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.

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.
