27

Bradley Ankrom

With a new owner and GM in charge, the Astros are ready to right the wrongs of the previous regime.

The Houston Astros announced late Wednesday night that former Cardinals scouting director Jeff Luhnow had been hired to replace Ed Wade as the club’s general manager, Houston’s fourth since 2004.

The Cards' VP of amateur scouting and development talks about the state of his system, evaluating some of his players, and more.

Jeff Luhnow is the St. Louis Cardinals' vice president of amateur scouting and player development, a dual position that he has held since September, 2006. A 41-year-old graduate of the Wharton School of Business who earned an MBA from Northwestern University, Luhnow joined the Cardinals organization in 2003. David talked to Luhnow about the analytical approach he brings to the St. Louis front office and some of the organization's most promising young prospects.

Wait 'Til Next Year: Hatching Cardinals

0

Bryan Smith

New GM John Mozeliak and player development honcho Jeff Luhnow have started turning things around for the Cards' system.

Before the 2005 season, the St. Louis Cardinals were rated as the most barren farm system in the Major Leagues. The team's promise at the major league level was balanced against a very light farm system--a pairing that was surely worth their World Series ring, mind you--foretold by a disastrous top five prospects list:

Wait 'Til Next Year: The Scouting Directors, NL Central

0

Bryan Smith

Bryan continues his analysis of the draft tendencies of scouting directors.

This series is my attempt to identify the drafting tendencies of Major League scouting directors. In looking at the scouting directors, I'm hoping that the past might tell us something about the future. I'm analyzing them in multiple categories: Best Player Produced, Best Prospect in Minors, Notable Steals (any notable player that was drafted after round five), Five-Round Strategy (total picks in first round divided by college and high school selections), and Strategy in a Nutshell (subjective look at the scouting director's choices). Finally, I use this information to look into the 2007 Draft Crystal Ball and determine if we can forecast choices merely based upon previous tendencies. Today, we move to the NL Central. You can find the AL West here, the NL West here, and the AL Central here.

0

Thomas Gorman

Johnson served as Senior Analyst of Baseball Development for the 2004 NL Champion St. Louis Cardinals. Now back in Silicon Valley, Johnson sat down with BP during a recent San Jose Giants game to discuss his background, his experience with the Cardinals, and where he sees the the most valuable applications of sabermetrics, both now and in the future.

Baseball Prospectus: Could you begin by telling our readers a little bit about your academic background? In the baseball industry it is a bit atypical.

Dusty Baker keeps talking about pitch counts. So does Eric Wedge. The Cardinals aren't afraid of new information. Ken Griffey Jr. thinks he's been misrepresented by the media. And Ozzie Guillen doesn't understand why everyone's so concerned with Mark Prior. All this and many more quips in your Monday edition of The Week In Quotes.

"[Kerry Wood]'s approaching the threshold of the great pitchers who don't really need a closer in the ninth. It'd been hell taking Ferguson Jenkins out of that game (Saturday) or Bob Gibson or (Sandy) Koufax or Curt Schilling or Randy Johnson or Dave Stewart or Roger Clemens back in his day."
--Dusty Baker, Cubs manager, on Kerry Wood's 131-pitch outing against the Reds (MLB.com)
