The key word in the title being “team”, as in there is no one player that is miles above the other. The Cardinals have talent all the way down the lineup and it’s fun to watch. The fact that they are 20 games over .500 on June 11th is a testament to them playing as a team and not as a team relying on one certain player to carry the franchise. I am going out on a limb here but I think this may be the best team the Cardinals have had since 2004 and that team didn’t win the World Series. I like how there is no real easy out on the roster. If I have one complaint, and it’s not a large one it’s that the youth movement at pitching. Don’t get me wrong I like the Shelby Millers, Michael Wachas, Seth Maness’s of the world but I do sometimes worry about them over the long haul. I hate to say it but I think the Cardinals may possibly have to be active come trade deadline time. I hope I’m wrong but no matter what happens the rest of the year. This is a special team. And I write this even after the Cardinals lost to the Mets 5-1 tonight. I still have faith that the St Louis Cardinals will end up a record setting team.
