Yes, I said that solely to rile y'all up.
The Orioles and Cardinals had trade talks revolving around Shelby Miller and J.J. Hardy, but the Cardinals told Baltimore there's no deal to be made, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. Some have speculated that the Cards could consider trading Miller this winter despite his brilliant rookie season. However, there was no indication that St. Louis is thinking that way in this exchange.
Hardy is coming off of a season in which he hit .263/.306/.433 while belting 25 home runs. Of course, the Cardinals are aggressively pursuing an upgrade at the shortstop position, but this deal wasn't up their alley.
While the Cardinals believe in keeping an open mind to all opportunities, many at the GM Meetings are wondering why they would even think about trading the right-hander, Heyman writes. The Cards have recieved many inquiries about their wealth of young pitchers over the last couple of days.

I mean, that's really good for a SS, but his slash line is merely adequate. .306 OBP is very uninspiring. If he was a .350 OBP guy and a couple of years young, I probably would be interested.
I know it's probably a longshot, but I'm still holding out hope for Tulo. Just depends on how much they want though. I heard Miller/Adams/Jenkins mentioned at first, and I would do that in a heartbeat. Now I'm hearing they want Rosenthal as well. I think that's too much.
