I have to be honest...I haven't been paying much attention to the Cardinals. But I noticed something last not...very, very disheartening to a Cubs' fan:
We are all excited about Baez, Almora, Bryant, etc....well, they already have
Lance Lynn 26. Shelby Miller 22, Joe Kelly 25, Michael Wacha 21, Trevor Rosenthal 23, Kevin Siegrist 23, Adam Wainwright 30....
that's half of a damn good pitching staff that is very young
they also have Matt Adams 24, and they actually have one of the top hitting prospects in Oscar Tavares, and best pitching prospects in Carlos Martinez...
this really bummed me out...here is my radical plan....it's time for realignment!
SOUTH & WESTERN STATES LEAGUE- Dodgers, Cardinals, Giants, D-Backs, Padres
SOUTH & EASTERN STATES LEAGUE- Marlins, Braves, Nationals, Reds, Phillies
NORTHERN STATES LEAGUE- Brewers, Mets, Cubs, Pirates, Rockies.
you may question my geography skills....
