I mentioned a few posts ago that the Cardinals have been stuck around .500 ball and with the loss to the Cubs tonight, this continues. Here’s a breakdown of the Cardinals win / loss record by month.
March / April – 15-14
May – 15-12
June – 14-13
July – 13-11
August – 14-12
While every month the Cardinals have been over .500, no month have they been more than 3 games over the .500 mark. Before tonight’s game, they were 3 games over for August and had a chance to go up to 4 or 5 games over tomorrow. But once again, the Cardinals have failed to get on a roll. They’ll win 3 in a row, but then they’ll promptly lose 3 in a row.
The Cubs seem to always step it up when they play the Cardinals, but .500 against a last place team is not acceptable. The Cardinals desperately needed to win at least 3 of 4 from the Cubbies. Now, that they have dropped the first one, they have the extremely difficult task of trying to take a doubleheader.
I’ll be at the 1st game tomorrow and I’m super excited that my favorite player, Yadier Molina is back and I will be able to watch him play. Watch for me on TV!
Let’s take 2 from the Cubbies tomorrow,
