Don’t look now

Don’t look now but the Cardinals seem to be actually on a roll.  Don’t confuse this with the team getting hot.  Yes, they’ve won 3 in a row and 6 of their last 7, but I wouldn’t  necessarily call the way the Cardinals have been doing it, “getting hot.”  4 of their last 6 games, including, their last 3, have all been 1 win margins.  Most of that has come from wins in the late innings, including the walk-off variety, because they have dug themselves in a hole in the early innings, or blew the save.

Nevertheless, a win is a win and the standings only show the wins, not how it happened.  I’m just hoping that these squeaker wins will truly spark the Cardinals into getting themselves going on all cylinders.  A lot of the pieces seem to be right there: Adams has begun to heat up again, Descalso is producing off the bench, Yadi has begun to catch again and Wacha’s rehab is going well.

If by September, the Redbirds can get going in the way I know they are capable of, the central division could easily be in reach.  Of course, the Brewers will have to help out, as they have been going like a team who is ready to win it all.  Hopefully with their 5 game winning streak, they have peaked a little too soon and we’ll see them slip into 2nd before long.

For now I’ll just take the wins, however we can get them.

 

A win’s a win,
