Rumours of Hardy and prospects to St. Louis for Freese and Lynn/Miller (depending on prospects). Not sure how much traction it has, but good deal for both sides.
Unless you're the Cardinals and the deal includes Miller.
Only "rumor" I heard was that the Cardinals asked O's brass about Hardy for Lynn, Duquette said he'd only do it for Miller, and the Cards laughed and hung up the phone. Doesn't make sense for both sides at all - Orioles don't have an in-house replacement for Hardy (they could move Machado to SS, but then they don't have a 3B, so the problem isn't really fixed). It makes far more sense for the Rockies, who probably aren't playoff contenders next year and can play some glove-only guy at short, or Rangers, who have two potential starters at SS, to trade a guy to the Cardinals than it does for Baltimore.
