Those rumors of the Cardinals going after Price are starting to make more sense.

What's the outlook on Martinez for next year? Is his shoulder injury expected to carry over into next season at all?

Since it's a shoulder injury, and those are often the precursor to a pitcher's demise, he's presumed dead until proven otherwise.

So which Cardinal minor leaguer is going to come up and throw 175 innings with a 3.25 ERA next year? My 2016 fantasy team would like to know.
In Theo we trust.

If Óscar Taveras hadn't died St Louis may have kept Shelby Miller on their roster. He'd be a big help with the loss of Lynn, likely loss of Lackey and Garcia's lack of durability. I wonder if in hindsight one year of Jason Heyward was worth four years of Shelby Miller.

Anyone have some projections on the type of player Taveras could have become best case scenario?

He peaked at #3 prospect in the game, so best case scenario you could have dreamt on just about anything, especially given the fact that he was a CF with pretty much a 5 tool skillset.

We also had a Center Fielder who at one time was the number three prospect in baseball in Corey Patterson. Wonder if Taveras would have fared better.

I was actually surprised to see how good Patterson's Double-A stats were in 2000. I've heard he was supposedly rushed to the big leagues that year. But a 21 year old Center Fielder with an OPS of 829 certainly warrants consideration for a big league promotion. Especially when you consider how bad we were in 2000. A toolsy 21 year old Center Fielder, who's raking in Double-A, is certainly capable of giving fans hope for the future when promoted at the end of a bad season.

He's (Lynn) definitely going to have the shortest recovery time in TJS history.
