Phils, Cards Talked Early Morning Trade

Welcome to Day 2 of the Winter Meetings.

Gerry Fraley of FOX Sports writes the Cardinals and Phillies indulged in some trade talks around 2:30 a.m. Supposedly Rick Ankiel was dangled to Atlanta, but the Phils were probably more interested in Ryan Ludwick:

Ryan Ludwick would be the best fit for the Phillies, but the Phils might not want to break up their bullpen and the Cardinals would want a top-flight reliever in return.

That tells me a main cog in a deal with the Cardinals would have to be Ryan Madson.
