The scary thing is the Cards are good enough and have the pitching to run on a 10-12 game winning streak and the Reds have enough question marks and lack of a bench to lose 10-12 games in a row. I'm not say either will happen but nor do I want it to happen but I think it is far too early to say this thing is in the bag.
The Cards don't have the pitching depth to get past a 3 game winning streak, yet alone over 10.
