Jon DanielsPlease note that this isn’t a report of actual interest but instead speculation that two clubs make a natural fit in possible trade talk.

The Cardinals sending a young starting pitcher to the Rangers for a shortstop makes an awful lot of sense, too.

A few days ago, a report from St. Louis pointed out that the Cardinals have tons of starting pitching depth and that it’s “increasingly likely” either Lance Lynn or Shelby Miller is shopped in hopes of landing a shortstop.

And wouldn’t you know it, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported Wednesday that the Rangers are “pondering whether” to trade a middle infielder.

So Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak placing a call to Rangers GM Jon Daniels sounds like an ideal offseason decision.
