Don't Underestimate Cardinals

Mike Bauman wrote:The success of Tony La Russa's Cardinals teams has typically been a result of a blend; talent and determination, notable ability and a relentless day-to-day approach.
This year, it seems that the determination and the relentless approach are taking a greater share of the load. These Cardinals are grinders, like the best of La Russa's teams.

Then again, if you underestimate the talent on the 2008 Cardinals, you make the mistake that nearly every preseason prognosticator in the known world made.

Thanks for posting theo. Good article.

How sweet would it be IF(Big IF) we managed to make the playoffs and we had a healthy Carp and Waino at the top of the rotation? :cup: or World Series trophy :mrgreen:

The only media member I heard predict that the Cards would win the NL Central? Skip Bayless. God, I hate the fact that he's actually looking semi-smart.

Heck, my meager guess was 3rd with no shot at the playoffs. I thought the starting pitching would come around mid-season after Carp, Clement and possibly Mulder returned, then the Cards would make a late season run, but it wouldn't be enough.

I sure as heck didn't have much faith in the Cardinals OF production which has been way more than I'm betting most of us expected - Ank excluded.
