Looking forward to 2004: Cincinnati Reds. "It is hard to imagine a scenario in which the 2004 Cincinnati Reds are competitive. If absolutely everything breaks right for this team, they’re an offensively solid squad whose offensive pitching relegates them to a 'tough division' fourth place finish. If even the slightest thing goes wrong, Cincinnati is looking at a team so abysmally bad as to give the ’62 Mets and ’03 Tigers some company in the Hall of Modern Suck." (Baseball Primer)

2004 St. Louis Cardinals Preview. An excellent piece, beginning with the author's memories of growing up a Cardinals fan in the 1960s. (Batter's Box)

Prospectus Triple Play: Chicago White Sox, St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers. "Who compares most favorably to Hank Blalock? Who else is a young stud, a bright star that swings a big stick, mans the hot corner, had some initial performance issues in the Big Show but otherwise possesses an ability that arouses the envy of men everywhere? Dirk Diggler? No. Well, maybe. But not in the baseball context." (Baseball Prospectus)
