Note: this is an ongoing series previewing the Cardinals. You can find catchers here, first base here, second base here, and third base here.

I rooted hard for Peter Kozma. I really did.

The Cardinals’ first-round pick in 2007, Kozma escalated through the system based mostly on the merits of his glove, which I’ll admit was terrific last year. His bat, though, was never that great to begin with, and I think Cardinals fans were falsely given hope thanks to the small sample size of 2012 and his “what just happened” game-winning hit in the NLDS:

2014 St. Louis Cardinals Preview – Third Base

The pizza stands alone...

The pizza stands alone…

Well, the hometown hero is gone.

After putting on a post-season performance that’ll be remembered in St. Louis likely for the rest of its existence, David Freese had a terrific 2012 season, posting a .839 OPS and earning his first All-Star spot. He struggled heavily in 2013, though, posting an OPS+ barely above the league average, and he was downright abysmal in the post-season, recording more strikeouts (16) than hits (10). As a result, Cardinal management decided to give him a change of scenery, packaging him and Fernando Salas and shipping them to Anaheim for Peter Bourjos and Randal Grichuk.

2014 St. Louis Cardinals Preview – Second Base
Feb 2014 04

World_Series_Red_Sox_Cardinals_Baseball.JPEG-010c4_t607St. Louis has had a bit of a revolving door when it comes to the middle of the infield. Second base has been the worst overall culprit. How bad? The last player to start more than two seasons in a row as the opening day second baseman was Fernando Vina, whose final season with the Cardinals was in 2003.

Since then, the Cardinals’ Opening Day starters at second base have been:

2004 – Tony Womack

2005 – Mark Grudzielanek

2006 – Aaron Miles

2007 – Adam Kennedy

2008 – Adam Kennedy

2009 – Brendan Ryan

2010 – Skip Schumaker

2011 – Skip Schumaker

2012 – Daniel Descalso

2013 – Daniel Descalso

Not exactly a beacon of awesome or consistency.

ROBOCOP opens February 12! Enter to Win Passes to the St. Louis Advance Screening!
Feb 2014 04

Enter to win a pass for two!

RoboCop IMAX PosterIn RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years—and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman)—a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit—is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

Cast: Kellan Lutz, Scott Adkins, Liam McIntyre, Gaia Weiss
Director: José Padilha
