And the Cardinals won 105 games in 2004 and 100 games in 2005 and 97 games in 2002 and 95 games in 2001. 7th NLCS appearance in 12 years. They are simply the best franchise in the National League. They have had serious injuries the past 2 years and have been healthy when it counted. What is scary is that they have one of the 3 best farm systems in MLB. Shelby Miller and Trevor Rosenthal are going to be scary good.
