Bryan, thanks for taking the time to field some questions, interaction with Cardinals players are always welcomed. You're one of my favorite prospects to track in the system and I'm sure you'll have a very prosperous career.
My question for you is more about the organization. How are the wants and needs of the organizations communicated to you, I am sure if you follow along with the club you have a pretty good understanding of what we have and what we lack, but how is that filtered down through the organization itself. Do your coaches (hitting coach, manager, etc) specifically focus on organizational needs and emphasize those in your development, or is it more of training your natural abilities and seeing how that fits in with the overall plan? How much interaction do you have with the organization on a whole? Do they feed you well?
Another question is this: Who would you rather hit against: Chris Carpenter, Roy Oswalt, Carlos Zambrano, or Johan Santana?
Looking forward to see your responses. Again thanks for your time and the best of luck, can't wait to see you hitting in Busch!
