The scheduling gods smiled upon our Cardinals.
We have 25 games scheduled in April. We start the season with 3 at the Phils, then 3 against the tail end of the Cubs rotation in Chicago. Then we have six home games against the Brewers and Reds before going to Pittsburgh to play the Bucs. We then have a 10 game homestand against the Cubs, Pirates and Nationals to finish out the month.
There really will be no excuse for not finishing the month 18-7 or 17-8. Of course, 20+ wins would be fantastic!! But considering our offensive woes we better get every win possible. Especially those in April while other Central Division clubs are waiting on their starting pitching to get healthy.
