If there is one main thing that I had to take away from the 2016 Cardinals' season, it's this: pitching.

Was the pitching good? Yes. Was the pitching bad? Also yes. The pitching that the Cardinals provided in 2016 was a true definition of a rollercoaster ride. There were pitchers that opened the eyes of many, and there were pitchers who didn't execute as well as the Cardinals have been known for.

Here, I will be breaking down who shined bright and who was an upset throughout the 2016 season.
