    Gotta say, I'm pumped to watch this weekend

    As a Cardinals fan I'm looking forward to your series this weekend in Pittsburgh. The Cardinals are obviously the clear cut favorite to win the Central, but this weekend is going to be a taste of playoff baseball. Late September and October baseball is the best time of the year.

    I'll make a prediction.

    Cardinals take 2 of 3 from Milwaukee while the Reds take 2 of 3 from Pittsburgh and we enter Monday with the Cardinals up 2 games on both the Reds and Pirates.

    Game 1 - Reds 4 Pirates 3
    Game 2 - Reds 6 Pirates 2
    Game 3 - Pirates 8 Reds 5

    I'm not sure you can say St. Louis is a "clear cut" favorite to win the division. Favorite? Probably. However having two teams within two games in the standings with nine to play, they had better not start getting comfortable.

    That being said...yes...this figures to be a very exciting/emotional/tense weekend of baseball ahead.

    And next weekend may wind up being even moreso.

    6 of the 9 games left for the Pirates and Reds are against each other. Thats a very comfortable position for the Cardinals to be in. And during those 6 games, Cardinals will be playing the Brewers and the Cubs.

    Reds might have to sweep the Pirates (6-0) to have a shot at the division title.

    According to Baseball Prospectus Playoff Odds they're clear cut. 65+ percent favorites with Pitt and Cincy sharing the remaining 1/3 of the chances.

    The Cardinals would have to play some terrible baseball against bad competition to not win it at this point.

    Probably true, just an arrogant way to start the discussion. It's sort of a backhanded compliment.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I didn't mean it that way. My bad. Don't get your panties in a bunch.

    By looking at the Cardinals remaining schedule: Brewers, Nationals, and Cubs with the Nationals and Cubs being in St. Louis, I would say the Cardinals SHOULD be the clear cut favorites to win the division. In fact if they don't, I would say it is a collapse on their part.
