Cardinals news and notes: Prospects, Matt Holliday, and El Gallo doing work

Everything you may have missed at VEB on Thursday along with some new spring training gear.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

MLB released their spring training threads for each team on Thursday.  Here's what the Cardinals will be wearing:

I mean, those are fine.  But as a baseball card collector from the late 1980s, I would really like to see a return to something along these lines:

That's the good stuff.  Anyway, here's what you missed at VEB on Thursday:

Cardinals Prospects

  • Joe Schwarz had a conversation with Cardinals pitching prospect Austin Gomber about his pitching repertoire, his goals and expectations for the coming year, and Taylor Swift.  What say you, commenters?

  • The Red Baron's top prospect list continues with a look at Junior Fernandez, another international signing with a strong arm.
  • Craig Edwards detailed Baseball Prospectus' look at the Cardinals top ten prospects as well as their overall assessment of the team's farm system and young talent.

Matt Holliday

  • Given it's the season of top-tier free agents and opt-outs, I looked back fondly at Matt Holliday's contract.  If for some odd reason Holliday is the worst player in the history of baseball in 2016, we'd still be lucky to have had him these last seven years.
