Josh Paley of Baseball HQ discusses Cardinals with Jeff Erickson on XM

Notes the walls in new stadium will be a few feet farther, but air flow & how balls will carry aren't known. Cards are ramping up their camp efforts in the Dominican Republic & Venezuela in efforts to get their farm system going. This year much depends on health of Rolen; Josh says Larry Bigbie & Juan Encarnacion will probably platoon in the OF with Taguchi & Juan Rodriguez. Sees a 50-75 total runs dropoff this year, but still enough to win the division. Looking at Sidney Ponson situation, pitching coach Dave Duncan is good at working with veterans. Mentions top pitching prospect Anthony Reyes, though has some injury concerns. Tomorrow, will discuss Phillies.
