That was one of the more loaded systems in recent years and they aren't getting the production from the hype, few come in and do good from the get go, most of them that make it have major growing pains and a majority of prospects don't even make it at all.
Did you not read the link I gave you before?
You clearly have the standard delusional mindset of the typical Cards fan. You somehow think Its Dusty's fault a player like Cozart has hit .243 over 633 AB, Dusty doesn't make him have low BABIP just like the Cards vets aren't magically letting their players see BABIP spikes. Just what Vet is helping Kozma with those swinging bunt hits?
The main reason the Cardinals are hated by other teams so much s their ignorant and audacious fans, Cards fans are so unbelievably stupid and or cocky they think they can beat how baseball works and feel they will somehow hit on all the prospects and beat the history of the game.
Those problems you say are future problems are this year problems, all of the top guys are at the top of the system and will be just w
The Cards have had tons of guys bust in recent years and over the last ten years other than the several names you listed. Zack Cox just got a MLB deal form then a couple years back and they gave him to get Mujica and then he got DFA's by Miami of all teams, Wallace is a bust but they at least sold high on him, Tyler Greene was a bust hell even Kozma was a bust and ever so close to getting cut before finding that Cardinals Pixy Dust once in St Louis. Bryan Anderson was a Top-100 prospect they just let walk as a minor league FA after he busted. Eduardo Sanchez prospect star is fading by the day after being stuck in Memphis. Daryl Jones at one point was suppose to be the next big thing for the Cards was a Top-5 prospect and has never playing in the majors, Jess Todd was once projected as the Cards future #2 now is a bad failed BP arm the Cards traded picked back up and cut again.
I could keep going if need be, so yes not even those magic vets can save all the prospects.
The Reds don't have to worry replacing BP until 2018 they have several years to pray someone pans out, they need someone to replace Ludwick now as real teams who aren't lucky actually have holes when players get hurt. When Choo leaves they are going to hope Billy Hamilton fills the void but its a crap shoot as if he will or not because once again here in the real world prospect flop if he does the Reds will have some issues unless someone else pans out of they can get someone on the cheap we are going to hope one of Cingrani or Corcino can replace Arroyo and the one who can't will go into the open hole we have in the BP.
We have a young core and have our top talent evenly spread over the system so we are going to get 5 more drafts before we have to honestly start worrying about the next wave of impact players. The Cardinals have most of the top prospects ready now or over the course of this year and most all of them play positions where good players are at now so their position isn't like most teams, their organization rating is going to fall and the improvement at the big league level is going to be the same as the new guys are replacing good players.
Soon our system will pass the Cards due to it being cyclical and it will be our turn not to graduate key players, not trade prospects and see some FA leave and bring us a few more picks. Just like it was when we rated in top tier and the Cards were lower just a couple years back.
The moral of the story is no matter how great you think your system is or how awesome you feel the player development is or how magical the veterans are or whatever else things foolish Cards fans buy in on there is only sure bet in baseball and that is prospects are going to fail at a big clip and most of the ones who don't fail aren't going to live up to the hype they had coming up.
If prospects panned out like Cards fans apparently think then baseball would be the most popular sport in America and the bottom half of MLB rosters wouldn't be filled with so many scrubs and mediocre players and it would be impossible for teams to lose as much as Houston has the last two years.
