What Now?

The Cardinals will get relief from the frigid Pittsburgh air as they open a three-game set in Atlanta tomorrow.

Jaime Garcia and Matt Wisler will square off on the hill for the 6:35 CST Friday contest.

Assuming all is still well with Carlos Martinez‘s shoulder (I’ve heard nothing to the contrary), expect to see him on Saturday and Adam Wainwright to close things out on Sunday.

More from St Louis Cardinals News

The Braves are pretty much in full rebuild mode, and two out of three is pretty much a must for the Cards.

The Braves were last in baseball in runs scored a year ago, and they are one of the few teams that have been worse than the Cardinals offensively thus far in 2016.

The Braves are 0-2 on the year after dropping each matchup of their two-game set at home against Washington.

Look for the Cards to get every facet of the ball club on track against Atlanta. With series’ against Atlanta, then Milwaukee and Cincinnati at home ahead of their first meeting with the Cubs, the Cardinals have a chance to get some positive momentum going.

If things don’t get better over their next nine ballgames, we could be in for an ugly series against Chicago and, consequently, a long season of baseball in St. Louis.
