St. Louis Cardinals look to get key hitters going vs. Minnesota Twins

Sports
Matt Carpenter returned to the St. Louis Cardinals' lineup Tuesday night after getting a few days off to regroup. Now, it's Dexter Fowler's turn to get back on track. Fowler is expected back among St. Louis' starting nine Wednesday when the Cardinals wrap up a two-game interleague series with the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minn. The center fielder was expected to be a sparkplug atop St. Louis' lineup this season, but both he and Carpenter got off to the worst offensive starts of their careers.

A plant-based diet is a diet based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. Find out how a plant-based diet is different from a vegan diet.  Most of us could stand to eat more plants. In fact, almost 90% of Americans don’t get their recommended intake of fruits and veggies. Eating more produce helps lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and even some cancers.But there’s more than one way to up your plant intake. For some, the path to a plant-heavy eating plan is through veganism. A vegan diet is strictly against animal products, in every form.

Instead, it appears to be another ineffectual gesture the company has been making as it casts about for an identity. But if you dig a little deeper, there really may be something for investors to...
