The Cardinal Nation Blog’s Top 10 Stories of 2016 Countdown

molina-holl-ww-usa-200As year-end approaches, it is once again time for my review of the top stories across the St. Louis Cardinals Nation during this past calendar year. The 2016 countdown begins with story number 10 and will continue through number one.

I will then wrap up the series with my prediction for the top five Cardinals stories of 2017 and audit how well I did in attempting to predict 2016’s biggest news items one year ago.

This placeholder post will carry the links to all 10 stories. A link to it as well as the top stories of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and my start-of-year predictions for 2016 can be found via the Lists > Top Stories of the Year dropdown, located on the red bar near the top center of the page.
