This guy has homered in 3 straight games and hes batting .343 with 10 RBI's, any Cardinals fans know if this guy is for real?

Yeah maybe youre right Dooner64, I see he's going to be 30 in July so it's not like he's a prospect, but apparently the guy can straight-up rake.

All of the Cardinals outfielders are legit. A very good outfield flying under the radar.

Absolut is correct.

The Cardinals outfield is very deep and is very talented. However, this is the first year for any of those starters being full-time players. As a matter of fact, the only person in the outfield who may start every game is Ankiel. He obviously has the most fantasy value. As for Duncan and Ludwick, they can switch off a lot and neither of them will more than likely start a whole week straight.

The Cardinals don't have a leadoff guy who is any good if they start Ludwick, Ankiel, and Duncan. To combat this, the start Skip Schumaker start often because he is a leadoff type guy. They also have Brian Barton as an outfielder who has a little over 1/3 of the games because he can leadoff and he brings some speed to the Cardinals lineup. Because Ludwick and Duncan can't leadoff and Duncan can't hit lefties......you will see a lot of time split in the corner outfield positions between Duncan/Ludwick/Schumaker/Barton.

So, yes I do believe they are for real, but for the aforementioned reasons, Ludwick and Duncan lack fantasy value.

Ludwig is finally back in the lineup today. He hit three homers in three games and couldn't get back in the lineup for a few games. That says volumes about the cardinals outfields situation. And remember Rasmus is waiting in the wing.

First at bat, Ludwig smashes another long dong. Guess the redbirds will have to make room for him. The birds will continue to platoon their outfield. Especially with Skip starting to heat up at the plate and barton as a legit base stealer.
