PLAYERS: Oscar Taveras
Who’s on first, what’s on second, minor league guy’s on third. This delightful screencap comes from Saturday’s broadcast of the Cards spring training game against the Mets. Seems as if St. Louis is going to great lengths to keep the identity of this prospect under wraps, referring to him only as “minor league guy.”  Not a very flashy nom de plume but it gets the job done. In reality the player standing on third is Oscar Taveras, the Cardinals second ranked minor league prospect, and I can guarantee the real story of his life is nowhere near as fascinating as Deadspin’s intricately woven tale of Taveras’ backstory.  Fictional or not, it’s a hell of a good read. Oscar “minor league guy”  Taveras—No.91 on your scorecard, No.1 in your hearts. [via 30FPS.Mocksession]
