Nothing like taking 3 from the division leaders to propel yourself firmly back into the pennant race.
The most ridiculous part of this remains the fact St Louis is still 2 games under .500 for the season. They shouldn't be 2.5 games back and be 2 games under .500.
Take 1 game from Chicago this weekend and it's a winning road trip. Take 2 and we split in Chicago, which would be a major victory. Anything more than that is in the realm of impossible dreams, where it will stay - especially since our best pitcher (Wainwright) pitched today, so he won't go against Chicago.
However the way the guys are throwing the ball right now it may not matter. So for now let's just enjoy the ride.
