I’ve made my views pretty clear on the international market. As difficult as it can be for fans to get good information on stateside prospects, it’s orders of magnitude more difficult to sort through the specious International prospects. I’m also a strong advocate of the wait and see approach with these types of prospects and thus far none of our international signings have made me reconsider that (despite the Carlos Matias watch).
Ben Badler at Baseball America is the premier source for international prospects though and he’s ranked the top 33 this year with video (free) and full scouting reports (subscription — but seriously you should subscribe to BA). I do not expect the Cardinals to sign anymore big name players and certainly not hand out any additional 7 figure bonuses to international prospects but it’s fun to speculate.
