It’s crunch time. The final week before the one-and-only, July 31st trade deadline. The old August waiver trades no longer provide a backdoor “we could still do something” excuse for not being aggressive in July’s final days. 2019 matters, or so they said. Now is the time to prove it. The given roster has done [...]

The Cardinals Won HOW?
