ST. LOUIS – The Cardinals have been red hot as of late and are now leading the race for the second spot in the National League Wild Card race.
But one month ago, Michael Fettinger wasn’t the only St. Louis Cardinals fan concerned. His favorite team was struggling and a healthy dose of reality is natural for any sports fan.
“I don’t want to call myself a fair-weather fan. I’ll never say that, but I had some doubts,” Fettinger said.
Baseball fans specifically know, timing plays a huge factor, and right now the Redbirds are red hot as they hope to make a playoff push and capture the final N.L. Wild Card.
“Man, Tyler O’Neill dude he’s shown up,” Fettinger said.
O’Neill was recently named MLB Player of the Week, helping lead the Cardinals to an eight-game win streak.
“The whole team has just shown up big time,” Fettinger said.
There’s still a lot of baseball to be played in the last few weeks of the season and the Cardinals need to keep winning.
The reality is they may drop a game on the way. But they could get some help if other teams lose.
“We always enjoy every other team in the major leagues to lose and the cardinals to win. That’s ideal,” Fettinger said.
Whatever they’re doing as of late, Fettinger says keep it up.
“You guys are knocking it out of the park literally.”
Lifelong Cardinals fan Jose Mayo Agrees.
“one game at a time just one game at a time pitch by pitch don’t hesitate keep calm keep winning.”
A playoff push would also be great for businesses around Busch Stadium. Rob Colie of Paddy-o’s says his staff is ready and so is he.
“Starting the playoff mustache right here just a couple of days in hopefully by the time we get there, and we get going I’ll grow it all the way out through the World Series,” Colie said.
