Whether or not these players the Cardinals are developing were mediocre talents or not is rather subjective. Who's to say they were mediocre? Perhaps they were never mediocre and the Cards' just saw something in them. Or perhaps one's perception of mediocre is subject to frustration because of the team they root for?
