We'll see what happens.
I never made any predictions, so there aren't any that can be considered correct or incorrect. All I ever said was that I felt St. Louis was a better team by a decent margin, and that I considered that to be more important than scheduling so I would rather root for Pittsburgh in situations they were head-to-head. That wasn't really a prediction, just an assessment of circumstances.
If they lose this game, they'll be 20-22 since the All-Star break. They had a few really good months of baseball. It was a nice story. Now it's time to acknowledge they're a decent team, but that's the extent of it. It doesn't mean they're out of the race or can't go on a tear, but I think we're seeing the regression a lot of people anticipated for a few months.
