Cardinals 19th Best Team in Baseball?

Joe Sheehan at Baseball Prospectus predicts the Cardinals to finish the season at 79-83, and as the 19th best baseball team in 2009 (Requires subscription).

He is highly critical of the team defense, faulting Schumaker at 2B and Duncan in LF as a poor idea for a pitch-to-contact pitching staff. He also views the pitching as over its head last year and is "skeptical of a Chris Carpenter comeback."

Among the teams he ranks as (albeit marginally) better: The Brewers, Giants, Marlins, and Reds.
