So, then I guess it doesn't matter that the Cards took 5 of 8 from them after the break then. The same could be said for last year when the Cards had the division more or less wrapped up by the break and it didn't really matter and they did not have Carpenter or Mulder as they do this year. Having to fight to get into the playoffs can be a deterrant as well as the Cards have been able to rest some of their guys down the stretch. It did not seem to hurt today as they ran Peavy in the fifth today.
