 St. Louis Cardinals have one of the best record in Major League Baseball. They are in first place of the National League Central by 2.5 games ahead of the Cubs. The Cardinals have had some injuries with Carpenter and Ryan, but their replacements have done a good job filling in. The Cardinals do not have a lot of big names in their roster, and that could be a good thing and a bad thing. The good side is they all are competing for a spot on the roster and play with heart each and every game. The bad, they don’t have a lot of experience when it comes to the post-season, if they can keep it up. The 2009 Cardinal’s start is one of the best in Cardinals history. Hopefully they can keep it up and stop their 2-year drought of not making post-season play. I think the Cardinals are capable of making the post-season and doing some unexpected damage as the did in 2006 when they won the World Series. They will compete throughout the year for the NL Central or the Wild Card.
