St. Louis Cardinals Organization Discussion

Carlos Martinez - Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

I am now working on the Detroit Tigers prospect list. The next team in line is the St. Louis Cardinals, to be followed by the Oakland Athletics, Philadelphia Phillies, Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies, Seattle Mariners, and Washington Nationals.


Use this thread to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals farm system. Some potential points of discussion could include:

***The team that won 97 games and the National League pennant was almost entirely home-grown. How many games do you expect they will win in 2014?

***Despite big league graduations, the Cardinals system still looks to be in good condition. What do you see as the biggest weakness in the system and what would you do to improve it?

***The Cards have gotten good results with guys like Matt Carpenter and Allen Craig,college players who didn't have mind-bending tools but who turned into excellent big leaguers. Do you see any more Carpenters or Craigs in the organization currently?

***As always, feel free to discuss sleepers or anything else Cardinal related in this thread.
