Born and raised, and even I can't explain how it happens time and time again.
They were 6 games out of the normal WC spot and are now in the last two NLCS despite finishing 15 total games out of 1st. In the playoffs its getting in and getting lucky and the Cards are the best team at that in the game.
A money making gimmick is literally the only way they get into the playoffs, no other year in the history of MLB would they have made it but this one and now they are going to go to the WS yet again with a poor record for the 3rd time in 7 years.
If we're going to talk calls.
And the check swing in the 9th the late infield fly, the list can go on forever.
