Since coming to the team in 2009, he’s had only two seasons where he failed to attain at least a .300 average. In both cases, he fell short by .005 or less. His on-base percentage in that time has hovered right around the .390 mark. Despite his decidedly positive numbers, leadership has a cost. Bearing an, at times, undue amount of blame is one of them. This spring, he’s put up an early performance that almost no one could critique.

Bringing Oscar Taveras to St. Louis would be more than a thrilling spectacle, it would be a game changing shift for the lineup. It would also keep Allen Craig safer. If nothing else, it would give FOX Sports Midwest a chance to learn his name.
