The St. Louis Cardinals are known for having solid hitters who know how to work at-bats, adjust to the situation and drive mistakes out of the park. The 2014 lineup has a similar look and feel with a few new faces taking everyday roles.

If they get the usual performances from their veterans, the Cardinals will only need complementary contributions from the new guys to support their pitching staff and win the NL Central.
