Which we hear every year for the last twenty with this organization and few stars other than Pujols panned out, and he was not actually a high pick OR high risk
This team is still NOT a serious WS contender as long as both Bader and TO are in the OF on a regular basis. RAISE THE (Ef'En) BAR, MOron!!

Don't want him after the 2 errors in one inning, besides we already have DeJong

I was at the game tonight, they announced him to a nice ovation.

That was cool.

Dude has so many holes in his swing, is super raw and really far away.

Going to be a fun wait and see project. I can see him torching the lower minors and moving quickly, or being a guy who never makes it past High A. Lot's of risk, but easily could be a top 100 prospect in a year from now too.

Really? Prior to Flores taking over our drafting it seemed the Cardinals shied away from taking these players. We always took pitchers and high floor position players. So who exactly are you referring to?

People are ignoring that his kid could end up being a pitcher.

That's fine with me. If he has the arm he should be a pitcher.
