The minor league squads faced their counterparts for the
Florida Miami Marlins yesterday, but first I have some prospect-related links to peruse.
Beyond the Box Score has an overview of the Cardinals prospect rankings, aggregating the ranks from reputed sources, including the Future Redbirds list.
Also, there's an article at Five Thirty Eight, the new site run by stats guru and creator of PECOTA Nate Silver, that looks at the next seven year's of WAR production for players appearing on past listings of Baseball America's Top 100. It's interesting to look at, but in my opinion a bit flawed, since young players can appear on the list even while being several years away from the majors and can't accumulate any WAR. It's hard to say exactly how that affects the graph, since young prospects on the list that play well would be likely to appear higher on the list the following year, but the short article is far from a perfect look at the value of prospects on BA's Top 100. Still, it's worth a look, and I'm personally excited about the website as a whole.
A final note before the report: There are no minor league games tomorrow for the Cardinals.
