2005 NL World Series Representatives

The St. Louis Cardinals might be in a tough spot without Scott Rolen in their line-up for the rest of the year. I know the Cardinals have been playing well, seemingly always getting bailed out by Jim Edmonds and Albert Pujols. Rolen was the 3rd #4 hitter in that line-up hitting behind Edmonds. The Cards are playing well right now but come post-season contests and the better teams and pitching could spell disaster for the Cards, considering that Sanders has been out, Walker just came back and might not reach top form again. I still pick them as the favorite in the NL, because the pitching has been suprisingly stellar from Carpenter and Morris. Neither of them gave us any reason to believe they would pitch this way this year. As of late neither one has had thair A-Game against the better teams they've faced. Jason Marquis is not the pitcher his record reflects, he's not as good as his, where Mulder is better than his record reflects. Mulder could possibly be the post-season hero for the Cards in 2005.
