As the Cardinals inch closer and closer to the start of the 2013 season, it's hard not to wonder what lies under the surface that could throw a wrench into the Cardinals' hope for a postseason appearance.
The lineup is pretty close to set and only the fifth spot in the rotation is open. But as fans draw back their memory to the 2011 spring training and remember Adam Wainwright's season coming to a close before it began, it brings uncertainty to what seems like a sure thing today.
This piece isn't meant to bring doom and gloom to what appears to be a possibly great season for the Cardinals, but rather a dose of what could possibly make them stumble along their way.
But one thing is for certain: Even if some of these possible issues creep up, the Cardinals are a bunch who can find a way to overcome and prevail.
