Getting Goldschmidt is a huge bonus for the Cardinals as he will fit right in with the Cardinals and the St. Louis culture.
- Matt Adams
2019 St. Louis Cardinals Predictions: Projected Lineup:
- 3B Matt Carpenter
- 1B Paul Goldschmidt
- SS Paul DeJong
- LF Marcell Ozuna
- C Yadier Molina
- RF Dexter Fowler
- 2B Kolton Wong
- CF Harrison Bader
Like just about everybody in the NL Central this is a deep lineup from top to bottom. This lineup has a little bit of everything including a potential MVP candidate in Paul Goldschmidt which is something they were missing last year. One of the best players in all of baseball; a real star player.
2019 St. Louis Cardinals Predictions: Projected Rotation:
- Miles Mikolas
- Jack Flaherty
- Michael Wacha
- Adam Wainwright
- Dakota Hudson
Like the rest of the NL Central this rotation has a lot to be desired. On the positive side for the Cardinals is the fact that this rotation does have potential, at least. Mikolas and Flaherty have shown good stuff and Hudson has a very live arm.
2019 St. Louis Cardinals Predictions: Projected Closer:
- Jordan Hicks
The Cardinals did boost their bullpen and this may give them the edge in the NL Central. They went out and got Andrew Miller and that definitely lengthens their bullpen.
Hicks has shown plenty of talent along with Alex Reyes. They have three go to arms in the bullpen and John Gant, John Brebbia, and Dominic Leone have big arms and they get swings and misses.
The Cardinals will have the potential to do what the Brewers did last year and lean on their bullpen.
2019 St. Louis Cardinals Predictions:
In fact, we can take it a step forward and say that the Cardinals potentially traded for the 2019 MVP just like the Brewers did last year with Christian Yelich.
For me, the Cardinals are my pick to win the NL Central. They seem like they have all the pieces to get the job done and shake things up in the National League. If they don’t win the division then surely they’ll be a wild card team. Basically, you can say the same thing about the Milwaukee Brewers.
