10 Signs Cardinals Are Destined to Reach the Playoffs

With the St. Louis Cardinals making a statement early on in 2013, the team is showing several signs that offer a glimpse of what to expect from this team throughout the season.

The Cardinals, as of May 5, have the best record in the National League (20-11) and the second best in all of Major League Baseball. When looking at that record, there are several interesting things to take into account.

The team had one of the most difficult schedules in baseball for the month of April that included a West Coast trip and a series each against the Philadelphia Phillies and the Washington Nationals.

The Cardinals literally dominated the month, and with the bullpen's early struggles subtracted, the team could easily be 25-6. With that said, this is baseball and that means you will lose games.

Even the best teams will lose 60 games.

The Cardinals may not have hit that level in 2012, but there are a lot of reasons we shouldn't be shocked if they make another deep playoff push.
