ST. LOUIS • With fanfare last reserved for a byte center fielder, the cardinals wanted to rewrite and upload the top of their show, officials introduced Friday the thunder packed first basseman they know will revive in the middle of the order and give them back to October.

Paul Goldschmidt presented his No. 46 shirt by Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. and President John Mozeliak during a press conference held Friday morning at Busch Stadium.

“Cardinals have had some impressive first basemen over the years, Says DeWitt, and then listed a group of Hall of Famers and MVPs ranging from Mize to Musial, McGwire to Pujols.” Paul is a perfect fit for our club. We felt we were so close to the playoff that an extra player could put us over the top. … It’s an exciting day. “

Goldschmidt said about the list of the first bases:” With this organization you can say it about every position. “

Allow Mozeliak,” Of course, a very exciting time. Many of you will ask the question, why Paul Goldschmidt? Simply, we recognize the importance of 201

9. The most interesting thing about Mr. Goldschmidt was that we could not find anything negative about him. Nothing. When you think about St. Louis Cardinals, he only seems like the perfect fit. It says 2019 things and it improves our club immediately. “

Mozeliak continued that the team will make sure to add a lefty to the bullpen, a stapled bats to the bench and a backup catcher.

” I don & # 39; I do not know a player in baseball who does not want to play here, says Goldschmidt. “There are organizations known for greatness, and it’s here… You knew this was an opportunity. It made me and my family excited.”

Goldschmidt said that he spoke with Daniel Descalso and Jon Jay about Cardinals and that he also talked to Tony La Russa and Dave McKay after the trade to get a feel of Cardinal’s organization

“All texts and phone calls I received,” You’ll love it, “continued Goldschmidt.

Mozeliak also heard from the current Cardinals player, including a text message from other basseman Kolten Wong who wanted opposing team “Good luck” to get a goalkeeper through the right side of the infield. Mozeliak recalled the text message as his favorite when he listed the various messages of enthusiasm as he received.

The six-time All-Star refused to discuss in detail whether he would like to talk about the extension or timing of such conversations. His preference he denounced rade is to keep such things private.

Goldschmidt said he chose No. 46 because it was closest to his No. 44, which was available. He said he never asked for a number in his career, and he only had No. 44 because it hung in his closet. Luke Gregerson has No. 44 in Cardinal clubhouse, and Goldschmidt made the point he never asked for, so Gregerson never had the chance to give it up.

Cardinals attempted to talk Goldschmidt to a lower number, evenly
