They have had serious injuries the past 2 years and have been healthy when it counted. What is scary is that they have one of the 3 best farm systems in MLB. Shelby Miller and Trevor Rosenthal are going to be scary good.
The Cards were amazing back in the day now they have amazing luck they have went to the NLCS with 88, 90 and 83 wins for their 3 in the last 7 years, they went to the NLCS the last year years despite being a combined 5 games out of the #1 WC spot and 15 out of the division.
The motto of its better to be lucky than good should be on their jerseys.
The Cards good prospect aren't going to pan out, only the mediocre guys workout for them and you can only have 25 guys on the roster at one time so either the hero are going to get forced out or they are going to dry up in the minors or get traded.
