In light of fan frustration with the recent St. Louis Cardinals mediocrity, it might do us all good to ride the Memphis shuttle and examine the players there for glimmers of hope.
The St. Louis Cardinals, facing injuries and such, have- of late- been nothing short of mediocre. Steven published a piece last night discussing another round of mediocrity witnessed in the recent contest against the Brewers– a team the St. Louis Cardinals should defeat.
As we all brace for a severely cold winter (in the middle of the summer) that our St. Louis Cardinals find themselves entrenched in thanks to injuries to Matt Carpenter, Jhonny Peralta, Brandon Moss, Brayan Pena, etc., we must find places where hope exists.
In following this thinking then, let us turn our attention to the Memphis Redbirds in hopes of finding shining lights of promise. Might there be players in Memphis who could spell relief? Might the St. Louis Cardinals benefit better should they decide to redefine this year as a rebuilding year due to promises in Memphis and therefore become sellers at the deadline?
Let’s jump right to it and see what might be laying in wait for the chance to impact a team so desperately in need of impact.
