reminder: its not 2006.

Tribune staff reporter Paul Sullivan seems to think along the same lines as Carrie Muskat.

ST. LOUIS – There may be no better role model for the 2007 Cubs than the St. Louis Cardinals, who accidentally fell into the postseason last October with only 83 wins but managed to win the World Series anyway.

With the National League in its weakest state in years, and the Cubs playing at a .667 clip since June 3, there’s no reason to believe they can’t emulate the Cardinals’ run and end their 99-year championship drought.

No, there is no reason to think the Cubs can’t do that this year. But it doesn’t have anything to do with what the Cardinals did last year. Seriously, it doesnt. How can it? The Cubs are 52-46 right now, SIX games above .500 and they are still 3 games out of first place! The Cardinals finished only FOUR games above .500 last year.

83 games is not going to win the NL Central this year!! The only thing winning 83 games will get you in the NL Central this year is finishing in front of the Cardinals. Not the playoffs. So quit comparing the Cubs to the pathetic 2006 Cardinals and acting like you’re doing them a favor.

  1. looks like 83 games might when the division with the cubs and cardinals playing 5 more games and those will like be split 3-2 and neither team looking like they can go 7 or 8 games over .500 for the rest of the season.

    the cardinals were not pathetic in 2006 they just underperformed until it mattered. many people predicted them being in the world series at the beginning of the season.
