14-7 on the road?  Yup. That'll do. roughly 1/4 of the way through the season away from Busch, the Cardinals are pacing for a record-breaking road record. And when you win on the road, you go to the playoffs. It really is that simple.  I don't know about you guys, but I'm starting to get the feeling that this team could (COULD) be one of the best in franchise history. We're heading into mid-May and there have been 3 games that the Cardinals didn't have a chance at all to win.  Three. Out of thirty three. Even the powerhouse 2004 team that went for 105 wins were out of games more often. Further, the young prized prospects are coming into their own. Carlos Martinez is throwing fastballs through our hearts. Shelby Miller is looking like 20 year old Andy Benes' wet dreams.  Hell, Jake Westbrook for Cy Young! Maybe it's Friday. Maybe it's the half-decent weather for the first time in weeks... but this Cardinals team has the makings of a super-freaking-power. And if they start taking care of business at home?  Yikes. Watch out. Now, the Friday Links... Marketers at work. LINK HERE Printing at the office. LINK HERE Bad ad placement. LINK HERE The world's best circle drawer. LINK HERE Ladies Night. LINK HERE Celebrity prom photos. LINK HERE That's it, that's the week. Hopefully the Blues can pull out a GM 6 miracle of their own right tonight. Probably not. Since they're the Blues and you don't get a nickname like that and do awesome things. Although, I am more than willing to be proven wrong.
