Why Allen Craig needs spring training less than any other Cardinal -- even while on the mend

ST. LOUIS -- If anyone on the Cardinals shouldn't report to Florida before the mandatory reporting date, Allen Craig tops the list. He lives in Southern California, so he hasn't had to worry about winter messing up his off-season regimen. Plus, there's no need to uproot his young family any sooner than needed. Besides, the later he reports to work, the less time he has...

Cardinals' Allen Craig not expected back before postseason

Allen Craig and his projections

I have been writing a series of posts that seem to take issues with how projection systems predict certain players over the course of the 2013 season. It may seem like I have an issue with projection systems. The fact is that I do not. When you put all of their projections together, the margin for error is quite small. All of them pretty much work the same way. You plug in the...
