I agree with you about the transition period. They are sort of in their "hold down the fort" mentality as they transitioned out of the Pujols era. For a couple of years now, they were waiting for guys like Miller, Rosenthal, Wong, and Taveras to hit the major league roster. I think Taveras is a year away still considering that Beltran is still in the outfield but I wouldn't be shocked if Kolten Wong wins the job from Daniel Descalso in spring training and both Shelby Miller and Trevor Rosenthal has already made an impact on their roster. Carlos Martinez, who doesn't get talked about much, might actually be the best pitching prospect the Cards have and he's probably two years away.
