Short Post

Short post today.  I was at the Cards’ game last night and what another terrible performance.  To make matter worse, Wells is pitching tonight.

Two Cardinals’ farm hands made the BA Prospect Hotsheet for stellar play and one for his recent struggles.  From BA:

15.  Bryan Anderson

The Cardinals push their players aggressively, and the 20-year-old Anderson, a fourth-round pick in 2005, already has reached the Texas League. While it would be impressive if he were just holding his own, Anderson hit .579 last week and is now hitting .315/.383/.438 on the year.

19. Tyler Herron

Herron, a supplemental first-round pick in 2005, picked up a save in his only appearance this week, but it’s his work in the June that caught our attention. With 3-0, 0.53 numbers–with 21 strikeouts and just one measly walk–Herron’s ERA has been bettered only by Kershaw among Midwest League pitchers in June.

And on the Not-So-Hot Watch

Colby Rasmus

While his fellow 20-year-old teammate Bryan Anderson is raking, Rasmus is cooling off as the weather heats up. He’s hit .100 (4-for-40) over the past 10 games with 12 strikeouts.

Joe Mather’s hot start has earned him a promotion to Triple A to replace Skip who was promoted to replace the disabled Jim Edmonds.  Troy Cate was brought up to replace Braden Looper.  Is it good for a team to have both a Skip and a Kip?

Short season baseball starts tonight.  Here is an article about JC’s exhibition tune-up on Sunday.

    like a friend of mine suggested…why don’t they bring up someone like Ankiel to the rotation and put some fire in the lineup????

  2. You mean in the lineup… Ankiel needs to play everyday and he would not get that opportunity in STL. Plus with his fragile psyche, you want to do everything you can to boost his confidence.

    I wonder if perhaps they’re letting Ankiel tear the cover off of the ball at Memphis to use him as trade bait later.
