In The Cards
That’s a lot to be excited about if you’re a Cardinals fan.
This team has made a huge statement this month, starting it off with a 15-3 record.
While the Brewers open up another series with the red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers, the Cards head to Wrigley Field for a matchup with the struggling Chicago Cubs.
This is a good chance for the Cardinals to keep putting some distance between themselves and Milwaukee and ultimately bury them in the standings.
Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado are red-hot themselves and are carrying this Cardinals team through the final months of the season.
The offense has been much better this season than in previous years and is now a strength of this team, whereas last season, it was their greatest weakness.
The Cardinals now look like a complete team.
Chances are that we’ll see them in October.
