St. Louis Cardinals: Keep Dylan Carlson in the Minors until 2020

One of the St. Louis Cardinals’ prospects is among the best hitters in the entire Texas League. While a callup is tempting, he should stay in the Minors.

Re-tooling the St. Louis Cardinals Roster for 2020

We can all agree that the 2019 St. Louis Cardinals have failed expectations due to underperformance and poor roster construction. It is time for a re-tool, of sorts.
