Strange that the write-up of the blue team barely had a mention of Darlin Moquete who was by far their best player.September 17, 2019 at 9:19 am #106504
Going into detail on the top individual players is not the primary focus of the team recaps. Upcoming are three in-depth articles that include the accomplishments of the top hitters, starting pitchers and relievers by each level.
As presented, the DSL Blue team review is already over 2,000 words.September 18, 2019 at 7:57 am #106643September 19, 2019 at 7:39 am #106838September 20, 2019 at 7:17 am #107096September 21, 2019 at 8:11 am #107515
The #stlcards' Double-A affiliate posted its second straight disappointing 60-80 record, but featured Texas League Player of the Year Dylan Carlson. @Sgf_Cardinals season recap by The Cardinal Nation local reporter @D_Shore23. https://t.co/SW4kBLiMNZ pic.twitter.com/QJhwfoK8i3

The Peoria Chiefs' 2019 season was a frustrating journey that included a 7th-place first half and a last-place finish after the break. Their overall .388 winning pct. (54-85) was the worst by a #stlcards Class-A affiliate in 37 years as pitching struggled. https://t.co/mXnflJUgNP pic.twitter.com/t2yID37g3l

The #stlcards high-A Palm Beach affiliate fell just short of a first-half title, but after a number of pitching promotions, struggled mightily after the break. In-depth @GoPBCardinals team review by TCN's Blake Newberry. (free) https://t.co/Ksi7yqKSmH pic.twitter.com/LuK9GeWKuX

2019 was a tale of two halves for the defending AAA National Champion Memphis Redbirds, 21 games under .500 on July 17, but finishing strongly to come in at 69-71 overall. Still, it was a major decline from the last two title seasons. In depth team recap. https://t.co/Uz07iAi9ju pic.twitter.com/6J0zrv0hcz

At this point its nearly impossible to speculate what the Memphis roster will look like come 2020 opening day. AAA teams have players coming from both directions… down from St. Louis and up from AA Springfield. The bottleneck of players in our organization’s AAA team roster will also include eight ILed players on the current Memphis roster, which is at 29, including the eight on IL.
There will be transactions and releases to get the Redbirds roster where it needs to be. The Cardinals active roster is at 35, and there will be some Card’s players returning to active status in ’20.
There are so many decisions to be made and they will be made during next season’s spring training.September 24, 2019 at 8:15 pm #108239
Those roster projections will also affect how many minor league free agents they go after this winter and at which positions. Of course, others are eligible to leave. Working on an article looking at that.September 25, 2019 at 7:54 am #108421
In TCN's annual #stlcards minor league season recaps, we have completed team reviews and move to player awards, starting with the DSL Red Relief Pitcher of the Year, given to a first-year hurler, Luis Garcia ($). https://t.co/YA5GGIcyCf pic.twitter.com/XZ70g2YsVl

In an unusual set of circumstances, our 2018 #stlcards Gulf Coast League Starting Pitcher of the Year, 23-year old RH Connor Coward, returned to the rookie-level league for a second season and became the top reliever on the disappointing 2019 club.

No love for William Miranda on DSL Blue? Not even HM?
Sorry for the delay in replying. I’m neck deep in the Starter of the Year articles.
Miranda made my short list but not the final cut. There were 10 relievers qualifying for Reliever of the Year. Of the 7 categories I looked at, Miranda ranked 2nd in two categories, fifth in one and sixth in four. That just didn’t cut it for me.October 2, 2019 at 7:38 am #109690
TCN's top relief pitcher at AA Springfield, Kodi Whitley, started 2019 at Palm Beach. The right-hander is now refining his game in the Arizona Fall League and may enter the #stlcards mix in 2020. @D_Shore23 reports. ($) https://t.co/ni6XY3RbcW pic.twitter.com/cnOhzyG5cc
