New Arrival: Oscar Tarvaras, OF, St. Louis Cardinals

What a tragedy for Mr. Tarvaras’s family and the City of St. Louis.

I got these two autographs a couple weeks ago.  The top one from a dealer, the bottom one from a private signing.

Oscar Taveras is considered one of the three top prospects the game, and by far the games best OF prospect.  He was signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2008.  Since then he has done nothing but hit:  last season he won the Texas League MVP; last season he was the Midwest League batting leader, hitting .386.  He is, by some accounts, the best hitter the team has had since Albert Pujols.

He was almost called up last season, and this season he is starting at AAA.
