    If he has a good spring training will he start the season in St Louis?

    What did he hit, .281 in AA?

    He’d have to see some MAJOR improvement for him to be in St. Louis for opening day next year.

    It’s gonna be tough to beat out whatever expensive veteran that Mo overpays for this offseason. I mean, currently unknown player had a good season last year, although it was the best of his career, and he is unlikely to repeat it. Also, unknown player is making a lot of money, which has to give him first rights to the position.

    I stand corrected GameCard. My error.

    Maybe he could be someone good for us.

    Small sample size, however.

    Why do you think Mo is going to be unsuccessful in whatever he does?

    Carlson is a great bet to be at least an average starter in the outfield. He could be a star. That’s what the Cards could really use.

    As for his spring training chances…I see LF for sure and possibly CF as being up for grabs. So if he comes out hot, why couldn’t he make the opening day roster? I doubt Ozuna will be back and maybe not Fowler either.

    Between Carlson, O’Neill, Arozarena, Thomas, and Bader, our outfield should be covered.

    With the trade of 3 outfielders doesn’t help Carlsons odds to make the team? Also, no guarantee they are adding another outfielder. Dean should help minor league depth, but wouldn’t be much more than a platoon player. And more at bats in Spring Training for the outfielders.

    I wouldn’t underestimate Dean. IMHO he could become a starter.
    Good contact, decent power.

    You can add Tommy Edman…he should start in RF.

    Arozarena will be helping out Tampa, but add in Fowler and the OF should be about average. Edman will sub in at RF and CF, I’d imagine.

    Edman will not be a sub.

    It is not even April Fools day and some on other threads are talking of Carpenter playing left field. He would need that 26th man on the field to relay his throws.

    The only way Carlson starts the season in St Louis is to be incredibly hot in the Spring, and a couple of others go down with injuries.

    I would not count on Edman repeating last yhear’s performance. He was a nice story, but need to see what he can do longer term.

    The guy that intrigues me is “Tommy Lane” (my name for Lane Thomas). He has the look of a guy that can provide strong offense with decent defense. I hope they give him a lot of reps in the spring.

    Bader should be better than he has shown, I have little doubt O’Neill can carry a potent bat and drop the strikeout rate with regular playing time.

    Lots of potential, but it is a matter of one or two guys stepping up and fulfilling the promise. Who knows, maybe Williams will come out and leap a few guys and be sort of the Jose Martinez of the next couple of Cardinal teams.

    There seems to be a queue
    of young guys who will be given a shot at a starting OF position. At the front of the queue are Bader and O’Neill. Next in line is Thomas. Behind him are Williams and Dean. Carlson has the highest ceiling, but he probably needs to be at AAA for the first half before getting a real shot. For multiple reasons. For fill ins, Edman and even Ravelo or Capel may get some time out there during the long season.

    Im worried all this talk about Carlson is setting him up for disaster, just like BAder LAST year where his face was thrown around as the savior for the team and he fizzled…. or before that with Rasmus…where the whole future of the Cardinals was on his shoulders and he knew about it every day before he came up and then then he was here

    Star players can be helpful in other ways than just performance, they can allow for the light to shine on them allowing for the younger players TIME to acclimate without feeling they HAVE to be the answer to all the problems

    The best example is probably Reyes. But he still has some time for redemption.

    Jager – the same overhype happened with Taveras. Too much pressure on a young player.

    But at least he performed a bit in his little amount of time. And while he was the golden child he was only supposed to be solving the future not the present in that team

    Jags –

    Here’s how Taveras did at the major league level in 248 plate appearances after he was called up in 2014 –

    .239/.278/.312/.590

    Plus he was struggling a bit in the outfield.

    I have no problem with Carlson but I see a lot of people touting his numbers. but I seem to recall reading in the articles about the tampa trade, that arozarenas numbers as well as some others in the minors were skewed because of a live ball in the minors this year. so which is it. you cant use numbers one way for one player yet use them differently for another.
