Coming in at #5 on the Top 10 Baseball Teams list is the St. Louis Cardinals. One of baseball’s premier teams, both past and present, the Cardinals graded out exceptionally well, with above-average showings in every category led by the most recent playoff wins and the second most World Series wins and second highest average attendance. In a St. Louis market without an NBA or NFL team, the Cardinals have come to represent the city and its fans, who are often considered among the best in baseball. Through their frequent success, they have represented St. Louis well. With the additions of All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and lefty reliever Andrew Miller to an already-strong roster, the Cards look poised to bring even more success to St. Louis this upcoming season.
Unfortunately for Arizona Cardinals fans, 2019 will not be the first year they get to see their team raise up the lombardi trophy. The Arizona Cardinals are coming off a disappointing 2018 season. After losing many close games, the Cardinals closed the season with a disappointing 3-13 record. Fortunately for the Arizona Cardinals fanbase, the team is starting to point in the right direction. They have a future franchise quarterback in Josh “the chosen one” Rosen, an established star running back in David Johnson, and legendary wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
In addition, the Cardinals just hired Kliff Kingsbury who is known around the league as an offensive mastermind. Kliff Kingsbury had great success coaching college football and is known for his superb job of developing the 2019 MVP Pat Mahomes. Many believe that Kingsbury will be able to develop Josh Rosen similarly to how he developed Mahomes at Texas Tech. With the recent success of Sean McVay, young offensive masterminds such as Kingsbury are in high demand. In an NFL era where elite offenses are all the rage, Kliff Kingsbury is the perfect hire for a young NFL team on the rise.
