    Ozuna was on a 40 HR and 125 RBI pace as a 28 year old. He should be fine for the next few years.

    Combined salaries of Miller,
    Gregerson, Leone, and Cecil this year? $25,000,000. Ouch.

    Can anyone find a reason why Schlesenger should still be in the system.

    My uneducated guess is that they’ll take the best LH college pitcher available at #19.

    I saw Woodford at ST and he’s a mature pitcher for his age. Not quite a Flaherty, but fairly close.

    Looking forward to seeing how Cabrera progresses. High ceiling.

    Did Montero make the Memphis team?

    Hit 96 on the gun when I saw him, command has been better. He’s ready to contribute out of the bullpen.

    Mayers making a case for himself today….4 Ks in 2 innings.

    Drew Robinson looked good yesterday. Now seems to be making a case for himself.

    Was there. Hudson was very impressive. And Reyes looked good in his one inning. Flaherty, Reyes, and Hudson some day at the top of the rotation?

    Suggestion for surprise bull pen stud this season – Mayers.

    Two observations from the game today so far.

    1.) Gorman had better at bats against Scherzer than O’Neill.
    And Gorman was in high school 10 months ago.

    2.) Defensive liability or not, Martinez should be our every day RFer.

    Saw Gorman hit up close and personal this afternoon. Amazingly powerful swing. Great looking all around athlete.

    Arrived yesterday afternoon, and was able to get an hour or so in on the back fields. Saw Helsley,
    Cabrera, and Gallegos pitch and Montero bat and play 3B. Good start to the visit.

    Who’s going to be down there over the next week?

    I wouldn’t worry about Flaherty.
    He’s a horse and has looked great this Spring. Wacha has looked fine too. And Hudson has been coming on
    strong. Gant is steady Eddie. We should be okay.

    Last season I had to parking in the garage near the stadium (behind the shops) and walk all the way around inside the complex to get to the minor league fields. Not easy for someone who’s in line for a knee replacement. Why security? What’s wrong with parking in the area by the gate to get into the minor league complex? I don’t get it. It didn’t seem to create any problems in the past.

    Does anyone (who’s down there) know if the back gate off the divided street by the minor league complex is going to be open this year? So you can park back there? It was locked last year, which detracted from convenience. Also, if they are going to take down the netting behind the catchers where the pitchers warm up near the AAA field? That used to be s great viewing point.

    Do you know if the back gate (for parking) at the minor league complex is open?
    That was a pain when it was locked last year.

    Hope to see O’Neill and Gorman in the same lineup someday. That would be fun.

    Is it better to be a bigger strikeout guy, or continue to get grounders with that heavy 95mph sinker, and keep the pitch count down?

    I’ll be there from 3/14-3/18, Uncle Denny. Meet up on the back fields one morning? Maybe BW can join us.

    Hudson, if developed the proper way, could be an important part of the Cards for the next few years. A heavy, sinking 95mph fastball coupled with a high 97mph four seam in a devastating one two punch.

    Gallegos didn’t help his case today.
