The Cardinals' 2009 season is up next on deck, and here is my prediction for the lineup/batting order. The 2009 season will be the 128th season of the St. Louis Cardinals—and the 118th in the National League.
*Warning: This prediction is based on information available as of Dec. 18, 2008. Lineup could potentially change. The order is subject to change based on pitcher handedness and players' overall performance during the year.
