Why can’t the Cardinals just win? Come on. If they had played even halfway decent lately, we could easily be in first place right now. Instead, we’re still four games back of 2 teams and riding a 6 game losing streak. It’s enough to make you lose your mind. The Cardinals have got to win this game against the Reds to avoid falling any further behind. A win here would put them no more than 4 back and possibly less, depending on the outcome of the Cubs game (the Brewers are off today) and still within striking distance.
The problem is, there is less and less time for striking. The Redbirds must get hot and must get hot right now. Sitting 4 games in back of Chicago, a sweep of the Cubbies this weekend, would have us tied with them. Not to mention the 3 game set against the Brewers next week. That’s what’s keeping us in this hunt. We get to play 7 games against the team we’re chasing. Our destiny is in our hands. Let’s go out and get it!
Avoid the sweep,
