How Cardinals Trade for Paul Goldschmidt Impacts NL Central Race

D-backs fans were devastated about the Paul Goldschmidt trade

In a statement, the baseball team said Goldschmidt will be traded for Right Hand Pitcher Luke Weaver, Catcher Carson Kelly, Infielder Andrew Young, and a 2019 draft pick. We had that question answered by Daniel Descalso, who has played the last two seasons in Arizona with the six-time All-Star. Whatever St. Louis decides to to do there, the team can do it because Goldschmidt is around.

Goldschmidt, a National League All-Star in each of the last six seasons, entered the offseason as one of the biggest trade candidates on the market. The Cardinals believed they needed a boost in the middle of their lineup to compete with the likes of Milwaukee and the Cubs in the NL Central.

Arizona went 82-80 in the NL West and finished behind the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado, which both made the playoffs. And there was obvious concern about the D-backs' ability to sign him beyond this season. He'll be eligible for free agency after the 2019 season. After going 7-2 with a 3.88 ERA, Weaver followed that up with a record of 7-11 and an ERA of 4.95.
