Fellow Cardinals fans and dynasty league players, my name is Jeremy Mahy and I am honored to have the opportunity to cover the St. Louis Cardinals organization for Prospects1500. The team at Prospects1500 is dedicated to bringing high quality content to it’s readers and I am excited to get to work with this organization.
Baseball has been a love of mine since the days that my friends and I would ride our bikes to the corner convenient store to buy and trade baseball cards. Growing up in the Midwest as a lifelong Cardinals fan I started out rooting for Ozzie, Vince, Willie, and my personal favorite Tommy Herr. In 2022, we saw the retirement of recent franchise greats Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina and likely soon to be followed by Adam Wainwright. Those retirements combined with the age of the current core of this team, means it will soon be time to reload the big league roster
The Cardinals fan base is passionate about their team and has high expectations year after year. Much is said about “The Cardinal Way” and how this organization goes about its buisness. One aspect of that is the way they develop their minor league players. The Cardinals are able to consistently be competitive by supplementing their big league roster with players from their minor league system. I am excited to get to analyze and discuss the next wave of guys that will be the stars of tomorrow.
I have played dynasty baseball for six plus years and thanks to some very competitive leagues, I have learned the importance prospects play in sustained competitivenes. Not only knowing the value of a prospect and how they fit your roster, but also being able to get in on a prospect early in order to beat league mates to them and get a leg up on the competition.
When analyzing prospects I like to use a combination of statistical analysis mixed with live looks and video to build a more complete picture of the player. There is so much prospect analysis out there that the big names are easy to find. My goal is to bring further statistical analysis to some of those better known names while also finding the guys that have yet to pop in the main stream. I will use the combination of looks and specific statistical analysis to help the readers go beyond the tool grades and find those players that can be assets to their dynasty teams.
