(Festivus313 from Pittsburgh)
|You're guess is as good as mine. I still have yet to hear a good answer as to why he didn't get out of the GCL this year. From a talent standpoint, he's ready for full-season ball next year. Heck, I think he was ready this year. The Cardinals know what they're doing, so I assume they have their reasons and I assume they have something to do with getting acclimated to life in the states. Despite being 19, this was his first time stateside. If he's being held back, it has to be for a non-baseball reason. Assuming he can handle it off the field, he has to go to the Midwest League for a challenge next season, and even that shouldn't be too much of a hurdle for him.
I really like Parra. (Jeff Moore)

(Derek from MO)
|Raw tools. You're not going to find a lot of polish in the GCL, which is what made Frederis Parra stand out so much. For pitchers I look for a good frame (body) and an arm action that I like. Velocity is good, command is a plus. Throwing a secondary pitch for strikes is a really big plus. For hitters, I look at the swing, the actions at the plate and the pitch recognition. (Jeff Moore)|
