The St. Louis Cardinals are back. After a long offseason, Opening Day is finally here. Beefed up with a new rotation, the Redbirds are entering a make-or-break season in 2024.

The NL Central might be the most open division in all of baseball. So there's plenty of opportunity for the Cardinals.

St. Louis added Lance Lynn, Kyle Gibson and the American League Cy Young runner-up Sonny Gray this offseason, revamping their rotation.

But they also made some behind-the-scenes move in an attempt to right the ship and improve locker room morale and culture. The team brought in Chaim Bloom, Daniel Descalso (bench coach) and the legendary Yadier Molina (special assistant).
