I think he's a likely trade candidate unless the organization thinks EE is a sure thing, and decides to move Alexei once he starts getting expensive instead. I know it rarely happens, but a prospect for a prospect trade could also be intriguing. One blocked prospect for another.
Would you deal Carlos Quentin and Escobar to St. Louis for Colby Rasmus or is that too high a price? Put it another way, would the Cards have to include a prospect in the deal?
