The cardinals trade SP Zack Greinke and 3B Martin Prado to the red sox for C Yadier Molina, CF/IF Emilio Bonifacio and MILB specs Robert Stepheson and Larry Greene. as a reminder the red sox do get greinke and prado at a nice rate this year as the money i traded for follows the players so this helps red sox get some nice pair of players while maintaining their CAP this year and even saving a few mil along the way. The cards get a nice catcher in molina as it never hurts to have 2 nice catchers and gets a very versatile eligibility deep guy in bonifacio who will help with the speed department the team is somewhat lacking. Also stephenson and greene are 2 future stars in my opinion.

of course tho bonifacio is only cf eligible to start the season but loosk to be playing 2b this year so in time his elgibity kicks in other places and thus can be used in the separate OF and IF slots as well..will fit in most anywhere...plus gives me a cf eligible guy tostart season until we see the situations of bourjos and eaton to start the season
