LOL. You claim to be old-school then root for a team that got crushed in their own division again this year (even worse than they did last year). That is as new-school as it gets. You can root for your 2nd place team all you want, just don't claim to be old-school.
The Cardinals have been the biggest beneficiary in MLB of the watered-down playoff structure. Everyone knows it too. You can only be so proud of an 83-win team or 2nd place team that wins the World Series. It is a nice accomplishment but it is not as prestigious as being the best team.
