The St. Louis Cardinals are one of the best supported and most-watched Major League Baseball teams in the National League Central Division, thanks in part to being one of the most successful franchises in baseball history. The Cardinals’ 11 World Series titles are second only to the 27 of the New York Yankees, plus they have 19 National League pennants, and 13 division titles. Busch Stadium III has been the Cardinals’ home since 2006 and it is something of a fortress.
St Louis Cardinals Next Regular Season Game

Fowler Beat ‘em, And Then Joined ‘em
Dexter Fowler was part of the Chicago Cubs team that finished atop the NL Central and then won the World Series, but in the winter, the outfielder signed a free-agent pact with the Cardinals.
Fowler gives the team stalwart defense in center field and a legit leadoff hitter. In 2016, Fowler was sixth in the National League in on-base percentage (.393). He averaged 4.4 pitches per at bat. He’s a wise baserunner and rarely hits into double plays due to his speed on the basepaths.
Rotation Could Dictate Season
St. Louis deployed eight different starting pitchers in 2016, and that’s an extremely low number. Generally that luck doesn’t hold in successive seasons.
During the offseason, they lost Alex Reyes to Tommy John surgery. Both Marco Gonzalez and Lance Lynn are coming off similar surgery. Adam Wainwright is 35 and looks to be into his declining years.
