Cardinals a threat??

Just when you think they are gone, you look at the standings and they are only 6 games out of first again. Let's hope we can get this ship righted pretty quick before we give them more reason to believe they actually have a chance this year.

Your right Scuba. After the Nats swept them this past weekend, I thought that was it for them . Of course both us and the Crew lost 3 in a row, so they are still in the mix as are the Astros. The Astros with another sweep this weekend could pull within 5 games of the loss column of the Brewers. The Astros are known to be a second half team.

Both teams to me don't have enough to compete with the Brewers or Cubs. The Cardinals starting pitching is a mess and they hardly have a bullpen...also their offense goes down with Pujols even though Duncan has become a good hitter.

I tend to agree with this, but one of the teams mentioned just mopped the field with our asses in a 3 game sweep and the other team is the World Champs- not to mention they just took 3 of 4 from SD. But in saying that, I dont think they are good enough to catch us or the Brewers like you said.

However, with the Brewers collapsing like they have been, it could end up being a Cubs-Cardinals race, with a little bit of the Astros sprinkled in.

No way anyone can count these guys out just yet. We face them another 8 times. If the Brewers continue to fold and we hold first place those two series could end up deciding where and when we finish the season.

At this point, I'm not very focused on the Cards... however, to underestimate them would be extremely foolish.

The Cubs made a 8.5 game lead dissapear in one month. The Cards could just as easily erase the 5 games they are back in the next 7 weeks.

They 're like Jason - they won't stay dead. They're as annoying as their fans.

Forget the Brewers! The Cardinals are the real threat to the Cubs' quest for the division title.
