Labor Day Reading And Only A Month To Go

1 Samuel 11.


All tied up with a month to go.  Which should be fun. 

So maybe they should just condense every baseball regular season down to a month and have an all-out throw-anyone-out-there-whenever-you-need-them melee to decide division champions?

After playing lifeless and punchless for the past 4 1/2 months, I can't believe the Cardinals stand where they do this morning.

I predict they will likely fall by the wayside, like the 1983 Cardinals did after Labor Day.  Mostly because of the Pirates and the Giants playing so well, I think the Cardinals may not even get a Wild Card slot.

But after a frustratingly mediocre season so far, an explosion of offense and a glimpse of some talent from their highly-touted prospects would seem to be due as well.

26 games, 12 at home and 14 on the road, including two series against the Reds and Brewers and one against the loathsome Cubs, are all that's left of this season.

Time to get out your snowblowers soon.

The Indians just did fantastically against number one Kansas City. Then turned around and tanked today versus number two Detroit, with our ace on the mound. Indians stepped it enough last year to get into the wild card game, so I can see them doing it this year. Every player will have to be at the top of his game to advance beyond that, however.

Barb!

September is the make or break month, for sure. Good luck, I am rooting for you to make it.
