The St. Louis Cardinals will acquire Paul Goldschmidt in a massive trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Cardinals sent catcher Carson Kelly, right-hander Luke Weaver, minor league infielder Andy Young and the Cardinals' Compensation Round B selection in the 2019 Major League Baseball amateur draft to Arizona.

British MP reveals he is HIV positive
Sexual health charity the Terrance Higgins Trust (THT) called for an end to the stigma faced by people living with the virus. There is a gulf between the modern reality of HIV as an entirely manageable condition and the way people perceive it.

Basically what Albert Pujols did to the Cubs when he was with the Cardinals is what Goldschmidt has done so far in his career against the Cubs. This past season, he hit.290/.389/.533 with 33 home runs and 83 RBI in 690 plate appearances while playing above-average defense. The three-time Gold Glove victor and four-time Silver Slugger started 155 games at first base. Given his status as a six-time National League All-Star, his price tag will remain high, despite the fact his contract will expire after next season. Heyward joined the Cardinals entering his walk year, and like Goldschmidt had no previous ties to the organization.

The DeLand native spent three years with FSU, from 2012-14 and dominated, going 16-6 with a 3.04 ERA, striking out 244 compared to walking just 63.
