You guys do realize that those are the defending World Champs, and they are the real deal?
And they are showing you the difference between the World Champs and...well...the Pirates?
Gee Jeemie, what the fuck would we do without you?
Hey, that thought brightens things up a little...
Well- if you listened to me, you'd be more on an even keel when it comes to this team...
Seriously- the gap between the Cards and the Pirates is huge- I take nothing from these two games that indicates the team is ready to fall apart.
I actually agree with this. At this point in the season, the Cards are playing like the World champs. We're a team that hasn't sniffed the playoffs in over 19 seasons, and we have sniffed first place in a division somewhat late in a season twice during that span. It's what it is.
Later on, we'll talk. I believe the Pirates are going to grow this year rather than be strong early and fade, could be the reverse, but we'll see. If the Cards keep looking like they do now though the division will be a lock for them. Long season. Lot can happen.
