Uncustomed Heroes of Baseball: Cardinals
The Cardinals, shockingly, did not make the playoffs this year.
This could be thanks to injuries, unsuccessful call ups, old-faithfuls that suddenly stopped being reliable, or just the fact that this once-strong World Series squad just isn't what it used to be.
Either way, when he was healthy, Brandon Moss was having one of the best seasons of his career. The guy's come a long way from being a bench player in Pittsburgh, and even if he's not a top-caliber star like he was in Oakland, he's still doing great things in St. Louis. Not sure if he's sticking around, though.
Mike Leake was an offseason addition for the Cardinals that didn't go exactly as planned. Leake's best numbers were as a Cincinnati Red, and he hasn't done the greatest job since his tenure there. His numbers this season were...surprisingly subpar, especially for Leake. Hopefully things will turn up.
Coming Tomorrow- The little guys that took home the gold this year.
