Carpenter and Wainwright win less than 15 games combined as Cardinals finish below .500. (Sorry Mike and Matty, luck evens out eventually )
I don't know if you would call the Cards dominance in the division luck. During the time of TLR and Duncan, the Cards averaged the 3rd best ERA in baseball. That simply isn't luck.
It's ok though, the Cards won't blow 200000000 leads this season due to a better bullpen and will still win even if Carp and Waino win less than 15 games.
