Originally posted by podgejeff_: LOL @ runaway season for the cards. They had something like a run differential of +50 higher than we did and they've managed to turn that into a half game lead.
That's one way to look at it i guess...
Another would be that we have been without the services of our ace, Chris Carpenter, for the entire season. Our 1A ace, Adam Wainright is still working his way back from major surgery. Players on the DL already include Carlos Beltran, Lance Berkman, John Jay, Skip Schumaker, Allen Craig...all starters.... And yet, one quarter of the way into the season, we are still not only hanging around the race, but we are in 1st place!!!!
Let's go Cards!!

Congrats on 1st place. I believe the Reds spent a day or two in 1st place last May as well, or maybe June, I don't remember.

Congrats on second place!
So how long do you think we'll hold first before we give it back to you then?

No idea. Cards have spent the first quarter of the season there. I had no illusions that they would be there wire to wire, especially with all their injuries. Frankly, Im surprised noone made a move until now. I just get a kick out of Reds fans sometimes...Cards spend the first 44 games in 1st place and hours after they fall out by a half game, we get the "not anymore" post. All part of the journey of 162 i guess.
