The start of each month is an especially busy time at The Cardinal Nation. Among the features are the St. Louis Cardinals minor league notebooks, which cover a different affiliate seven days a week all season long and are written by local affiliates.
The schedule and authors follow.
Monday: Gulf Coast League Cardinals Notebook – by Paul Ivice
Tuesday: Peoria Chiefs Notebook – by Garth Shanklin
Wednesday: Palm Beach Cardinals Notebook – by Juan Dorado
Thursday: Springfield Cardinals Notebook – by Derek Shore
Friday: Memphis Redbirds Notebook – by Austin Reynolds
Saturday: State College Spikes Notebook – by Robert Davidson

Leonda Markee’s Daily Notebooks run each and every morning all season long, recapping all the minor league games from the night before. They include top performances, box score links, upcoming matchups and more.
The above Notebooks are for The Cardinal Nation subscribers.
Special at the start of each month and free for all are the top starting pitcher, relief pitcher and position player from across the system during the prior month. Selections are made based on statistical comparisons and honorable mentions are recognized.
Following those four features will be our monthly Cardinals top 40 prospect list, provided with supporting logic and changes from the previous month noted. The July list will incorporate the Cardinals 2014 draft class for the first time. It is also subscriber-only, but worth it!
