Top 10 Cardinal Starting Pitchers Of The 2000's

Justin HulseyCorrespondent IMay 8, 2010

Many of you are not going to agree with this list, but let me clarify something before you throw a fit. Somebody that was with the Cardinals for a year or two, then became great, is not going to make this list (Haren). Somebody who had three great seasons is not going to rank higher than a pitcher who had six really good seasons (Kile/Morris). These are the ‘Top 10 Cardinal Starting Pitchers’ … Not the ‘Top Ten Starting Pitchers Who Happened to Play for the Cardinals’. Big difference.

Please keep that in mind and enjoy.
