Alexander “The Great” was stellar yet once again, but not quite his spectacular self, in last night’s 2-0 loss to Charlotte. Alexander went 7 innings strong, yielding 2 runs on 4 hits. The Bobbsey Twins (Nunez & Torres) went a combined 3-7 in Peoria’s triumph…….all 3 ringing singles.
The #stlcards system was 1-3 on Friday. Our Player of the Day is Peoria left fielder Leandro Cedeño, who went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, and two RBI in the Chiefs victory over Cedar Rapids.

When you look at the massive amount of position player talent assembled in Peoria (Gorman, Herrera, Cedeno, Nunez, Torres, and even Perez) it gives us hope that within 3-4 years we will have a young core in St. Louis that can go head to head with the Cubs. Not all of them may pan out but there is plenty to be hopeful about. The hard part is having to wait.
I think using the cubs as an example of where we want to be in 3-4 years is setting the bar just out of reach of a swarm of fire ants, Scotty. Well maybe they are a little better than that, but they are not that special of a team either…..and I think they will prove that this year. I would love to be where Houston is at. Kudos to the Astro brass!
I am not sure what you mean Pugs. The standings tell the tale. The Cubs pitching is questionable but their position player core is basically the same they had in 2016 and still as potent. I look forward to having a core like that. We have too many guys on the wrong side of 30.
