Well, have we pinched ourselves yet? Say what you want about the vivacity of the Cards-Royals "rivalry", but sweeping those Redbirds in the STL ranks fairly high on the pleasure principle. Somewhere between taking two of three from the Devil Rays and a night at cheerleader camp I suppose.
Have you noticed the Cardinals are inching close to .500?
Have you noticed the Royals are playing good baseball?
This afternoon its Mike Wood (3-2, 4.87 ERA) and his bag of generic stuff and a good pitching mind against Jason Marquis (9-6, 5.82 ERA) and his... his... well, whatever it is he does. He's a Cardinals starter, Mike Wood could be their #3 guy for goodness sake. But first, he's gotta bounce around for six more years, then get retreaded...
