TEMPE, Ariz. -- We were scraping the bottom of the barrel for Cardinals story ideas today. What is there to say that hasnt already been said? What depressing note can we illuminate that hasnt already been illuminated in this 30-car pile-up of a season? What strength can we muster for yet another grim game preview?

He can however, hand a ball to a fan in the first...

I detailed the Giants/Bears battle for the 6th seed in the Giants’ write up. The Bears should take care of their business and beat the Cardinals and Detroit. They’ve beaten everyone they’re supposed to, going 7-0 SU as favorites of 3.5 or more this year. That would put...
