First, it's great that a Cardinals' win, plus a Braves' loss, has St. Louis just one game out again in the National League wild card hunt.
But, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reminds us of an overtone, or undercurrent: Was this the last game with the Birds on Bats for Albert Pujols? (Feel free to voice your opinion in the two polls at right: What is his likelihood of moving on and, if he does, to where?)
My take? There's a 50-50 chance he leaves; if he does, I still see the Cubbies as the most likely landing spot.
