Across the globe, fathers love to play catch with their sons secretly hoping that one day they'll get to see their family name in the big leagues. For a handful of fathers, that dream came true this past weekend.
The 2013 MLB draft has given new meaning to the game of baseball for a fresh crop of talent who will now get paid to play it.
Some franchises are walking away happy, and it is my understanding that the St. Louis Cardinals belong to that category—having been proclaimed one of the "winners" of the draft. So now that there are some new "baby birds," how does this shake up the top-prospect list?
Of course, we have limited knowledge of the newbies—simply what they've done in their high school and college careers. And, unfortunately, I don't get to watch too many minor league games. But I've attempted to reorganize the Cardinals top 15 prospects based upon the statistics and scouting reports I've found, as well as the rate at which I think they might rise through the minors.
Without further ado, here is the new breakdown of the top 15 prospects.
