The Cardinals have been chugging along, but if they maintain this leisurely pace, they may not catch the Brewers. After the Brewers hot start, they have also been searching for consistency. Meanwhile, there is the Pirates just chillin' out. Do the Cardinals have enough to make one last surge at the division crown?
