Re: What if the Reds, StL, and Houston end tied?
Can you imagine this scenario: The Cards have to play on Monday and then win/lose to create a three way tie. Then they play the Astros and if they win, the Reds on Wednesday. If the Cards were to win all three they would have essentially already played a playoff series while their opponent has had a week off. This three way tie scenario definately hurts StL the most in terms of both diificulty and then eventual playoff games. Not that I'm sad about it.
