I just got through watching the Cardinal game this afternoon and was well please to see all of the young players who will be playing in Memphis this year at Triple A. The managment has done a great job in accumulating draft picks from other teams, using their own in building a organization for years to come with young talent.

Double A Springfield won the Texas League Championship last year and some of them will play here this season. The Texas League MVP and the Cards top prospect Taveras will be here along with the likes of other top prospects in Wong and Wacha. 

What else would anybody want to do thsi summer in having a few beers, eating barbecue, listening to the Blues, and watching young Birds developing into Cardinals down on the River.

It's great to see the player development that has taken place throughout the organization, isn't it? For all the good things that happened during the Jocketty years, player development was not one of them. Those core early 2000's Cardinal teams were made up almost entirely of guys acquired by trade, with Pujols being the only exception.

Nice to see how bright the future looks with that Memphis roster.
