Big hump today.The Cardinals have been drawn to 5 games over .500 like stink on **** for the better part of 2 months. Every time they go over, they fall back. Every time they get close to .500, they surge ahead.So headed into a weekend series with the Cubs and having the chance to get to 7 games over .500, take 3 of 4 from the Dodgers (2 with addition Hanley Ramirez) and hit the road feeling like things are trending up would be a big plus.That’s still pretty ugly there. The Pirates are going to fade away soon enough, but those 8 game tears from the Reds (including 2 last inning comebacks in 2 days) are going to put the Cardinals out of reach for the NL Central title if they don’t WIN series at home and KILL the NL bottom feeders.It’s going to be a brisk 94 at game time today. Time to take advantage of fall-like weather and get after it.
