The Cardinal Nation’s Top 10 Stories of 2017 Countdown

As the year-end rapidly approaches, it is once again time for my review of the top stories across the St. Louis Cardinals nation from this calendar year. The 2017 countdown, The Cardinal Nation’s 10th annual, begins with story number 10 and will continue daily through number one.

I will then wrap up the series with my prediction for the top five Cardinals stories of 2018 and audit how well I did in attempting to predict 2017’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 each year from 2008 through 2016 and my start-of-year predictions for 2017 can always be found via “TOP STORIES OF THE YEAR”, located on the red bar on the left side of the page, in the list directly underneath the site logo.
