"Since the National League realigned, the Cardinals have made the playoffs 16 times in 27 seasons, winning the NL Central 11 times, the NL pennant four times, and the World Series twice. More than the Dodgers, more than the Braves, they are the dominant NL franchise of the post-strike era. Heading into 2022, the Cardinals return almost the entire team that won 90 games last year, and they are on the brink of promoting two excellent prospects in Nolan Gorman and Matthew Liberatore."
