Cardinals Favored To Win NL Pennant Again

BirdsThe St. Louis Cardinals had another spectacular season in 2013 winning 97 regular season games and winning the National League pennant for the second time in three years. 2014 is not looking much different.

The Central belongs to St. Louis, which has won the division five times in the last decade and there’s no reason to believe the Cardinals won’t make it six times in 11 years.

Adam Wainwright and postseason darling Michael Wacha are part of the division’s best rotation.

The lineup remains stacked even after Carlos Beltran departed in free agency and all-Star slugger Allen Craig missed much of the postseason last year, and the Cardinals still made it to the World Series.

This team is young, their enthusiastic and they will be around for a long time.
