More from St Louis Cardinals News

Cardinal fans are year-after-year spoiled rotten with talent.  2016 shows to be no different.  With the weakened NL-Central divison (with the obvious exception of the Cubs), the 2016 Cardinals should find themselves battling on only one front.

This is not to say that the ever-resourceful Pittsburgh Pirates under the great Clint Hurdle will not cause or create a challenge to the birds on the bat but 2016, with the winners above, should present a great season for Cardinal fans.
