Re: Go Nationals!
The playoffs are always going to favor the Wild Card teams, to some degree at least, over the dominant division winners because the WC teams have been in playoff mode for at least a month, battling back and forth with every game meaning something.
The dominant division winners like the Reds, meanwhile, are trying to get ready by giving the Wilson Valdezs and Miguel Cairos at-bats.
A lot of good that does. I'd rather be playing stressful baseball all along than try to flip the light switch back on after chilling for the last month.
The Cards, nowhere near the best team in their division let alone baseball, have figured out this dirty secret and are exploiting it.
