Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Talking Cardinals Prospects on KFNS

Cusamano-Press-Box-200On Tuesday morning, I joined acting hosts Brenden Schaeffer and Brian Hoffman, who were covering for Frank Cusumano on his morning show, The Press Box, on St. Louis’ KFNS 590 The Fan.

We discussed the performances of multiple Cardinals minor leaguers and when we might see them in St. Louis, how long until Tyler Lyons is brought back from his rehab assignment, what the Cardinals might do with Adam Wainwright if his struggles continue.

You can listen to The Press Box weekdays from 10 a.m. to noon on KFNS and

    Cards fans and their pandering columnists are preening crybabies. Bernie is sobbing because the team is .500. Hey that’s pretty good in this division. Diaz is a pretty good hitter and mo and Moises were smart to snag him.

    The cardinals are not promised a winning team each year. It’s a war out there.

    Mona Lisa was not a blonde. So what Bernie?

    So there are reasons to see the cup as at least half full.

    Leake illustrates year two after signing a big contract can be better.
    Lance Lynn has been very good
    Wacha too. And Martinez.
    Importantly Rosenthal has shown good control, still has great stuff, but is not being overworked.
    Wainwright knows how to compete.
    The pitching staff looks good despite tough loss of Reyes.

    The hitting is improving. If Wong grows up, that will be helpful.
    Gyorko is a very good hitter.
    Fowler needs to relax. He will in time.
    Grichuk has potential. Better him in LF than Matt Holliday.
    Diaz is a good hitter as shown last year.
    Carpenter is an on base machine.

    It is a tough division, but the roster is pretty good. Not good enough to overtake the powerhouse Cubs, but to compete fir a wild card. Injuries may impact on where the birds place.

    Another source of optimism are some useful pieces at Memphis.
    On the mound, Arturo Reyes, poncedeleon, and Weaver.
    Pham is a good hitter when healthy. Carson Kelly is getting valuable AAA training, as are others. Voit is able to step up in the event of an injury in the majors.
    Overall depth is pretty good, even if there are not famous marquee stars like pujols or Beltran or Holliday.
