The Cardinals should benefit from Dexter Fowler's plate discipline -- Alex Crisafulli dove deep and crafted a story about Fower's protectiveness of the plate, a trait that the club will benefit from in 2017 and years to follow.

The Cardinals should bat Dexter Fowler first, Matt Carpenter second -- Bouncing off Alex's story about Fowler's plate discipline, Joe Schwarz, in great detail, explained why Fowler should lead off for the Cardinals and Matt Carpenter should bat right below him.

Taking a glimpse at Austin Wilson, the Cardinals Rule 5 Draft pick -- I took at look at Austin Wilson, the right-handed-hitting outfielder the Cardinals added during last week's Rule 5 Draft.

Everyone is excited for Dexter Fowler! -- A Hunt and Peck -- Lil_Scooter continued Monday's Fowler theme with a tale that captured the excitement Cardinals fans are sharing about the newest member of the team.

Dodgers closing in on a deal with Justin Turner -- Ben Markham wrote that the Dodgers are close to re-signing Turner, an infielder who reportedly piqued the Cardinals' interests for a little while.
