When the St. Louis Cardinals announced the signing of Carlos Villanueva, there wasn’t much expected by it. The 31 year old Villanueva had been a swing man through most of his career.

As I’m sure everyone has heard by now, as a result of the injury sustained during Saturday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers, Adam Wainwright will likely miss the remainder of the 2015 season.

Just going to throw a few of my observations out there. The lefty lineup worked. I wasn’t one of the many complaining … Continue reading
