it's a little bit of both, but more hte cardinals sucking than the brewers pwning.
podsednik established himself last year, and looks to be capable of continuing to perform, tho he's been up against crappy AAA caliber pitching thus far =D
i dont like the cardinals rotation; woody williams, who inexplicably was awesome as a cardinal since coming over from SD as a 4th-5th high ERA starter, came back to earth in the 2nd half of the season despite riding his early season greatness to 18 wins, he looks like he's lost "it' from early viewing and he'll probably go back to being a 3rd-5th starter quality pitcher anytime soon now. who do they have after that? i dont know. whats funny is that when you see generic repackaged HR highlights you can tell when it's simontacchi by those funky lookin socks.
