With Lance Lynn finding a new home with the Minnesota Twins, and talk of Jake Arrieta himself signing soon (thank you Phillies), that leaves us with Alex Cobb. The Cardinals rotation is "set", with 5 guys already penciled in to start, and others waiting in the wing. The concern for the Cardinals

The Cardinals have made additions to their lineup this offseason in which the team can head comfortably into the season with no glaring weaknesses. With Marcell Ozuna on board, the outfield has top five potential overall. Addition by subtraction with the trades of Piscotty, Grichuk, and Diaz will help Matheny

Last Saturday at Winter Warm-Up in downtown St. Louis, President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak made extensive comments on the bullpen. One name he tossed out as a possible internal option was Jordan Hicks, the 21-year-old flamethrowing righthander. Mozeliak's comments centered on the organization's evaluation of Hicks as a "one-trick
There were several things that did not turn out in the St. Louis Cardinals favor during 2017. The team was reliant on the ascension of Randal Grichuk and Stephen Piscotty. The latter regressed. The former, while a good and useful player, did not become the fixture as hoped. Adam Wainwright
