You don't see them running someone out there hitting .215, where we were doing it often, with sometimes 2 or 3 in the batting order hitting .215 or less.
They have some guys playing way over their heads and have a middle infield of Descalso and Kozma. Molina had a .688 OPS in his career then jumps to .814 last year which was .065 better than his previous high then that jumped to .874 this year. They have a guy like Craig who his .400 with RISP and .273 in every other situation, Jay blows on the road but has a .430 BABIP at home Freese is a decent play but has a real high BABIP for a player as slow as he is. Beltran is still decent for his age and Matt Holliday is a legit star player.
In a time when the MLB offense is going down the Cards are getting guys to spike offensively.
