For the 11th consecutive year, we are rolling out The Cardinal Nation’s choices as the top players at each level of the St. Louis Cardinals system from the summer, following season recaps by affiliate. The series runs each day from September 12 through the month of October.
As we have done each fall over a decade, the staff of The Cardinal Nation starts our series with a look back the just-completed season at each level of the St. Louis Cardinals system, including the major league club. We will also crown three award winners for each team, The Cardinal Nation/Scout.com Minor League Starters, Relievers and Players of the Year.
We are unveiling our selections, one team recap or award per day, every day, beginning on Monday, September 12, and continuing throughout the month of October. Club recaps are first, then the Dominican Summer League (DSL) Reliever of the Year and all the way through the Memphis Redbirds Player of the Year.
Some special awards will be added and of course, our top selections for the entire Cardinals minor league system for 2016 as well as the best-performing rookies follow. The minor league section of the series will conclude with our choice as the top manager in the organization before we break down the big-league club’s top players and regular season and post-season results.
Who will unseat Allen Cordoba as Player of the Year or will the talented shortstop repeat?
