Monday speculation post and comment thread
The M’s seem to need and be looking for (one or both of) an additional starting pitcher of modest talent (since with current MLB playoff scheduling you barely need two SPs once you get there) and a right-handed outfielder you can play part-time and who can field well.
And possibly a catcher on a short deal.
However… we’ve seen that what the front-office really likes to do is make some crazy awesome “win-win” move that hasn’t even been speculated about yet.
So: what could the next move possibly be, then? You want:
1. Plausibility (Cards aren’t going to give up Pujols)
3. Lack of previous predictions by punditry
4. And a full ten points for style
