As is often the case, I disagree with most of their list, which focuses too much on reliever and 4th OF types.

I’ve been wanting to see a MiLB game. Maybe I’ll drive up to Peoria on Friday.

That's not nearly good enough. Our current first baseman hit 3 HR's and 4 in the span of 24 hours. He'll never make it if he doesn't improve.

Elehuris Montero, 3b, STL

Thoughts on Elehuris. Does his scouting reports back up the stat line he has put up so far in A-ball?

Elehuris Montero, 19y/o 3B slashing .320/.380/.530 in A ball. More 50/55 hit with 55 power which is good at 3B, but Montero has considerable 1B risk. He's a pretty big kid.

1B risk... that just struck me as funny. I get what he's saying, but if you think about it, the Cards haven't had a legit first baseman since Pujols. We've had players who settled at 1b because we needed someone there or because they couldn't cut it elsewhere -- Carpenter or Craig. They hoped Adams would fill that role, but he didn't really work out.

Even though 1b is a great place to throw guys who can't defend and can hit, it would be nice to lock that position down with a elite hitter who can field the position for a decade or so. If Montero does that, I'm not going to be too disappointed that he was a "1b risk".
