The Saint Louis Cardinals this spring are off to a 5-4 record. So far the Cards have lost to the Astros, the Nationals, Marlins, and the Mets. I am not worried about any of those teams above I would be fine if we lose to all of them. The one team that I am really worried about is the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs are going to be a good competition this year. It also will not help the Cardinals that their starting shortstop Johnny Peralta. They are predicting that Peralta will be out 2-3 months with a thumb injury. Most people do not realize how big of an impact he is. He is a very solid fielder and also is a decent hitter that we could rely on most of the time.
