St. Louis Cardinals: Redbirds are equivalent to the Boston Red Sox
The St. Louis Cardinals have in their system a major powerhouse of a team in Memphis. These guys could likely go side-by-side with players in Boston.
In case you’ve lived under a rock, the St. Louis Cardinals have one of the best teams in all of minor league baseball in the Memphis Redbirds. Equally, if you aren’t a follower of the American League then you likely didn’t know how outstanding the Boston Red Sox are this season.
Memphis has taken a sizeable lead in the PCL by winning and winning and winning. These games won have come from young players. These include the likes of Dakota Hudson, Austin Gomber, Oscar Mercado, and Carson Kelly.
Memphis currently owns a lead in their division of 11.5 games with a record of 71-44. Wouldn’t this be nice to have/see in St. Louis in the St. Louis Cardinals lineup?
In the American League, the Boston Red Sox have one of the best teams in the AL-East, if not the tops of the American League. Their young guns (and some veteran presence) have lead themselves to the top of their division.
The Red Sox are leading the AL-East by a commanding nine games. The Yankees trail the Sox and would otherwise be leading any other division in baseball themselves if not for the first-place Red Sox.
Where the Redbirds have a weaker difference of opposing talent faced, the Red Sox are running a race with other gold-caliber clubs. Nevertheless, when placed side-by-side, the St. Louis Cardinals prospects hold their own with their American League counterparts.
