I Really Really Like The St. Louis Cardinals
I predicted the Brewers to steal away the N.L. Central, but I really do like the St. Louis Cardinals. As a team, they have an awesome tradition, they've got Pujols, a sick logo, a manager with a kind of hot daughter, and a direct sponsorship from Budweiser. They're at the top of the N.L. Central right now with a 13-11 record, playing great ball. The Cards pitching staff, even without Adam Wainwright has been great, especially Kyle McLellan, who has stepped up big time and is sitting on a 3-0 record and a 2.16 ERA, pretty good for a guy converted from a reliever to a starter. Kyle Lohse has been fan-fucking-tastic for the Cardinals, especially last night, although it was against the Houston Astros. Lohse has a 1.64 ERA and a 4-1 record, it's really cool to see all the "under the radar" type of guys stepping up to replace the ace.
Henry Rowengartner becomes the ace of that staff again) Scratch that, further research has shown the Cubbies actually have beaten the Cardinals more often, 1,082-1,038. Anyhow, the Cardinals are clearly a superior team.
bird logo hat enough, cause it's fucking awesome. I own two of them. The Cardinals are one of the most storied franchises in baseball, and while the Brewers are still gonna dominate the N.L. Central, the Cardinals are definitley a team to watch. I'd even go so far as to call them the Yankees of the National League. And I mean that in the best way possible, fuck Yankee haters. And Cardinal haters for that matter too.
