When it comes to the St. Louis Cardinals I often hear people say that they have a lot of good players, but not a star player. This seems like a fair take when looking at their roster. Adam Wainwright is clearly not a star pitcher anymore. We all know what Carlos Martinez is capable of doing, but will he take that step into stardom? On the hitting side there are a lot of good players, and then there’s Matt Carpenter. He has always been viewed as the player on the bubble of stardom. We all know that he’s a great player, but is he a star? It turns out, he just might be.
