As we enter the start of Spring Training 2014, I would like to take this time to wish each and everyone of you a Happy St. Louis Cardinals Pitchers and Catchers Day!
As the southeast and our friend, CardinalsFarm, gets pounded with yet another Winter Storm, please take some solace in that springtime is right around the corner. John has been in the process of ranking the Cardinals prospects from #40 to #1–so please take a look at what he has to say.
There are going to be so many questions for the St. Louis Cardinals that will be answered in the weeks to come.
The big two questions if Twitter is any indication
–Peter Bourjos vs. Jon Jay in the battle for center field.
–Oscar Taveras vs. Allen Craig vs. Matt Adams as the race heats up to see who plays first base and right field.
–Which minor league power arm stands out and just falls short of making the team? Last year at this time, a majority of fans had yet to really see Michael Wacha pitch until the Spring Training exhibition games started to air on television. It was at that point that many people started to think he would start the season with St. Louis rather than Memphis.
–Where do Carlos Martinez, Joe Kelly, and Lance Lynn fit with Jaime Garcia returning from injury?
–How healthy is Jason Motte?
With regards to Spring Training games, ESPN unveiled their list of games yesterday. A few Cardinals games were included in their listings:
