12-4 and 8-0....completely doable by the Cubs and Astros in a postseason series...8-0 ON THE ROAD.
The Cards split at home then took two on the road. Pure luck. Note my sarcasm.
You keep bringing up that they never would have made it any other year, while true, they did. And now they're in he LCS and the Reds are not. Keep throwing out Kozma stats. He performed. Keep saying they were lucky. You cannot deny they did what they needed to to make the playoffs this year.
As I stated before, do you discredit NCAA teams that take out the #1 seed? No. This is a playoff. The two teams with the bet record don't always make the final.
I realize you're only whining because the Reds couldn't get it done and the Cards did. Were the roles reversed you'd be quoting stats that were in favor of the Reds. As I said before, sour grapes.
