The St. Louis Cardinals have been one of the more dominant teams in the MLB over the last decade or so. Since 2010, the Cardinals have won a World Series (2011) and five NL Central titles, all while never having a sub-.500 record during that span.

Talkin' Baseball's Twiter account shared some stats on Monday that show just how dominant the Cardinals have been over their divisional rivals since 2010.

Since the 2010 MLB season, the Cardinals have a record of 1,019-821. That puts them 72.5 games ahead of the next-closest NL Central team, the Milwaukee Brewers (948-895).

If that wasn't impressive enough, the Los Angeles Dodgers (1,068) and New York Yankees (1,046) are the only teams to have more wins than the Cardinals over that stretch.

Expectations are high for the Cardinals in 2022 after they recorded their second 90-win campaign in three years in 2021. They've been eliminated in the Wild Card round in each of the last two seasons, so a return to dominance would be much appreciated by their fans.

The good news is that oddsmakers see the Cardinals as being close to a top-10 team in 2022. FanDuel Sportsbook has given them +1800 odds (T-No. 11) to win the 2022 World Series.
