Throughout this series we’ve talked about how interesting and enjoyable the minor league accounts are and the Memphis team is no different.  Lots of highlights, they promote the players well, they are just great representatives of what’s coming up through the Cardinals pipeline.

It’s not easy making your own place in a market where your brother is a legend, but Bengie seems to have managed.  The Spanish broadcasts with him and Polo Ascencio are so popular they’ve expanded from a handful of dates to the entire home schedule.  I wouldn’t be surprised in a few years if these two guys aren’t covering every game, both home and away, given their charm and excitement for the game.  Bengie especially may be one of the most positive people alive!

She doesn’t know who Albert Pujols is.  She’s continually asking for sources.  She often wants John Mozeliak to wake up.  She thinks anything is good for Juan Yepez, though.  Most notably, though, you need to always remember the first phrase of her Twitter bio.

Come for the alternate broadcasts overlaying Cardinal video, stay for the St. Louis sports takes.  VHS is one of the masters of the visual media that we have in our Cardinal community and he’s always got a great way to illustrate a point.  I imagine this might be one of the best tweets ever, honestly, and he deserves his ranking based on it alone.

Number 11: QuinnSTLCards
If you’re not sure if I’m joking, I probably am. I made Mike Trout laugh one time. Nolan Arenado is good.

I actually met Quinn this past fall.  The fact that he didn’t ask to take a selfie with me quickly let me know where I stood in the Cardinal hierarchy.  Seriously, if you can name a Cardinal legend Quinn doesn’t have a picture with, you are a better person than most.  I mean, he’s got historic pictures.  He’s a great follow for his Cardinals thoughts well, of course.  Don’t mean to imply otherwise.

That’ll do it for this section.  Tomorrow we tackle the Top 10!
