A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on which Cardinals’ position players made sense to trade, without actually knowing their trade value. I had to assume if their trade value was greater or worse than what it should be, in addition to having to guess if getting traded, for whatever they could return, would make the 2024 team worse and by how much. I’m going to do something similar today.

There are a good number of starting pitchers on the market. Here’s what’s difficult: we don’t know what the SP market looks like. We don’t know which starters will be highly desired and which won’t.
