Re: 9/30 Astros @ Reds
The Cards won 83 games in 2006, limped into the playoffs after a terrible September, and won the world series.
It's a constent reminder that a team that makes the playoffs can win the world sereis.
Sure the Phillies are a great team, but they won about 5% more games than us.
Over a 5 game series, this year they have averaged 2.985 wins, we have averaged 2.785wins.
The difference between even the best major leagues teams and the worse isn't that great in a short series. Between teams who won almost the same number of games is even less.
We may be the underdog, but we have a realistic chance of beating anyone.
