As noted during Saturday’s broadcast, Brett Wallace has been promoted to AAA with David Freese headed to the DL with more foot issues.
Protracted commentary will come later this week — snap decision: too soon.

With Brett now the 3B for Memphis, it makes even less sense that the Cardinals are protecting Craig from the 40 man roster.
This is not good news for David Freese. I wonder just how bad his foot injury really is. But as for Wallace? If the guys a top pick lets see what he can do at AAA. Because there is no way that Glaus or K Greene is back next season unless they both take huge pay cuts. That opens up 2 spots at the big league level. This is probaly why you are seeing T Greene starting again today. K Greene is a low .200 hitter every year he has been in the league.
Allen Craig is not on the 40 man roster.
Right, HL is saying there’s no reason not to put him on it. Not that the Cardinals were protecting him with it.
I noticed they have Brett Walace listed as 6-2 205 on the Memphis roster. He lost 50 pounds over night.
Maybe too soon, but still exciting. Just 1 level away!
Am I misunderstanding the common meaning of “low” or “every”? Doesn’t seem to me that .273 or .254 are in the low 200s. Nor is greene’s value measured by BA.
Mixed feelings on the walrus promotion. It’s good they waited until 3b was clear with freese going to the DL. I would have been upset to have him promoted and not get the defensive innings that he needs.
I’m just surprised they didn’t hand the Memphis 3B job over to Craig. I can only surmise that the organization feels his defense does not play well at 3B and they view him as a Joe Mather style utility guy who can play both IF and OF.
Steven Hill left the Springfield game with an injury today. In 24 hours that Springfield lineup lost 2 of it’s top 3 hitters.
redbird…i think you are not giving greene enough credit…until last year, he was an above average shortstop….and i think he has shown this year, in spurts, that he has the ability to do it again…i will say that he needs to turn it on soon, or tony is going to completely sour on him
Back to K Greene’s average. I just view a .250 avg as not being any better than what we already had in Brendan Ryan or anyone else. And I believe Brendan Ryan is not making $6.5M a year. I have watched K Greene play and I don’t see him being any better than B Ryan in the field. Just view it as lets promote from within. We currently have an $88M payrol at the big club with $25M of it not on the field at the moment. Its hard to be competitive with 28.4% of your payroll tied up in 2 players not on the field.
That fact that news of Troy Glaus not meeting with doctors until June can’t be mere coincidence.
I wonder if things don’t go well with Glaus, Wallace finds himself 2 good months at AAA away from the big club.
The Thurston experiment isn’t working and Tony apparently has zero respect for Brian Barden.
Any word that barden said something to tony? The thurston show has gone on so long I can’t imagine they’re that disappointed in his performance. Seems more like a personal problem; not that tony has a history of holding a grudge against a player . . . .
I for one am certainly excited that our top minor league hitter is now just a hop, skip, and jump from Busch.
I like Khalil over Brendan just because Greene offers the threat of a HR while Ryan is no threat at all.
Tyler has power, speed, and defense; just probably needs to be starting at Memphis this year instead of St. Louis unless you’re willing to just throw away the season.
If Spicoli’s healthy, I think you have to play him in 2009. You can’t give up on him a month and a half into the season.
Is it just me, or did one minor car accident over the winter, compounded by the fact that Freese didn’t tell anyone about it, essentially end his shot at being a vital part of the future for the Cards?
I hope he gets healthy and pulls it together, but it just seems like by the time he does, others will have pulled ahead of him on the depth chart.
Long live the Walrus!!
