The Cardinals’ release of veteran non-roster invitees Alex Cora and Koyie Hill on Sunday wasn’t the type of transaction that jumps off the computer screen at you, but it was another signal of how the organization has changed in recent years.

What was initially described as an open competition has now become a two-man fight to see who locks up second base for the Cardinals.

Prospect ranking season continues leading up to the start of Spring Training, and today’s ranking of the Cardinals’ organization comes from former (and hopefully again, soon) PH8 Podcast guest, Baseball Prospectus’ Kevin Goldstein.

Forgive me my Matt Adams fascination and obsession. Can’t get enough of the Cards prospect slugger. Looking forward to seeing what he can do in Memphis. There’s no new information or breaking news here, but it happened so I thought you’d like to see it. As such, here is more Matt Adams video from the [...]

Matt Adams was the first subjected to the media room this morning, and he addressed moving forward into 2012 building on his successful 2011 campaign. Adams said he obviously hopes to start the season with the big club, making the team out of camp, but understands there are plenty ahead of him and Memphis is [...]
