In case you haven't noticed, my boys, the St. Louis Cardinals, are tearing it up right now. They're running nine games up in the NL Central and six games ahead of anyone in the NL.
And to top it all off, they absolutely slaughtered our hated foes, the Cubbies, earlier this week. Albert Pujols had not one, not two, but THREE homers as part of a 5-for-5 night at Wrigley.
Honestly, does it get any better than that??
Eric Neel had this to say about the Cards
So I'm going to say it right now. I am wrong. I am wrong to have doubted the Cardinals. I am wrong, very wrong, to have thought the Cubs could hang with this team. I am wrong, very, very wrong to have said that Houston even belonged in the same conversation with this team.
The Cardinals are right. Right as rain. Right as a rail, riding straight through to the playoffs.
And you want to know where I'll be on the Cardinals from here on out? Right in front of the television, saying "I am wrong," over and over and over again, like a mantra, like a desperate plea for forgiveness.
I've said it before, and been wrong, but this time, I FEEL it. This is our year. The Cards finish the Yankees off in Game 6 of the World Series.
Just remember You heard it here first.
