    Two questions about Cards:

    T.C. (Memphis): Adam Wainwright and Blake Hawksworth - are those two future front end starters for the Cards, or merely the best of below-average group of prospects? Is C Daric Barton an impact player down the road? Thanks!

    Jim Callis: Both, really. Their system is pretty thin. I see Hawksworth as a No. 2 starter and Wainwright as a No. 3. The jury is still out on whether Barton is a true catcher and he hasn't made it out of Rookie ball, so I wouldn't get too excited yet
    Erik J(Olney, Ill): How good is the Cards prosepect Adam Wainwright

    Jim Callis: I think he'll be a solid No. 3 starter in the majors, and you'll probably see him in St. Louis at some point this year. Wainwright has good stuff across the board, if not a dazzling out pitch, and his command improved last year. The Cardinals could really use him in their rotation.
    I was suprised they rated Hawksworth that high. Is anybody a subscriber to, to enlighten us as to where the Cards prospects rank in the top 100? I got a snickers bar for the first person to respond.
