I said a couple of weeks ago that I thought the most important upcoming series on the Cardinals schedule was the 4-game set at Busch against the Giants.
Again, the Cardinals have to win the games against the weaker opponents and prove that they are a superior team.
If the Cardinals want to keep Pujols on the back burner and the season in focus, they cannot lose the month of August.
Cardinal Nation will be holding its collective breath as the All Star honors are bestowed and the trade deadline looms.
If they are not winning, there is a greater possibility of injuries or other factors off the field at play. This team is far too good to lose the month of June.
May is a month the Cardinals need to dominate if they are to be taken seriously.
St. Louis will be looking to get off to a quick start
