Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Throughout the offseason, St. Louis Cardinals players heard plenty about how good the rival Cubs were going to be. They are feeling a bit neglected after leading the major leagues with 100 victories and outdistancing Chicago to win their third straight NL Central title last season. Long ago, they moved on from losing Jason Heyward and John Lackey to the Cubs . 'People can say what they want but when teams come in to play us they want to beat us,' said closer Trevor Rosenthal , who set a franchise record with 48 saves last season. 'They want to beat us for a reason because they know we've had success in the past. It's good to be on that side.'" - Sports Writer R.B. Fallstrom in The Register Mail (04/02/2016, 'St. Louis Cardinals 2016: Cards tired of talk, ready to open season', Source )
