    I had previously wondered if Gorman was one of those LH pull hitters that would be vulnerable to the shift when he gets to MLB. Glad to see that opo homer.

    Pitching up and down the system has been scary so far.

    Yep. The Cards have not drafted much pitching for some time and it’s now catching up to them. Hence the dire need to make the Liberatore trade.

    So has the hitting with only a few exceptions. I’m glad it’s very early.

    I’m worried about the lack of quality pitching in the minor league depths. This first week has been brutal.

    I liked the trades, but we’re going to miss guys like Gallen, Alcantara, Gomber,
    Marco, Locey, etc.

    How much did last year’s layoff or reduced schedule affect hitting and pitching here in the early going? I guess we would have to compare results of our guys against the other organizations. They had a layoff too.

    To your point blingboy, the Cards were one of two organizations that didn’t participate in fall league. I was wondering earlier if that might be a bit of a factor.

    It’s early, but I don’t think Memphis is going to be very good this year. I’m looking to see how they do next against a cooler, non Durham team. The baseball must look like a watermelon to that team. Surely their pitching will get better.

    Any additional postponements are welcomed about now.

    Durham is a very good team. Besides that, I’m not sure how good any of the teams our affiliates have played are. Still, having to find a way to avoid a 6 game sweep at home is a shameful start. I do think the lack of camp played a role.

    Are you saying Memphis did not have a camp and Durham did?

    No, last fall’s camp. The Cards and Yankees were the only two teams to skip theirs. The Yankees teams seem to be doing fine, so maybe it’s just lack of talent but who knows.
