The St. Louis Cardinals have recently received numerous accolades for the outstanding minor league system general manager John Mozeliak and his team have been able to build. The Cardinals have the best minor league system in all of baseball according to Baseball America and even Keith Law of ESPN.com and the future of Cardinals' baseball is very bright.

Each year I like to compile a composite prospect list,
taking the top prospects lists from across the web, assigning points to
each ranking and then using these points to create a composite ranking.
I do this each February for the top 100 prospects in baseball, which
can be found at my MLB Composite Prospect Index site and I also do it for each team, including my favorite,...
Every year, at this point in the baseball season, you start hearing a number of fans worrying because their favorite baseball team is losing most of its spring training games.
These reactions are inevitably followed by many others crying out that spring training games are completely useless as a predictor of regular season records.
I decided to examine whether teams’ spring training...
It’s no secret the St. Louis Cardinals are possibly the deepest team in baseball. From the big leagues down to rookie ball—there is no franchise more loaded than the redbirds going into 2013 and many other reputable baseball publishers agree. Which is why many experts are pegging the Cardinals to make their third straight … Continue reading »
JUPITER, Fla. Matt Carpenter wasn't sure how to react when he moved from second base back over to first base for the final few innings of Sunday's spring training game.
Carpenter has concentrated so hard on learning to play second base this spring that playing his more normal spot of first base almost seemed too easy.
"It's funny," Carpenter said. "...
JUPITER, Fla. Jon Jay has a message for the folks already anointing Cardinals prospect Oscar Taveras as the next Mike Trout or Bryce Harper.
"Let the kid play," Jay said Monday. "Thats my biggest thing. Let the kid play and whatever comes of it, comes. He definitely does have a great talent and you can see that, but I hate when they try to label someone as the next...
In a spring training that has included worries about contract negotiations and the health of starting pitchers, the stability of a right elbow ligament for a position player could be the St. Louis Cardinals’ biggest problem as games get underway.
Shortstop Rafael Furcal received an anti-inflammatory shot in his injured elbow Friday to help ease discomfort created by a bone spur...
Adam Wainwright made his first “start” in what could be a year full of both starts and stops. Of course he’s still over a month away from his first meaningful appearance of the year, but these days, not much he says or does is without meaning.
With the high stakes nature of his ongoing contract negotiations hanging over his 6’7” frame, the comparison machine is going crazy...
In several recent tweets, ESPN’s Buster Olney was sharing the thoughts of a talent evaluator offering his opinions as to why Kyle Lohse is still unsigned. The following quote comes from the evaluator with the conclusion apparently Olney’s.
“When’s the last time you saw a pitcher leave St. Louis and do well elsewhere?” The Dave Duncan effect.
With the recent announcement...
Prices for half of the games start at just $5.

Ben and Sam preview the Cardinals` season with Ken Funck, and Pete talks to St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports columnist Joe Strauss (at 18:06).
Coming off a season where the St. Louis Cardinals were just one game away from returning to the World Series for the second year in a row, many fans were interested to see what kind of approach general manager John Mozeliak would take during the offseason.
Last winter, Mozeliak watched manager Tony La Russa and Dave Duncan retire and let Albert Pujols go to the Los Angeles Angels...
The Miami Marlins will lose backup catcher Jeff Mathis for at least six weeks. The Marlins were taking on the St. Louis Cardinals in a grapefruit league spring training contest when Cardinals Matt Holliday fouled off a ball that came around and struck Mathis on his right clavicle. The injury now leaves the Marlins thin at catcher. Mathis was the only other catcher on the teams spring...
