Monday Poll: What has been John Mozeliak’s best trade for the Cardinals?

We are going to change things up a bit with this week’s poll question. I feel like my poll questions have been snake bit alittle lately as my question last week dealt with right field and a few hours later the Cardinals traded for Jason Heyward.
