Cardinals hope Goldschmidt can lead them back to playoffs

ST. LOUIS (AP) — After missing postseason play for the past three seasons, the St. Louis Cardinals believe they’ve struck gold with Paul Goldschmidt in their quest to play into October.

“We knew we just couldn’t have a stagnant offseason. We knew we had to make some changes to our club because we felt like even though we had a good team last year, we still weren’t good enough,” said John Mozeliak, the team’s president of baseball operations.


“We looked at all the different options that might be out there, whether it be the free-agent market or what our trade options might look like. We felt that Paul checked so many boxes for us that it made sense,” he said.

So, which fanbase will be more insufferable about the Cardinals making it into the playoffs, their own or that of the Cubs?

He got Brewers playoff tickets in the mail that didn’t belong to him. What he did with them results in felony theft charge.

WAUKESHA - The sale of ill-gotten, high-priced tickets to a Brewers playoff game could cost a local man his freedom, if the courts ultimately confirm he was caught stealing.

Eddie Patlan, 34, of Waukesha is accused of selling 2018 Milwaukee Brewers playoff tickets valued at nearly $7,000 after he mistakenly received them in the mail at his residence.

Patlan faces one felony count of theft of movable property worth between $5,000 and $10,000, which carries a maximum sentence of six years in prison and a $10,000 fine, if he is convicted.
