I'm from the UK and new to baseball, who should I know in this game?
The Cardinals feature the reigning National League Most Valuable Player in first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and third-place finisher third baseman Nolan Arenado. Their team has a strong mix of young and dynamic talent like Lars Nootbaar, Brendan Donovan (born in Germany), and Dylan Carlson. Other names to watch include starting pitcher Adam Wainwright, who may be a future Hall of Famer, catcher Willson Contreras, who came over from the Cubs this off-season, and potentially top prospect Jordan Walker.
For the Cubs, they spent a lot of money in free agency this off-season to bring in the likes of Dansby Swanson, Cody Bellinger, and Jameson Taillon among other moves. Although they struggled last year, their young core of Nico Hoerner, Ian Happ, and Seiya Suzuki are looking to take steps forward this season in bringing the Cubs back to prominence in the National League.
