The St. Louis Cardinals have seen a big change in their farm system over the past few years. Part of the change has been it’s philosophies related to the minor leagues. We have all heard about “The Cardinal Way” and that is real. Part of the Cardinal Way relates to the minors. Players should expect the same expectations and standards from the Dominican team all the way to Memphis. Also the team has made “good make-up” players a focus and we can point to several players who fit that category.
While many are responsible for this minor league shift, one man has played a bigger role, and that is the Cardinals Director of Minor League Operations John Vuch. I spoke with Vuch about certain players and what the team looks for when promoting.
