So the Cardinals had a pretty nice season. I don't think anybody was surprised. They also got knocked out in the first rung of the playoffs by the Cubs, which I don't think anyone expected. Still, they did a lot of very good things this year, including the first-half explosion of Matt Holliday, who proved that he can indeed carry a team in Albert Pujols' absence.
Coming Tomorrow- Of course, the Cubs were the real story in the NL Central this year, and tomorrow we hear from them.
