Candidly, 20 games over .500 isn't a small feat for this Cardinals team.
There was a point a couple weeks back where the slide to 10 games over .500 was more of a realistic reality than 20+. But thanks to a realization that comebacks past the 6th inning are legally allowed and the extended break between Jake Westbrook starts… here we are again.
But in case you weren't paying attention to the schedule… the season is about to be decided over the next 19 games:
Have you looked at that? Is that real life?
2 lay-ups in Wisconsin, before a brutal 17 game stretch where the Braves serve as an entree into back-to-back-to-back-to-back series with the Pirates and Reds.
The NL Central WILL be decided over the next 2.5 weeks.
I'm not the best at looking way ahead on a calendar, but it looks like the playoffs are here. And the Cardinals seem to be rounding back into form.
