List Rules Vote up the best players on the 2014 St. Louis Cardinals

Founded in 1882, the St. Louis Cardinals play in the National League East, from their home stadium, Busch Stadium, in St. Louis. They have won eleven World Series and nineteen National League pennants. 37 players and team personnel have been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, but who are the best St. Louis Cardinals players of 2014?

The most storied rivalry in professional sports happens to be that of the rivalry between the Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs. The series is sometimes called the "I-55 Series" (for the highway that connects the two cities), or simply the "Cardinals–Cubs rivalry." The Cubs lead the series 1,180–1,126, with 19 ties, through 2013, but the Cardinals' 19 World Series wins gives them serious bragging rights when compared to the 2 World Series win for the Cubs.
