    This epic collapse into the CoinFlip "playoff game" against the mediocre D-Bags and Cubs AA team is very frustrating.

      Well, I'll be. Thank gosh they played in the only division in baseball without a 100-win team (though I don't think they Twins or braves are demonstratively better).

      Beating out the Cubbies for the division is always a happy thing!

        Well, what a roller-coaster season that was. They were great, then awful, then great again, then almost blew the playoffs, then didn't, then beat the Braves, then laid an absolute egg vs. the Nats.

        Going to be interesting to see who replaces Wacha and if Waino retires (doubt it). And whom among our 15 mediocre Ofers will be starting most of the games?

        Hard to see where there are a lot of major upgrades available unless they break the bank for a FA staring pitcher. Another 86-90 win season and maybe-playoffs chase seems most likely.

          I wanted the Nats to win to show how stupid the playoff system is. The playoffs are designed to give the also-rans another chance.

            Its true. The Braves have made the postseason TONS of times since the division series started.

              You want the WC team to win to show how bad the system is? Doesn't that make it appear the system is working and that WC teams belong?

              Yo are right about also-rans, though. Even the post Maddux and Glavine Braves have been able to make it to 6-7 postseasons under the new absurd format.

                The Nationals had a better record and a better run differential than the Cardinals. They were favored in the series despite the Cardinals having the home field. The Nats also had a better run differential than the Braves. The Dodgers and Nats were the 2 best teams in the NL this year, and their series was a dog fight. The Braves and Cards were the real also-rans.
