Re: Man I wish the Reds had Clutch hitting like the Cardinals I hate so much!!!
So they perform in the post season. What else do you want?
Want me to go back and start rattling off teams in various sports that beat teams they weren't supposed to?
How about the 100+ game winning 2004 cardinals getting swept int he world serious by the Sox? Was that a joke too? No. Both teams did what they needed to do under the current rules to be in that position. For one second, stop trying to explain away their "luck" (yes i quoted it) and look at what they've done. In 2006, they weren't supposed to beat the Tigers, but 4 games to 1 is no farce. In 2011, they were going to get steam rolled by the Phillies. Nope. They were supposed to get blasted by the Brewers. Didn't happen. No way they hung with the pitching and hitting of the Rangers. Guess what? it happened. All that cannot be just luck. Love him or hate him. La Russa did one heck of a job last post season and they have continued the hard nosed never give up attitude.
Say what you want, but you can't explain it. Neither an I, but it is impressive and you HAVE to give them some credit. If you don't, it's nothing but sour grapes.
