Big 3 game series in STL coming up for them.
If you guys can get hot again soon, I think you could take the division. The Cards have a pretty easy schedule the rest of the way, and mostly at home.
If PIT has to play a Wild Card game they are in trouble. Burning Liriano on a 1 game playoff would put them in horrible shape to face ATL or LA. I think Jeff Locke turning back into a pumpkin was a big blow. Having Gerrit Cole or Charlie Morton as a 3 in a playoff series is bad news.
At this point im fine with whoever wins the NL as long as somebody takes out the Dodgers.
