Luhnow was kind enough to take out 45 minutes from game action to grant an exclusive, in-depth interview which will be rolled out in four segments.
Part one includes Luhnow's take on the Arizona Fall League and snapshots of the Cardinals prospects competing there. Specifically, he discusses Mike Parisi's new pitch, Bryan Anderson's recent bout with the flu, Daryl Jones' advice to bunt more and what was behind the decision to pull Lance Lynn from the AFL.
Luhnow offers his support of the "Junior Fall League" for A-level players in Arizona next year and reinforces the push of position players across the system to play winter ball for further development. We discussed next the competitiveness of the system in 2009, especially at the high end and at the lower level clubs and his hope for a repeat in 2010.
