A critical element of this is the nature of the opposition. So that's what I tend to look at.
Particularly this year when there are two doormat teams in the Central. Which teams face the Astros and Cubs the most is important. Those teams lose so often.
So we disagree, but I have always focused on schedule in looking to possible future results and will continue to do so. It doesn't mean it works every time, they have to play the games.
But if the Cards can prevail given their schedule, they will have climbed a huge hill.
I was thinking the same thing. They still have a West coast road trip with the Padres and Dodgers. If they do it....hats off.
Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
