    I don't know about everyone else, but I actually have a good feeling about this weekend. Maybe it is still the delirium and fever dreams talking, but I see the Cards winning two of three. Lance Lynn kicks off the weekend facing Marcus Stroman at 6:05pm. The game is available on Fox Sports Midwest and for you Canadians out there, SNET, whatever that even is. KMOX will bring you the radio feed and SN590 if you are in Toronto and in a pinch.
