ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The St. Louis Cardinals players describe themselves not just as teammates, but brothers. And like in any family there is that one sibling known as the bad driver. 

For this week's episode of the Ameren Illinois Inside Pitch, former Cardinals pitcher Kyle McClellan asked current St. Louis Cardinals players Adam Wainwright, Alex Reyes, Paul DeJong and Tyler Lyons which of their teammates they would never let borrow their car.

Here's their answers: 

Wainwright: Matt Carpenter

Waino and Carp are two of the seasoned vets in the clubhouse and clearly know a lot about each other. 

But there's no true beef between these two. They just like giving each other some trouble. 

Reyes: Carlos Martinez

Apparently the nickname Tsunami is not only for Martinez's wild pitching motion, but also for the condition he leaves the inside of his car. Reyes says the Cardinals ace is known for leaving his empty water bottles around.

DeJong: Harrison Bader

These two have a spent a lot of time together at multiple levels of the Cardinals organization and even lived together during the Fall League a couple years ago. DeJong says he knows Bader to be a little too fast of a driver. 

Lyons: Trevor Rosenthal

Lets hope the former Cardinals closer isn't seeing this, because Lyons is calling him out for some poor driving habits. Apparently Rosenthal was known for doing a bit of speeding...
