A month in and not only are we NOT in last place, we are only 2.5 out of first, swept the last 2 series (Washington and Cleveland) and have a better record than the entire NL West.

Our pitching is turning out to be one of the better staffs in baseball; that includes the bullpen who had a very rough start.

We finished April with the 5th best record.  We are 15-10 right now.
I saw that, youth is the way to go, and it looks like Philly may have finally figured that out. I'm pleased with the way the Sox are playing right now, as a team with everyone contributing.

It's all pitching - we only have 1 veteran guy in Hellickson; the rest are up and comers. They've been great. They set a new strike out record for April.

Our offense is doing just enough but we have guys in AAA that should fix that eventually.

I just know I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

The Cardinals can't seem to beat above 500 teams...but we sure did shut down Brat Harper.

he's amouthy punk....but he is a great baseball player.

Big test for the sox the next few days, 3 games against the surprisingly strong Chicago whit sox, owners of the best record in the AL. The good part is we miss there 2 best starters, but they are still a formidable team, and we put owens , wright and bucholz up against them

I just pencil in Bucholz days as losses. Easier to make it through those days, and then if he some how pulls off a win, then it's a nice surprise.

yeah, I kinda do too. Plus it's hard to watch, even if he is having a great game, he gets a guy or two on base, then the game goes into super slow motion, and you just wait on the edge of your seat for the inevitable meatball to come and break open a game. he is a talented pitcher with some serious flaws in his game, one of which is the confidence to just go after a hitter when there's a runner on base.

the Phillies are looking goood...they have something going on there..looks like some people are there to build around that wont break the bank either...

I'm not used to all of this Cubs stuff..being a top team and throwing no hitters and being the "target"...catching a lot of haters etc....it's def something we havent felt in a century lol...its weird because our team is on pace or breaking records that date back to 1908 and 1945 when they won and went to the World Series...its scary ...I must ask JJ how to handle such things lol..

RedSox fans..is this how you felt when you guys started crushing it with Theo?? makes me nervous

No, we are fickle, it didn't feel real until game 7 of the ALCS.

it's ALL pitching so far but they are all youngsters who will lead us going forward. Our rotation is play-off ready even if the offense is not.

Not just saying this because I'm a Cardinal fan but until September hits, I wouldn't get too wild about it. Everything can change....baseball is a marathon. Arrieta is a stud, though. He's refreshing to watch.

Phillies have great pitching, Blondie.

You are right JJ...you just know baseball and i dont take it as a Cardinal fan thing ...its just the best start we've had since my existence lol....we had the home run years with Sosa and them but I disregard that for obvious reasons...its just nice to see my team play good all around ball..field, bullpen, offense, small ball..etc...its fun...never got to do this before haha.....I seen that the NL central still has the top three records in baseball since last year combined...its a fun time! What are your feelings on JHey? I know most of you hate him for his comments...

it cost a lot of $$ to get those pitchers. We've paid off most of the contracts on the guys we traded. Most teams rebuild a lot slower. I think the Phillies understand that they need to put asses in the seats again.

I'm hoping they bring up some of the position players this year - you'd think if the pitching keeps up they'd have to.

I'm indifferent towards Heyward. I think we have plenty of talent in the outfield and didn't need to offer him that much anyway. I don't think his comments were meant to be taken the way they were. He's fairly young and to be on a team making a good go at the WS is what he thought was best for him. I think a lot of cardinal fans were just frustrated that he turned down the offer when the Cardinals have proven themselves time and time again and he added insult to injury mentioning an "aging team".

thank you~!! That is what I thought, but my opinion doesnt matter as a Cub fan....I thought the same thing....

I think he just had a one year deal..and had a new deal at his plate..and took it...he apologized a million times for that comment...

us Cubs fans love Yadi and Wain...etc...

OK, First off the sox got rooked on friday, that should have been a tie game with one out and the bases loaded in the ninth, and who knows what happens after that. second, Price better figure out WTF he's doing wrong soon, that was another terrible outing. But wright pitched awesome last night and Papi should think about foregoing retirement for another year.

Papi should forego Retirement for the foreseeable future, just saying, he may have 50 hr's this year!

at this rate maybe more, he's on fire.

for the most part I'm overjoyed at how they are playing, Porcello pitched well enough to win that game friday, wright has been unbelievable and offense is great, much better than i thought. i'll take it, but 31 million for an ERA over 6 isn't gonna cut it, Price has me a bit worried, he better not be hurt

I officially decided I'm ok with trading places with the Cubs as long as the Blues win the Stanley Cup. This is a one year only deal.

PS. I went to the game yesterday with my mom. I enjoyed seeing David Freese again, even as a Pirate. I also liked the pink uniforms...those shoes were bright.

I was a little confused by those floral sleeves though - we had a couple of guys sporting them

But I did like how the names were in pink - it makes the rest of it almost blend in

I think we way overspent for Price, I still would have rather had Greinke.

overspending is relative, if he was performing I would be fine, I mean if Porcello pitched last year like he is now noone would have questioned the contract, to me it's all monoply money but if you are gonna spend it you better get something for it. I have faith he will turn it around and be a decent pitcher but nobody is worth 30 million a year.

well with the way bartolo colon can hit and pitch, maybe he is but nobody else tongue
