On Deck: I Thought The Cardinals Sucked?

St. Louis Cardinals (11-4) vs. Milwaukee Brewers (8-6) - 1:15PM Est.

Okay, a quick raise of hands: How many of you thought that the Cardinals were going to start the season in first place of the NL Central and tied for the best record in all of baseball? LIARS! ALL OF YOU! Nobody saw this coming from the Redbirds, and honestly, I still don’t actually believe it’s happening. The next thing you’ll tell me is that the Marlins are in first place in the NL East, and that the White Sox and Royals are battling atop the AL Central while the Tigers and Indians jockey for position in the basement.

The Cardinals are not only sitting alone atop the division right now, but they’re on the cusp of finishing a three-game sweep of the Brewers. They’ll be looking to Kyle Lohse to finish the sweep, and considering that Lohse was a pitcher seemingly nobody wanted, and the Cardinals signed out of nothing more than desperation, he’s paying off pretty damn nicely for them. He’s 2-0 with a 1.04 ERA in three games so far, and didn’t give up his first run of the season until his last start against the Giants. He’s only 3-3 with a 5.66 ERA in his career against Milwaukee, but in his last three appearances against this current version of the Brew Crew he’s 2-0 with a 0.77 ERA.

Manny Parra goes for the Brewers, and although he made two starts against the Cardinals last year he never picked up a decision. He probably wouldn’t mind if Prince Fielder ate a cheeseburger or four before the game either, as we still await our favorite vegetarian’s first home run of the season.Continue Reading
