He joined our Chris Hrabe after the trade announcement, Wednesday and gave Goldschmidt just about the best compliment you can give a player (especially if you're about to be a St. Louis Cardinals first baseman).
The Cardinals finished third in the National League Central last season, behind the Brewers and Cubs and ahead of the Pirates.

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. In his eight-year career, the right-handed hitter has batted.270/.387/.479 with eight home runs in 44 games against them. Goldschmidt has a $14.5 million salary next year, receives a $1 million assignment bonus for the trade and will be eligible for free agency after next season.
The Cardinals will introduce Goldschmidt at a news conference Friday in St. Louis.
