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.
When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room...is for fun.

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.
