Yeah. The Cardinals are the epitome of why it is a bad idea to let 2nd-place teams into the post-season. It cheapens the regular season to have the results of a 162 game season overridden by a 5 game series. It cheapens the championships won by great teams of yesteryear to have their achievement matched by mediocre teams that can't win 90 games and get buried in their own little division.
