Re: Which Corner Are You In?
I'm not concerning myself too much with this lackadaisical September. Yes, I do think we'd lose to the Phillies, because I think the Phillies are the best team in baseball. But outside of that, I like our chances. We've been banged up in September, and with our cushion in the division, we've been able to back off the pedal a little bit. The 2006 Cardinals and the 2000 Yankees, among others, are teams that went into the playoffs ICE COLD, and came out champs. Momentum really doesn't seem to mean anything from a historical perspective, and I think it will all depend on matchups.
If we draw the Padres in the first round, and the Giants take out the Phillies in the opposite bracket, who knows?
