Brian Walton has done an outstanding job for a long time. Not that Brian requires my approval but I really respect his work.

“I would like to thank Brian for his hard work that has helped make my job easier for so many years. His regular ‘Wednesday with Walton’ podcasts on ScoopswithDannyMac.com, his books and his own website, TheCardinalNation.com, are excellent sources of information.”

I'm often asked who to follow if Cardinals' prospects are your bag. I'd recommend:
First, @B_Walton and @D_Shore23 at The Cardinal Nation are a must. It's a mostly pay site, but it's worth it.
Also @mdthompFWFB & all of the @ProspectsLive guys
All quality people

Been following him since before there was a VEB, I believe, ~around 2004. Mr Walton offers grounded, informed opinions on our minor leagues, based on many years of observation. We are lucky to have him covering our birds. https://t.co/317P0psXyi

For anyone wanting an eyewitness testimony to Brian`s work and time he spends, I will give it now. There is nowhere else you will find out information on the entire Cardinals' system as you do here. I have subscribed for two or three years now. Worth every penny! Thank you BW!
