It’s April, Yo!

So we’re only one week into the season and already folks are sounding the bell on the Cardinals’ chance to win out the NL Central. 

Have the Cardinals had a bad week?  Yes.

Is that reason to say they’re done?  No.

Are the red hot Reds the undisputed favorites to win the division?

I don’t know.  It’s April friggin’ 7th.  But since inquiring minds keep blowin’ up my Twitter*, I had our RSBS interns track down Lil Wayne, to see what he thinks:

My rapper eye rollin’ speak is a little rusty, but I’m pretty sure he’s tryin’ to say “I don’t know”… either that or Dusty Baker just got through abusing his arm and he needs some time to shake it off.

Either way, ask us again… in September!

And don’t hate me, ‘cuz you know I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff

*Someday I hope to meet a time traveler from the 1950s so I can see the reaction on his face when I tell him “folks is blowin’ up my Twitter”.

I honestly believe the Cardinals will contend this year. Even with the Wainwright thing, even with the Pujols thing, even with the shaky start. They know how to win better than any team in that league.

Are people really counting out the Redbirds already? Yikes. I think this division is going to be a tangled mess of rivals beating the crap out of each other for 163 games. An epic No Holds Barred, Last Man Standing Steel Cage Bruhaha. My kind of summer.

I volunteer my services to talk people down off the ledge. I’ve had plenty of practice here in Wrigleyville.

Oh no, not a bad week! The season is so short, how ever will the Cardinals recover?! I mean, it’s already April 8th and it’s not like they get to play 162 games or anything like that!! Oh…yeah…wait. ;)
I agree. No one should be counting any team in or out solely on the basis of the season so far…or even on the entire month of April, really.

Virginia — You are right about that. Thanks for the support!
Ron — Your prediction sounds closer to the truth… I just hope the fight goes all the way til the end of September.
Kristen — Exactly! I think the extra panic is a result of all the bad vibes around the team now (Waino, Pujols, Holliday, not hitting, etc) but it’ll swing around.

But…but…ESPN says it’s important!!!

Who cares about the first week? I can’t believe people start reading tea leaves and making judgments about the whole season based on a few games. Nonsense!

Jeff,
Only you can get Lil Wayne.
Maybe next time he will tell us his anthology to why he is “the man” and we are the ” ants of his World”.
Seriously, anytime you can get a rapper to talk sports, and not mention the word NY or Lakers… it is a thrill.
