The Cardinals have announced that first baseman Allen Craig is out with an unspecified "medical condition" and that the team will hold a press conference at about 6 p.m to address the situation.
All the Redbirds need at this point is another injured key player. Craig, batting second lately, has provided quite a bit of spark to the offense and allowed the team to endure the loss of Lance Berkman to a third stint on the disabled list.
I sure hope Craig's injury isn't serious. But the way the Cardinals are handling it sure makes me worry that it is.
