Do you apply advanced metrics to braised short ribs?


Do you not?


As a matter of fact, I do.

I also apply them to parenting. And to my marriage, which my wife loves.

Little Bobby's fLAR (home-neutral love above replacement child) has slipped with his grades.

Can you give us your scouting report on Oscar Taveras? How close is he? What do you see? What are some comparable players in the majors right now (or historically?)

Any reason why Tavares couldn't be the Cardinals starting CF'er in 2013?

What are the best and worst organizations for teaching prospects/ training prospects to reach their potential?

Where do the Cardinals fit?

Cards fans have been talking about Kolten Wong all year, some even calling for his call up to the majors. I'm not sure any of those people have looked at his stats this season in the hitter-friendly Texas League. Should Cards fans be worried about Wong?

Matt Adams quietly had another great season at the plate in Memphis, between his injuries and call-ups. Meanwhile, Craig appears to have 1b locked down in St Louis for the foreseeable future. Which player will end up with the better career?

Also, it's hard to get into hypothetical trades in an on-line Q & A, but if you were going to keep either Adams and Craig and use the other in a trade, who would you keep and why?

Cards fans had mixed reactions when Luhnow left for Houston. The new regime has one draft under their belt, with mixed reviews. Will we regret losing him or will we not even notice he's gone?

How did the new slotting system affect this year's draft? Are you a fan of the new system? Why or why not?

Give me one under the radar player in the Cards system that we should keep our eye on.

How would you rank the Card's 2012 draft? What mistakes did they make? What good picks? Overall, how would you grade it?
