Talking Cardinals Prospects with Kary Booher

Audio chat with the Springfield Cardinals beat reporter about prospects and rankings.

Kary Booher of the Springfield News-Leader is one of the best minor league beat reporters around. The former writer for Baseball America has a broad perspective of the game that shows in his top-notch coverage of the Double-A Springfield Cardinals of the Texas League.

As he was gathering background for an upcoming story on prospect rankings and how they are developed, Kary and I had a conversation that included both process and a number of top St. Louis Cardinals prospects. Since his upcoming article will only have room for a bit of our discussion, Kary was kind enough to allow me to record our chat and share it with you, The Cardinal Nation subscribers.

Look for Kary's prospect article at the News-Leader and follow his Springfield Cardinals coverage all season long. You can also follow Kary on Twitter @karybooherNL. I will add the link to his prospect article once it is published.
