  • If the Cards reduce their magic # by 1 per day...

    ...they will clinch the Central Division at none other than Wrigley field in a little under 3 weeks.

    I'd love to see a celebration there...

    Holy crap, that would be fantastic.

      Let's hope they do it sooner.

      Maybe we'll have even more key players and pitchers out, so Dusty and his band of thugs won't try to hurt/bean us.

        My brother just mentioned this possibility to me earlier today.

        Salt in the wounds, that would be.
        Of course you do.

          That would be excellent..I hope that Zambrano would be on the mound as well..that would make it doubley sweet.

          My only concern is that at the current pace of things..I fear Dustah may not be coaching there next season..and that would not be good.

            I really would like to see them celebrate at Wrigley but they still need to make sure they get home field locked up over the Braves. Then I'll fell better. Until the playoffs start and I develop an ulcer or two.

              Not too concerned about that. If the Cards even just go 16-15 in their last 31 games, the Braves would be forced to attain a 25-7 mark just to match us. The Braves have been good, but not that good.

              All the Cards have to do is just to not go into a prolonged slump. And if we can shut out the Nats on back-to-back days without throwing one of out top 4 starters, in the words of Stephen A. Smith, quite frankly, I'm not too fuckin' worried.

                I dunno, it may not be as likely as you think......The Cards have a 3 game series with Houston in that span, and the number could drop 2 for each of those games, correct? On top of that, Houston also plays Florida and Philly in the same stretch.

                The number could hit 0 a lot sooner. I'm not ruling it out, but I'd take the under if I was betting.

                  I would rather see them clinch in front of a home crowd. But if they have to do it on the road, Wrigley would be great.

                    All I care about is Albert winning the Triple Crown

                    and

                    Playing the Padres in the first round.

                    The latter seems much more possible right now.

                    Go Astros.

                      Albert won't win the crown. He's falling too far off of Andruw's torrid pace.

                      And, I think you're right, we probably will be playing the Padres. Despite Houston's struggles, the unbalanced schedule will help them down the stretch (as opposed to the cannibalization of the East), setting up a Houston-Atlanta rematch, while we yet again get to beat up on a team from Southern California.

                      From there, I think we all know what's likely to happen: rematch time.

                        Jake Peavy and Brian Giles scare me in a 5 game series.

                            Peavy Vs. Carpenter, I'll take Carp. Giles is one guy. I saw SD up close and personal at their house and was not impressed. It will likely be a sweep, 4 games at the very most.
