospect in baseball, at a severe position of need, and solving the franchise's SS situation for the next 12 years?
What would piss them off? Moving Taveras by itself? Or having to surrender some secondary prospects in additional to Taveras to get him?
A straight-up swap of Taveras and Profar isn't going to happen.
Have to give up enough to make the trade worth the Rangers' while...
