Hi Colby,

I was thrilled when the Cardinals drafted you in the first round and thanks for answering our questions!

1. Was it humbling for you to enter the minors after batting .484 and breaking Bo Jackson's HS HR record in Alabama?

2. Have you been asked to make some changes in your hitting or fielding approach since turning professional and if so, what were they?

What's up Colby.

I was wondering what happened early on this season: You started out badly, but have since been pretty much tearing it up. Are you a slow starter not used to these long seasons, or was it just a cold streak that should be viewed as an aberration from your normal performance?

Hey Colby,

1) Who is the toughest pitcher you've had to face?
2) What is the toughest aspect to playing outfield?

Thanks for being here Colby!

What is the part of your game that you're most proud of/satisfied with?

What part do you feel you need to work on the most?

Thanks for taking our questions Colby.

Player development has listed you as a 5-tool CFer. What part of your game needs the most work before you feel you can live up to those expectations?

Do you have any good heckler stories?

Thanks for your time, Colby!

1. Who do you idolize while growing up?
2. Do you watch big league players on TV to learn? Has it helped you?
3. Do you feel extra pressure on being considered as a top prospect?

Thanks for chatting with us! I've followed you since you were drafted and have high hopes for you. I look forward to seeing you up in St. Louis in a couple years.

1. What one player in the majors (past or present) best matches your style of play, your swing, and your defense?

2. Have you been given any kind of timetable for promotion, or do you think you'll be with the Swing all season?

3. What are your biggest goals for this season?

Thanks again, and keep up the great play!

Hey Colby -

Just checked out your team's website and my first question for you is how many balls have you launched into the Mississippi? Any kayaks out there awaiting your ABs?

Best wishes for your career. Hope to see you score a lot of runs ahead of Pujols in the future!
