Everyone knows that certain franchises are just supposed to win and others are just supposed to lose and we're supposed to see the same results over and over. Nothing beats that kind of excitement, no sir! I haven't felt this kind of thrill since I last watched a rerun of Gilligan's Island!

    Have fun knowing that your 88-win team wouldn't even be in the playoffs now if MLB hadn't added a second Wild Card that served no purpose whatsoever. The Cardinals have an unmatched talent for getting every break to go their way. As for me, I'm not going to follow the rest of these playoffs because I know that either the Yankees or the Cardinals is going to hoist the trophy, and that'll be a complete non-story when it happens. I have better things to do than watch another potentially great season circle the drain.
    9 playoff appearances and 7 NLCS appearances in 13 years (8 in 17) doesn't happen just because of breaks. You need to build a very talented team year after year after year for that to happen.

    And keep in mind the biggest hose job ever in 1981. Coleman and the tarp? Flood slipping in the OF? Matheny and the butcher knife? Frickin' Don Denkinger? Rolen missing the NLCS in both 2002 and 2005? The Bullpen Phone? No Carp in 2004 and no Wainwright in 2011? Heck, from 1985 to 2005, the Cardinals were eliminated by teams with worse records in 7/8 postseason appearances. 3x by teams with ten or more losses than STL, once by a team with fewer runs scored than runs allowed. These things come full circle.

    Not too worried about the 88 wins thing. They are the defending champs, had the second best run differential in the NL, are spilling over with past, present, and future All Stars, and are a much better team than their record indicates.

    Enojy watching Gilligan's Island, though.

    Told ya. If there's a likable, interesting team out there, the Cardinals will crush them. They have some strange magic on their side that's designed to take the fun out of baseball.

    This season's pretty much dead to me now. The only team left in the playoffs that I'd be happy for is the Tigers, and there's no way they're going to win it. I wish I hadn't wasted six months of my life on this.

    Very disappointed. I was looking forward to Gnats v Nats. Washington blew it, but all credit to the Cards for not giving up!!

    Good call.
