Everyone knows the usual suspects this season, but who is going to surprise people? Here are five bold predictions for the St. Louis Cardinals 2020 season.

The St. Louis Cardinals have an eerily similar roster to last season, so fans are familiar with the players that are expected to perform. Anyone can predict that Paul Goldschmidt will lead the team in home runs, or Jack Flaherty will lead the team in strikeouts.

However, the difficult thing with baseball is predicting the lesser-known players and the role they will play in the story of the long 162-game season.

These opinions are completely my own and I feel have some backing to them.

I want to clarify one thing off the bat: “Bold predictions” and “hot takes” are completely different things. Hot takes are stupid things people say so they get clicks or reactions from people. Bold predictions are legitimate thoughts on “outside the box” ideas.

Therefore, this will be made of bold predictions that have reasoning and logic behind them.

Make sure to let us know of your bold predictions for the season in the comments. I may feature them in a future edition of this article!
