Hunt and Peck: Links of the Weekend

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals need to take advantage of their upcoming schedule.

The Cardinals have had a rough first half of the 2014 campaign. However, they have also had one of the toughest schedules in the central division so far, especially if divisional opponents are not included. The Brewers have been able to feast on some weaker competition up to this point, which is what good teams must do. The Cardinals have survived the tough half of the schedule. Hopefully they can follow the Brewers' lead and make a push for the division crown down the stretch, as the Cardinals' competition gets weaker and the rest of the Central's gets stronger. -Infogram

  • Joey Votto's locker is so clean (or course) that is sparks trade rumors. - Cut4
  • The Brewers have a very steady rotation with possibly five ERA qualifiers (the 2004 and 2005 Cardinals make this list). - Fangraphs
