Some will say, well, they lost 2 of 3 in Chicago (and may have lost 3 of 4, considering Zambrano was pitching).
I say, they just completed a 6-game road trip to the two cities they're chasing, and they went 4-2.
I say, they departed on the trip 5.5 games out of first and return 3 games back.
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
Now, the team plays 13 of its next 17 games at home - where they've suddenly become very tough to beat. Here's the golden opportunity to move even closer (or even take) over the lead in the Central.
For the first time this season, I've become more interested in the Cardinals than my fantasy team. Though that may be in part due to the fact that my once commanding 14 point lead is now down to a single point.
