    I will remember this date and the “Sacrificial Lamb” comment. No significant injuries to St. Louis. Tell that to Jaime Garcia, Michael Wacha, and Yadier Molina. Unlike you Craig, I have no idea who will win the NL Central, and while the Nats and Dodgers hold nice leads it is way-y-y-y too early for guarantees.

    Of course one can always revert to the lame, I am just trolling, but with the return of Wacha and Molina, the favorable schedule, an offense that has apparently awoken, and a AAA squad loaded with talent for September call-ups (different player of the week winners the past 3 weeks) the Cards are primed to make a run, not just for the top wild card spot, not just the NL Central, but the best record in the NL.
