The Cardinals are passing up a historic opportunity to sign one of two young generational talents currently available on the free agent market. Despite missing the playoffs three consecutive years and a projected payroll for 2019 well below the last few years' totals, and heedless of the depressed markets for Harper and Machado that have unfolded, the team has publicly stated through Mozeliak that it is not interested in acquiring either player, apparently at any price. This is unacceptable. Cardinals fans expect the team to contend, and acquiring either player at a reasonable price would be a boon, not a "problem" as Mozeliak implied. The team should make a good-faith effort to take advantage of the slow market for the duo, culminating in a signing that will mark the end of the Cardinals' recent competitive slide and ensure the future competitiveness of the team.
