Cardinals Continue Trading Ways, Make Blockbuster Deal

The Arkansas Cardinals made their second trade in less than 8 hours, sending second baseman Chase Utley, third baseman Brandon Inge, and outfielder Jeremy Hermida for third baseman Miguel Cabrera, late of the Edwardsville Armada.

“Miguel Cabrera is a rare talent, in our view,” said Cardinal owner Daniel Shoptaw, who replaced Arkansas GM Billy Beane at the press conference when Beane reported “flu-like symptoms”.  “I know that Utley is amazing as well, but Cabrera is younger and has even more upside.”

Cabrera has the second-highest contract in United Rotisserie League history, only surpassed by the Conway Capitols’ deal with first baseman Albert Pujols.

“Miguel is a great player, but that contract was swamping us,” Armada owner David Reed said in a press conference.  “We couldn’t do a salary dump on a guy like that, but getting quality players back and reallocating our payroll made this a great deal for us.”
