Seven games with the Nationals. Four in L.A. Six with the Pirates. Five more with the Reds. Three in San Diego.
If they win tonight, Cards will have won four in a row. The winning streak will be folllowed by losses.
Anyway, I hope so.
I really think you've been putting far too much emphasis on the competition and not enough on the actual teams playing against the competition. The Pirates have been beaten like a pinata lately, while the Cards have been starting to play better baseball. At the end of the day, St. Louis is a better team than Pittsburgh and that matters more than the scheduling.
