St. Louis Cardinals MLB Draft
With four picks on the first day of the MLB Draft, the Cardinals chose four right-handed pitchers. Though all have very different styles, Dan Kantrovitz believes all have the potential to become "quintessential Cardinals."
The current rules in the MLB Draft allow teams to move around money and exceed their allocated pool amounts with some penalties. The Cardinals have done well the past two years in bringing in talent under this system and 2014 should be no different.
The keystone is an interesting position for the Cardinals from a talent perspective. A good chunk of solid talent in the low minors that needs to be culled a bit yet, and some very high profile bats in the mid-minors that could easily be pushing the guys ahead of them very soon.
"A good friend of mine used to say, 'This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.' Think about that for a while." -- Ebby Calvin LaLoosh, Bull Durham
