5 St. Louis Cardinals to watch in NL wild card game
You know that Nolan Arenado is already hyped to be in the playoffs during his first season with the St. Louis Cardinals.
This is why he wanted to be traded to the Cardinals. To be playing in a playoff game close to where he grew up in southern California? If it wasn’t already, this has to be a dream come true for him. Arenado will undoubtedly be fired up and ready to put on a show for the Cardinals to take them deeper into the playoffs.
Arenado ended the season hitting .255/.312/.494 with an OPS of .806. And people thought he would have a hard time adjusting to playing outside of Coors Field! He had 34 home runs and 105 RBI. Just amazing. He feels like he can do more.
Going into the postseason with a player of Arenado’s caliber is something Cardinal fans have wanted. It will be fun to see just how well Arenado does. Arenado wants to win. So do the Cardinals. This is going to be fun to watch.
