St. Louis Cardinals Organization Discussion

Mike Matheny and John Mozeliak - Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE

I am now working on the New York Yankees prospect list. The next team in line is the St. Louis Cardinals, to be followed by the Chicago White Sox, Washington Nationals, Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, and Tampa Bay Rays.

Use this thread to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals farm system. Some possible points of discussion for your consideration:

***The Cardinals system has been very productive, and there is more on the way up with Oscar Taveras, Shelby Miller, Trevor Rosenthal, Kolten Wong, and possibly Carlos Martinez all ready to contribute very soon. They have pitching, they have hitting. But no system is perfect. What do you see as the main weakness in the system? What would you do to address this weakness?

**Former VP of Scouting and Player Development Jeff Luhnow was responsible for much of the organization's productivity, but he's off trying to rebuild the Astros now. How do you think successor Dan Kantrovitz has done? What do you think of the 2012 draft class? Did the philosophy change?

**Which recent farm products would you make a long-term commitment to? Allen Craig? Lance Lynn?

**The Cardinals have done a good job identifying and developing sleeper prospects like Craig or Matt Carpenter into useful assets. Which sleeper prospects might follow in their footsteps?
