St. Louis Cardinals: Ideal Trade Scenarios in the 2013-14 Offseason

The St. Louis Cardinals are looking for that one big offseason move that will define their 2014 season.

Most likely, it will involve snatching up a shortstop through a trade or free agency—a search that general manager John Mozeliak saw coming, according to Derrick Goold of the Post-Dispatch

Focusing on the trade possibilities alone, let's brainstorm some "ideal" situations. Now, take the word "ideal" with a grain of salt because let's face it—a truly ideal trade would involve the Rockies handing over superstar Troy Tulowitzki for a 12-pack of Coors Light. But these scenarios aren't going to be 100 percent realistic either.

For purposes here, think about a realistic trade possibility and then tweak it a bit to make it more pleasing to Mozeliak's eye.

Without further ado, let's have some fun with the Cardinals hot stove!
