Cardinals in talks for Adam Lind

This morning Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reported that the Cardinals and the Brewers are in discussion for left handed hitting first baseman Adam Lind. Lind would be a nice addition for Cardinals since they are I need of more power. Adam Lind could be short term help not unless the Cardinals pick up his 2016 salary of $8,000,000 or a $500,000 buyout. Lind, who is nursing a bad back at the moment which isn’t thought to be serious, is hitting .285/.365/.500 on the year and is mashing righties. The Cards could use a lefty. And, really, any bat at all, as their offense has struggled of late. So what would it take to make this deal. I tend to think that a low level player could fit the bill to bring Lind to the Cardinals. With four more days till the trade deadline we shall find out if its Adam Lind or Chris Davis.
