Trio: LF Matt Holliday, 1B Allen Craig, C Yadier Molina
Really take your pick of which player joins Holliday and Craig, as Carlos Beltran and David Freese are impressive options as well. However, with Freese's injury history and Beltran's second-half drop-off, Molina gets the nod.
The defensive wizard has emerged as one of the game's best offensive catchers over the past two seasons, and he set career highs across the board last year at .315 BA, 22 HR, 76 RBI, kicking in 12 steals for good measure.
Craig, who missed the start of the season following knee surgery and was slated to be a super utility guy, quickly stepped into the everyday first base role with Lance Berkman injured. He shined in his first full season with a .307 BA, 22 HR, 92 RBI line over 469 at-bats. Over a full season of at-bats, he has the potential to rank among the game's run production elite.
Then there's Holliday, whose seven-year, $120 million contract (h/t SI) has never once been questioned during his tenure with the Cardinals, as he's been a consistent offensive force with terrific on-base skills in the middle of the team's lineup.
