Memphis Roster:

Albuquerque Roster:

Any takes on players I should keep an eye on? Also, anyone want reports on specific players you might have on your reserve rosters? Been very busy and haven't had a chance to scout the Minors much....Not sure who the SPs are yet....

Is the catcher Molina related to the 2 Molina brothers currently catching for Anaheim?

yes he is. he is mostly known as a defensive catcher but is starting to improve with the bat although he wont be anything special as a hitter.

i would love a scouting report on wainwright or whoever is going to be starting.

as far as the memphis roster goes, wainwright and haren have the most potential for big league success. haren is probably the safest bet for a call up should any of the stl starters falter.

kiko calero will probably be called up before long. he was great as a reliever last year before getting injured. i think they are letting him start in memphis but i would have put him on the roster before jason simontacci. kiko strikes out batters at a good rate but has had some problems with walks. he will probably be in the bullpen on the big league roster but if carpenter/woody and the rest keep having problems you never know.

jason ryan put up great numbers last year but is considered too old to be a true prospect. he is also a candidate for some spot starts for the big league club and could end up pulling a jason simontacci.

jimmy journell was once a top prospect but his stock has dropped a lot. he supposedly has the stuff be a closer or good set up man but really hasnt shown too much lately. the cards seem to like their bullpen so he probably wont have an impact in the bigs this year. he also starting to get a little old to be in the minors.

doug creek is a lefty reliever and is doing pretty solid post surgery. since the cards have kline and king on the left side he is probably just going to be trade bait.

molina should eventually take over for matheny but that wont happen this year.

i dont think any of the other guys are really worth keeping an eye on.

well unfortunatelt the cards have probably the wrost minor league system in baseball so the answer to the cards question is an emphatic no.

But as for the Marlins I'm not sure if he's at AAA yet but Jeremy Hermida is the best hitter in their system and should make his MLB debut by 2006. That will be some tandem with him and Miggy Cabrera. Watch ABraham Nunez of course unless he's with the big club. on the pitching side, Phil Akens, Trevor Hutchinson Tommy Phelps are all watchable.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
