The Cardinals have better depth..... and have proven they can overcome injuries. The Reds did last year with Votto. However...having someone like Taveras lying ready in wait to help out an already potent OF lineup is pretty impressive. Having Miller as your #4 starter?
It is hard not to be negative right now...even 10 games into the season.
