Hi my name is Mike Ommen and i am a junior at EIU, studying journalism and public relations. I am a vested sports fan of the Chicago Blackhawks, Bears, Bulls and St. Louis Cardinals. I will be writing a blog all semester for my class mainly about the St. Louis Cardinals and their attempt to bring back another world series to St. Louis.
Cardinals try to bring back World Series to St.Louis:
Right now the cardinals sit atop the MLB with the best record in baseball at 86-46. With just one month to go in the regular season, the cardinals still have work to do if they want to earn a spot in the playoffs. The NL Central is without a doubt the toughest division this year. The cubs currently sit in 3rd place (10 games behind the cards and 6 behind Pittsburg) with a phenomenal 75-56 record. All three teams in the division have records that would put them in the playoffs. as for the cardinals, they still have two three game series’ for each the cubs and pirates. with the schedule the cardinals have now, they only really need to focus on 12 of the 30 games they have left. I do not mean to say they can go blow those games, but the 12 games they need to focus on are all against the cubs or pirates, which can help them win the division faster. the cardinals look for the sweep tonight against the Nationals before they open up a three game home stand with the Pirates.
