QUESTION: How long do the Cardinals wait on a Stanton decision?

GOOLD: They're measuring this by the calendar, not stopwatch. No one expects this to linger, though, into the holidays and forever. There's a general sense that all parties are moving toward a decision. The Cardinals have not been told any timetable, nor have they imposed any deadline, not when I last checked (Sunday night).

Also, Stanton is worth the wait as long as there is a real possibility that he can say yes.

Follow-up: Do you think the activity will skyrocket once Stanton makes his decision?

GOOLD: I think the wave is about to gain speed, yes. Especially now that so many teams have been told they're not in the Ohtani race anymore.
