Of course, we all know that's not possible, so I'd say they wind up at 7-6.

Anyone taken Acts of God into account? That could change things.

Uh oh, I don't like where this is headed...

You know what? In order to avoid confusion, we should make an official list of possible records for the Cards after 13 games. I know 9-4 is one...

Bigger surprise after 15 games the SP or the OF?

Are you aware that the combination of Ankiel, Duncan, Ludwick, Schumaker and Barton have a .389 OBP and .600 SLG%? They are leading MLB OF in almost every offensive category.

I still say pitching. I always felt this OF could go on hot streaks. I'll put the OF at the top of that list if they are still performing at a high level at the end of May.

Actually, I take that back. The most surprising part of all of this is that the Cardinals were somehow 10-4 after 13 games.

yep, it's the pitching. I thought the collective ERA might possibly be north of 5 at this point, certainly in the 4.5-5 range...certainly not 3.11.

I thought Ankiel plus Duncan would give us adequate production from the outfield and that the Ludwick/Schu/Barton rotation wouldn't be half bad. They've been better than I thought but I was still somewhat optimistic about that situation to begin with.

Don't look now but the Cards have the second best record in major league baseball.

If only the playoffs started on May 1.

I say the pitching is definitely a bigger surprise than the OF. Wellemeyer (3.24 ERA), Lohse (1.48), Blooper (2.70), Wainwright (2.78) make you forget that one of your 4 losses came when Joel Pineiro got shelled by the Giants of all teams.

For me, the most amazing thing is that the Cards have eight players on the DL. 8-o
