Where would the St. Louis Cardinals’ 2014 draftees rank amongst our top prospect list?

After each year’s draft, the question comes up, ‘Where would (insert current drafted player) place in the team’s top prospect ranking?” Fans want to know how the newbees of the organization stack up with the players that are already there.

Why the St. Louis Cardinals need to keep stockpiling arms

The Cardinals farm system has improved by leaps and bounds since the days when the best pitchers it was producing were Bud Smith and Anthony Reyes.  This was especially evident last year when the big club rolled out arm after arm to fill the void left by injured players on the staff during the regular season and leaned on the baby birds in the bullpen during the postseason.  That...

Ranking the top St. Louis Cardinals prospects 16-20

As we work our way into the teens, we start to see more experienced players. When it comes to experience versus potential, I have a hard time going away from experience. For younger guys, the risk is much higher and I am not one to take that risk. With that said, the player with the biggest upside on this list is Jones, but he has the least amount of experience. He was very impressive...

Six Cardinals pitchers who hope to make a strong impression this spring

ST. LOUIS -- After the big-name Cardinals have headed for the golf course and fans at Roger Dean Stadium have had their fill of sunshine for one afternoon, a few innings usually remain in that afternoon's exhibition.

5 Cardinals minor league players who will rebound in 2014

What defines a bounce back season? For me, there are a couple of definitions. First, a player who struggled the previous year and did not live up to expectations. Second, you have those players who may have been injured for a good part of the year and again, failed to live up to expectations.

Ranking the top 10 relievers in the St. Louis Cardinals organization

The Cardinals’ bullpen and relievers in the system have been transformed the last few years. It appears the organization has put an emphasis on hard throwers. This is evident by the team moving position players to the mound like Sam Tuivailala, Fernando Baez, and Robert Stock just to name a few.
