It may [...]

By now, you should be fairly familiar with the Cardinals 25 active roster.  As of the completion of the game against the Royals, it consisted of 13 pitchers, 2 catchers, 6 infielders, and 5 outfielders, although technically Allen Craig was getting playing time as an infielder as of late.  Shortly after the game, it was [...]
