This stretch just ahead totals 13 games. What do you think the team’s record will be in that time?
The Cardinals are now 8-10 in June, heading to Milwaukee to play four vs. the 1st-place Brewers … then home to play the 1st-place Indians … followed by the 1st-place Braves … and finally the 1st-place Diamondbacks.

gonna be tough…if we can go .500 i will be happy, but i think outside of CLE i think the other three teams all have warts and troubles…so i dont see why we cant win some game
i dont usually prognosticate…but how about:
1 of 3 to CLE
2 of 3 ATL
2 of 3 ARZ
(i have no idea on whether any of those other series are 4 games or not)June 20, 2018 at 6:59 pm #57455
Having most of them at home helps. I’ll be the optimist and say
2/2 with Milwaukee
2/3 from Cleveland
1/3 from Atlanta
2/3 from ArizonaJune 20, 2018 at 7:18 pm #57456
Sorry, I thought it was clear. 13 games – 4 (Milwaukee) = 9 for the others (3 x 3 games each).June 20, 2018 at 7:47 pm #57457
Yeah, I understood. I just started with one format and switched to another after the Milwaukee series, haha. I meant 2-2 against MIL, 2-1 CLE, 1-2 ATL, 2-1 the last series w/ARI. So 7-6 overall.June 20, 2018 at 10:55 pm #57464CardsRedSox4EverParticipantFree
I’m less optimistic now than a month ago. We keep thinking our team is going to break out, but it’s just not happening, and won’t, I’m afraid.
Brian – what’s your prediction?June 21, 2018 at 1:14 am #57468mspaidParticipantFree
There are too many problems on this ream for them to break out but they can stay close into September and who knows what could happen.June 21, 2018 at 1:29 am #57469Euro DandyParticipantFree
If I were betting $, this is what I’d go with:
# wins for each series
– 1 Brewers
– 1 Indians
– 2 Braves
– 1 D-BacksJune 21, 2018 at 7:14 pm #57589
Sorry I did not see your question, CRS4ever. I will predict 6-7.June 21, 2018 at 7:27 pm #57591Euro DandyParticipantFree
One of the most foolish looking attempts to catch one at the wall that I’ve ever seen by Ozuna. It costs the Cards two runs for now, hopefully that’s all.June 22, 2018 at 8:11 am #57701July 1, 2018 at 6:58 pm #58747
Update. With three games to go in this 13-game stretch, the Cards’ record is 4-6. That means the end result will be between 7-6 and 4-9. So everyone who made a prediction is still in it.July 5, 2018 at 6:03 am #59185
Looks like the 6-7 picks were correct.
I did correctly pick 3 of the 4 series, just missed the Braves sweep.July 5, 2018 at 7:15 am #59186bccranParticipant
Bad Braves series, but split with Milwaukee, and 2 out of 3 from both the Indians and Snakes. Might bode well for the second half.July 5, 2018 at 7:38 am #59187
I think I had the only 6-7 prediction! I wonder what I win? 😉July 5, 2018 at 8:06 am #59190

Well, does the double header Saturday allow them yet another player to recall from Memphis in addition to the paternity leave recall Bowman?July 18, 2018 at 9:41 pm #60790
Yes, the 26th man will almost certainly be Luke Weaver to make one start. 10 days have not transpired since his option out so they can get around it this way even without another injured pitcher. Very creative.
Update: Mikolas will pitch Sunday.
