Those damned Cardinals are six games over .500 and they're doing it with Wainright and Wellemeyer, Lohse and Looper. Just as we Reds fans are thinking that the offense surely must take off one of these days, it seems that the Cards' staff must also return to earth any day now.
Hmm... unstoppable force meets immovable object? Well, probably not but FWIW these unheralded division foes are each 5-6 in their last eleven games.
