St. Louis Cardinals: 10 top moments from 2022 regular season
3. Paul Goldschmidt’s MVP-caliber season for the Cardinals
Just as Paul Goldschmidt would like it, he has quietly done his business on the field and in the clubhouse, gaining admirers as he goes along. He has had an admirable season that should earn him votes for Most Valuable Players.
Goldschmidt played in 151 games for the Cardinals, hitting .317/.404/.578 with an OPS of .982. He scored 41 doubles, 35 home runs, 106 runs, and 115 RBI. He walked 79 times and had seven stolen bases.
Goldschmidt did a tremendous job this season getting on base and moving along the base path, creating scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. He has been such a tremendous asset to the Cardinals this season. It would be hard to imagine what the team would be like without him.
While Goldschmidt trailed off in September, here’s hoping he used that time to heal in preparation for a big postseason run for the Cardinals.
