I’m not sure about the Cardinals. I love Jordan Walker, Maysn Winn, and Tink Hence. I believe all three have a chance to be impact players. Thomas Sagesse will be better than people think, but after that, I’m not sure there is enough for them to be considered a championship-level team two to three years down the road. Sure, Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arendo are still very good, but let’s face it: Goldy will be 37, and Arendo will be 33 next season. I’m still not sold on Gorman being a star. It feels like a good team – an 85-win team, but not more.
I know they can dip into free agency, but that has proven a challenge for teams trying to build core pieces with 30+ year-old free agents.
In the end, it all feels a tad light to me.
- Top Prospect: Maysn Winn
- Biggest Mover: Thomas Saggese
- Biggest Disappointment: Gordon Graceffo
- Emerging Prospect: Reiner Lopez
