#Cardinals GM John Mozeliak on "slow-moving market" as trade deadline approaches #stlcards #mlb
"I think it’s a slow-moving market in the sense that clubs are trying to optimize their assets as best they can," Mozeliak said Sunday evening at Turner Field. "There aren’t many teams that are actually trying to move players. When you have so many clubs that are competitive they have to do a lot of due diligence to weigh what’s best. Clearly the asks have been high.
"I think the CBA has a lot of ramifications on why," he continued. "Clearly having more teams alive right now or believing they are competitive makes it more difficult for the trading market. Clearly teams are trying to secure their younger talent. That's just the way the game is going. Seeing players moved to be moved is somewhat archaic."
