PHOENIX • When he addressed the entire roster during
spring training, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak aimed his
comments to the far side of the clubhouse where the youngest players and
the biggest jersey numbers dwell.
The Cardinals consolidate the
minor-leaguers, with football-like 60s, 70s and 80s stitched to their
jerseys, on the wall opposite the returning big-leaguers, and Mozeliak
sought to speak to directly to them about their future, saying soon they
could be on the other side of the room.
